1 is an action documentary showcasing the glamour, speed, danger and excitement of Formula One Grand Prix racing. Narrated by Michael Fassbender, the film tells the story of the golden age of Formula 1®, when the sport became terrifyingly dangerous. In the late 1960s, Formula 1® cars doubled their engine size and sprouted wings, making them incredibly quick, but even more hazardous. With money pouring in from sponsorship and a new worldwide television audience, superstar drivers were born, thrown like gladiators into the ring. The drivers were legendary with charisma and raw talent, but many of them paid the ultimate price. 1 follows the story of the drivers who raced on the edge and those who stood up to change the sport forever. It is about the greatest show on earth Formula 1®.

I appreciate the dedication to accuracy and history demonstrated from start to finish.
I've been following F1 since the early 1970s and found this documentary engaging and thoughtfully filled in the back-story and missing links in my knowledge base. The film ranks up there right alongside my all-time favorite motorcycle documentary, On Any Sunday. The soundtrack is terrific; the vintage film footage and photos were superb.
My only criticism of "1" is also shared with the other F1 flick released this year: a complete diss of the Long Beach Grand Prix, which hosted the F1 World Championship from 1976 to 1983.
I went to my first F1 race at COTA in Austin this year (2016). I was talking to the guy next to me on the shuttle bus to the track one day and he recommended this documentary. I'm glad I checked it out.
