Overview

Formula 1 Grand Prix racing is a sport designed to push the limits of human and technological achievement. For decades, however, the standards of car and track safety in the sport failed to meet the demands of the sport, resulting in the deaths of many star drivers.

1: Life on the Limit focuses on the stories of the drivers who risked their lives in the name of racing and worked to push the sport into a new age of safety protocol. Directed by well-known musician and filmmaker Paul Crowder, this documentary features many famous drivers, car designers, and Grand Prix world champions. With tons of real racing footage and interviews with famous drivers, we are given an inside look at the glory and peril of being a Formula 1 driver during the Golden Age of Grand Prix Racing.
