Recent F1 reviews on DVD have been a disappointment (2012 was a particularly poor effort) but this year's season review has been put together extremely well.

Whereas previous years have just provided race highlights with little or no narrative given to events off-track, the 2013 DVD tells the story of the year, with coverage of pre-season testing and the young driver test, key incidents in practice/qualifying plus the fallout from "Multi 21" and the "secret" Pirelli test, a Mark Webber retrospective, and the tragedies of Mark Robinson and Maria De Villota.

Some minor negatives: When selecting individual races (as opposed to select play from the start) only the race itself is shown which is a minor inconvenience. Also, the DVD is almost devoid of any extras, save for the obligatory driver profiles (although the quality of the main feature does not make this a big issue for me personally).

Despite not being a classic season (far from it), this has ironically been the most enjoyable DVD to watch for many years. Hopefully the official F1 review keeps up this standard for future years.

PS: this is a review of the DVD rather than Blu-Ray

This review like previous years captures all the important action from this season especially the fallout from malaysia. The only problem is the length as it is considerably shorter than the 2012 review but also shorter than the last several years whether this is due to this being on single disc rather than two I don't know but could have been longer.

The review arrived at Christmas and as I had followed the season on the telly, I was very much looking forward to seeing it.

I was somewhat disappointed to notice a lack of bonus features like in previous ones but when I watched the actual review, that was a different story. Not only was it a single disc review, it had the special interviews and archive footage to help the story go along.

I'm particularly pleased at how they managed to squeeze in all the memorable moments throughout the season such as the post-race interviews on the 'Multi 21' incident, the crash-strewn Monaco GP, the tense Q3 session in Belgium, John Surtees' interview about the Monza circuit, the look back at Mark Webber's F1 career and the race in India that gave the ever-great Sebastian Vettel his fourth consecutive world championship.

This season review has every last special moment included and I would recommend it to those who would want a review that contains more than just the racing action.

Bought this as a relative newcomer to F1, a few weeks before I went to this years Monaco race.! A good summary of the F1 season still to come for a rookie to the sport.

Having collected the last 10 or so years, this is more of the same. Good but not great

An occassional montage with music and drama (which the TV throw together straight after each Grand Prix) would be nice.

The annual F1 Review is always good. When the year's highlights are condensed into one DVD it all seems so much more watchable.
