3.0 out of 5 stars Could be so much better, 7 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Formula 1 2006: Once Again! [DVD] (DVD)
OK so the good stuff first, you get almost four hours of review and you get to watch Schumacher breaking down in Suzuka and lose his farewell title which makes me smile every time I watch it, as after years of his domination he finally has luck go against him at last and Alonso rightfully takes the title.

The bad news is considering the amount of time wasted on pointless features which do nothing but distract you from the action.

At Malaysia for example we waste a load of time learning about pitstops and talking to Renaults lollypop man.

At Imola we decide to take six minutes out to look at the career of Gerhard Berger and leave us only four minutes for the race, completely failing to capture any of the excitement and tension of the battle between Alonso and Schumacher.

At Monaco we spend longing learning the track with Tiago Monteiro than we do watching the race.

And by far the most irritating thing is the way we have to constantly look at the pit wall and the garages after EVERY single incident. I can now pick Nick Fry, Christian Horner, John Button and countless others from a crowd due to the amount of time spent watching them watch the race.

The upside of this is you get to play spot the mechanic, seeing if you can spot the Ferrari guy with the daft mustache becomes more fun than Where's Wally.

Some of the footage is entertaining watching Christian Horner jump into a swimming pool in a batman cape at Monaco is hilarious as is Keke Rosbergs reaction to Schumachers little parking trick at Monaco.

So its not bad but it could just be a lot better. Maybe next year.
