3.0 out of 5 stars Jackie Stewart was a legend, 25 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Formula 1 Review: 1971 [DVD] (DVD)
I own many of these titles from the Brunswick archives and I am mostly pleased to have them, they are the only way to see the formula one scene as it was from 1970 to 1980. In many ways I feel that formula one was better in this period for out and out racing, wheel to wheel action and before money rules and sponsors took away many of the reasons why we watched formula one in the first place, action!. These DVD's however are frustrating beyond belief as no actual real racing action is captured on them as Brunswick only use there own footage taken often from one corner on the track and it shows, painfully badly. Nothing worse than watching the drivers put on their helmets for five minutes, sit on the start line waiting for the lights, only for the picture to pause and the announcer to say "And Jones won the race" So where was the race, let me see it, please !!! While races are omitted there is also the totally dreadful der,der,der,der der, der der der der music as the results are being shown, trust me it drives you mad, it will have you screaming for the remote to turn it down. Why cant they use TV footage, lets have a BBC Grand Prix style DVD using their own footage. In summary, its great to see the old drivers (many no longer with us sadly) and reminisce, but these DVD's are poor for any real race action.
