Great season, great review,
This review is from: Formula 1 Review: 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
I thoroughly enjoyed recalling the great F1 season we have just watched with the help of this DVD. It includes the main parts of each race that are essential to piece together the way each race went, and the latest news is well integrated into the season. I also liked the way it dealt with the farce that was Indianapolis 2005 responsibly, just describing the events rather than using it as an opportunity to air the views that the producers had on the event. At over 3 hours long, this is a lengthy but enjoyable way to reflect on the start of a new era.
Why not 5 stars? It says on each race menu 'On Pole', which should show the pole lap. However, only several times does the pole driver describe his lap. More often than not, a different driver (eg. Scott Speed at Indy and Vitantonio Liuzzi at Monza) describes their lap. That's not what I wanted! Some of the pole position laps this season were simply stunning, but instead we listen to an average driver harping on about their own lap, which is from practice and nothing special! A small glitch in what is a good DVD. Ben Edwards is a great narrator. If only he commentated on F1 for ITV!
