Best F1 DVD review in years
on 27 December 2013
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
