Formula One fans have been very well-served at the cinema recently, but if you missed these when they were on the big screen they can bee picked up quite inexpensively now.
The superb Senna documentary is the pick of the bunch, though it has been around the longest. Rush is also highly recommended – Ron Howard’s story of the 1976 championship showdown between Niki Lauda and James Hunt raised the bar as far as dramatisations of motor racing are concerned.
The flawed 1: Life at the Limit is harder to recommend, but there’s enough new material and interesting interviews in it to keep an avid F1 fan distracted for two hours of the off-season.

F1 2014 – The official Formula One game
Codemasters’ Formula One franchise is still going strong in its fifth year. The latest edition adds the Red Bull Ring and Sochi Autodrome, plus those dramatically different 2014 cars as well as all the current drivers and teams.
The Formula One world is not short of books about Ayrton Senna, and the twentieth anniversary of his death earlier this year was marked with the arrival of two more. However they were both very good – and “All His Races” stands among the very best.
