This documentary offers an interesting behind-the-scenes look at what drives Formula One racing. It underscores the pressure on F1 teams to perform well and satisfy shareholders, and showcases the time and effort that goes into designing and building a successful racing car. The importance of getting high-profile sponsors to pay for the car is also highlighted.

Interviews with key players of the franchise (none of whom are women) offer interesting details about this racing world. In addition, Grand Prix Driver offers F1 enthusiasts lots of voyeuristic moments, interesting backstories, and, of course, plenty of racing footage. It may seem dull if you're not a fan of the sport, but it offers a lot to those who are.
