Sometimes the best stories are the ones driven by real life and this is one such incredible story. Detailing the sometimes bitter rivalry in the 1970s between formula one drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt, this film is truly remarkable.
Directed by Ron Howard and starring Daniel Bruhl, Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde, this high octane drama is only made more unbelievable by the fact that everything that happens in the film is all true. Probably the most outrageous aspect is following his horrific crash that left him with permanent burns, Niki Lauder was back behind the wheel of formula one car a mere 42 days later.
Not just a film for racing fans but fans of good story-telling alike, I give this film a 4.5/5.
