Produced by Spitfire Pictures, Flat-Out Films and Diamond Docs, and narrated by Golden Globe nominated actor, Michael Fassbender, 1 is an action documentary that brings the glamor, speed, danger, and excitement of Formula One Grand Prix racing to the big screen.


The film tells the story of the golden age of Formula 1, when the sport became terrifyingly dangerous and the drivers were like rock stars with charisma and raw talent, but with many of them paying the ultimate price. 1 follows the story of the drivers who raced on the edge and those who stood up to change the sport forever. It is about the greatest show on earth – Formula 1 ™.


Racing a Formula 1™ car was never for the faint of heart. But in the late 1960’s the cars doubled the size of their engines and sprouted wings, making them incredibly quick and even more dangerous. With a new worldwide television audience and money pouring in from sponsorship came superstar drivers, thrown like gladiators in to the ring. The men who managed to survive during this era became leaders, standing up to save lives in a sport that was stealing them at an unacceptable rate.


Using rare and archival footage, 1 features the largest list of F1™ interviewees ever assembled. From Bernie Ecclestone, Max Mosley and Dr.Sid Watkins to 12 world champions, past and present (Sir Jackie Stewart, John Surtees, Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mario Andretti, Nigel Mansell, Jody Scheckter, Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button), to Jacky Ickx and Martin Brundle, amongst others.
