1988 saw McLaren-Honda rewrite the record books as they redefined performance - taking 15 wins out of 16 races between them - and this action-packed review retells the thrilling story from beginning to end. The last year of turbo engines was suitably thrilling, albeit almost completely dominated by the McLaren team mates Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost. They may have been driving for the same team but the two biggest stars of the 1980s were, unsurprisingly, extremely motivated. Neither gave an inch to the other on track, leading to several clashes, and sowing the seeds for future rivalry. What the drivers said, how the teams worked, who held the joker at Monza and how the teams travelled the World; all these fascinating questions are answered when Stirling Moss and Tony Jardine give you your pass to the pitlane.

Enzo Ferrari was certainly one of the most powerful names, and probably one of the most powerful and influential men, in motoring history. As a young boy, Enzo dreamt of being an opera singer, a journalist or a racing driver, instead he created one of the most recognised company names in the modern world. During his 50-year reign he rarely left Maranello the spiritual home of his beloved race teams and birthplace of the sports cars against which all others are judged and remained a very private man. This superb racing documentary by acclaimed Formula One producer John Tully reveals the essence of the man and his machines. The story is told from childhood, through 4 decades of racecar development, to a visit by the Pope (in an open top Ferrari Pope-Mobile of course!) shortly before Ferrari s death in 1988. Narrated by Christopher Lee, this is the definitive Ferrari documentary.
