With a top team behind the cameras, and outstanding performances in front of them, this film has a chance of beating the track record for racing films. Set against the glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, it tells the true story of the great rivalry between the handsome English playboy James Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Austrian driver Niki Lauda. The story chronicles their distinctly different personal styles on and off the track, their loves and the astonishing 1976 season in which both drivers were willing to risk everything to become world champion in a sport with no margin for error.
