The Formula 1 World Championship began at Silverstone 70 years ago today and to mark the occasion, someone has made this superb video of the event by adding modern graphics onto the old broadcast video
From nailing the nuances of the build-up with fun facts and even a track map through to the race itself, the whole thing is visually superb. But in this case, the whole thing is set off perfectly with the voice of Alex Jacques, F1TV and F2 commentator. It’s also a great way to learn a bit more about that very first race. Enjoy!
