From Melbourne in March to Abu Dhabi in November, the 2017 Formula 1 season was at times boring and at times exciting and unpredictable – from the nail-biting start with Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel sharing victories to an extraordinary race in Baku that saw both protagonists missing out on a win.
This was then followed by Hamilton’s run of form after the summer break combined with a string of Ferrari debacles in the three Asian races that led to Hamilton taking a British record fourth world drivers’ title in Mexico. Hamilton’s Record Breaking Season takes a look back at the highs and lows of an extraordinary year of F1, including an exclusive interview with Lewis Hamilton and other key members of the paddock.
Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
