Hunt vs Lauda

Witness the battle for Formula 1 supremacy between Britain's swashbuckling James Hunt and the scientific Austrian, Niki Lauder. Featuring exclusive interviews and unseen footage from 1976.

The victory duel for the 1976 Formula 1 Championship has become the stuff of legend. The spectacular battle for supremacy that raged all season between the cool, scientific Austrian Niki Lauda and Britain’s partying, womanising James Hunt has never been equalled. Could Hunt close the huge points gap between him and Lauda? Could Lauda overcome an appalling crash to come back from the dead and fight James to the last race of the season? This powerful story captures the heart of the 1970s - told through unseen footage and exclusive interviews with the people who were really there: the team managers, families, journalists and friends who were in the front row of the season that changed Formula 1 forever.
