As far as I know Sky Germany showed the replay. Don’t know if they shortened the broadcast though. RTL (free to air) did not schedule a rerun in the first place.
The sky commentators here first thought it could have been a Marshall or somebody around the crane that got hit. I found their handling of the incident to be calm and objective at the time.
I agree that not showing a rerun is not helping anybody. They didn’t show anything that might have been disrespectful to Jules and you can’t just pretend it didn’t happen. Hope he gets well…10th October 2013, 19:04 at 7:04 pm #240937
Just saw the film, absolutely epic! So many great moments that send shivers down your spine.
Reading a few reviews beforehand i was prepared for a couple of inaccuracies and i put some of those down to the difficulties of actually racing priceless classics. They tried to film as much as they could using the real cars and not CG so you have to give them credit for that. I didn’t really mind the little mistakes like upshifting for every overtake etc… The most obvious being Hunt already at the Karusell as Keith mentioned.
The film was clearly not meant to be a documentary and if you don’t have that expectation you can’t help but love it. The close up shots of the cars and the lovely 70s sets are worth watching all on their own.
As for the acting i have to mention that i’m half German and live in Germany. I usually watch films in English but it wasn’t possible this time. Because Lauda does some of the pre-/post race analysis on German tv i can tell you that Daniel Brühl did a perfect impression of him. He sounded just like a younger Lauda, very impressive!
Haven’t enjoyed a movie like this for a long time, a definite thumbs up. Can’t wait for the bluray ;-)5th July 2013, 6:13 at 6:13 am #224702
Any fanatics at T14 today?15th February 2013, 22:12 at 10:12 pm #224716
Good to know. That’s how i remember it from 24h VLN races. Just thought F1 being in another league would make that impossible. Only problem is you can’t really take folding chairs and stuff on the bike :-/ Depends on the weather anyway.

Hi i’m new here and this is my first post, so here goes ;-)
Just bought Tickets for the Race, T14 just before the last turn into start/finish. 89€ for the whole weekend. Not the best spot but you can see the cars going through the chicane and there’s a video wall opposite. I’ve never been to an F1 race before and as this is the last chance to hear those lovely high revving V8s i had to take it.
Will take the Bike if the weather’s nice. Does anybody know what the parking situation is with bikes? I always found a spot at 24h races, but then F1 is something different alltogether ;-)
I’m half German/British and live in Bonn, about 40 min. drive from the track. If anybody needs help getting some info in German or any local(ish) info, please let me know.
Counting the days!
See you there,
