1 or 1: Life On The Limit is a 2013 documentary film directed by Paul Crowder and narrated by Michael Fassbender. The film traces the history of Formula One auto racing from its early years, in which some seasons had multiple fatalities, to the 1994 death of Ayrton Senna, the sport's most recent death at the time of production.Extensive and often rare archival footage is used throughout.
The film opens with a brief look at the early days of Formula One racing in the 1950s, which was essentially a resumption of prewar Grand Prix racing. In 1957, the FIA announced the Formula One World Constructors' Championship for the makers of the winning car. This led to a wave of British privateer teams, nicknamed "Garagistas" by Enzo Ferrari, dominating the Championship. Most notable was Team Lotus, led by Colin Chapman.
In 1966, the FIA doubled the engine size from 1.5 to 3 litres, which saw the cars race markedly faster on tracks and facilities unchanged since before World War II. This resulted in several fatal accidents, including Clark at the Hockenheimring in 1968. From this point, several drivers—including Clark's Lotus replacement, Jochen Rindt, and the Grand Prix Drivers' Association (GPDA)—began questioning the sport's safety. Rindt himself was killed during practice at the 1970 Italian Grand Prix, although he was still the posthumous champion that year.
Set in the golden era of Grand Prix Racing '1' tells the story of a generation of charismatic drivers who raced on the edge, risking their lives during Formula 1's deadliest period, and the men who stood up and changed the sport forever.
