February date for Mc-Honda doc series

Date published: January 12 2018

Amazon Prime have revealed that all episodes of the new documentary series, ‘Grand Prix Driver’, will be available to stream from February 9.

Grand Prix Driver goes behind-the-scenes of McLaren’s final and fatal year with Honda starting with their disastrous showing at the pre-season tests and finishing with the announcement of their divorce in Singapore back in September.

Actor Michael Douglas has narrated the series, while Manish Pandey and Asif Kapadia – who made the Ayrton Senna documentary – also form part of the crew charting McLaren-Honda’s downfall.

“It’s no secret that this has been the most difficult season in McLaren’s history and it would have been easy for them to close the doors on us,” said Pandey.

“Instead, the team trusted Prime members to understand the mind-blowing complexity of modern Formula 1 and to recognize that all competitors take falls – but only great champions get up again, fight and win.”

Fans will be able to go behind closed doors as the crew were given access to key meetings which eventually led to McLaren and Honda going their separate ways.
