When it comes to vintage documentaries about Formula One racing, no one beats the BBC. This fantastic old film dates to 1981 and covers the Williams Formula One team in the off-season as they develop a new car without the “ground effect” skirts that had been allowed by the FIA until the end of the 1980 season.

The full film is 47 minutes long and I guarantee you, if you’re a fan of vintage motor racing, you’re going to love it.
