What to watch on F1 TV – Our presenters pick their favourite shows ahead of the new season

F1 TV -

F1 TV has a treasure trove of features, highlights and exclusive shows – and of course live race coverage (depending on your location) – so subscribers are spoiled for choice. With so much on offer, who better to recommend a show than the F1 TV presenters themselves?

We asked Will Buxton, Laura Winter, Rosanna Tennant, Lawrence Barretto and Jolyon Palmer to offer us their must-see F1 TV picks ahead of the new season...

Will Buxton's pick: Beyond All Limits (2021)

With so much choice on F1 TV, I’ve decided to go for something a little bit different. While I’m extremely proud of the work that we do on our regular live shows, Formula 1’s ability to delve into footage and interviews from every decade of the sport puts it in a unique position to create special projects that really stand out from the crowd.

Factoring in its pull on the biggest names of today, it often creates real one-off gems and that was never better exemplified over the last few years than with Beyond All Limits.

Not only was this three-part series a fascinating look behind the scenes of the 2021 season, but it brought insight from psychologists, journalists and some of the greatest champions the sport has ever known – both newly recorded and from the archive.

Its achievement was to create a rounded view of how every champion differs and which traits bind them together.

Laura Winter's picks: Singapore Pre-Race Show and Japan Post-Race Show (2022)

These were two unforgettable race weekends, and not necessarily for pure racing action.

In our Singapore Pre-Race Show, the heavens opened – an absolute deluge – and as the start was delayed by over an hour, our tight, well-oiled one-hour show was extended.

Watch as running orders fly out the window, our small but brilliant team filled the extended airtime with content, and we offer a world exclusive – and impromptu – tour of the broadcast centre, where the World Feed of every second of action is produced.

Reacting to what has just unfolded in the Post-Race Show is always an absolute thrill, and the Japanese Grand Prix was pretty extraordinary – as Max Verstappen had been crowned world champion – or had he? In the drizzly gloom of Suzuka, we unpacked the action, analysed how and why he’d secured the points he needed, and spoke to the key protagonists.

Lawrence Barretto's pick: Inside Story – How Ricciardo Stormed Monza (2021)

The Inside Story series underlines just how exceptional our team of editors and producers really are. And I’m sure the 2021 Italian Grand Prix wasn’t an easy one to unpack.

This race was full of action, from Antonio Giovinazzi’s early crash to that unforgettable scrap between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen that ended up with both drivers in the gravel.

F1 TV takes it to another level with team radio from the drivers and pit wall, telling the story from a whole new perspective. Two years later, and the inside story of McLaren’s shock one-two at Monza is still worth watching.

What made that weekend even more special was Ricciardo performing a ‘shoey’ from my left boot in the post-race interview. I still have that shoe…

Rosanna Tennant's pick: The Story of the 2022 F1 Season

If like me you’re counting down the hours and minutes until the new season begins, you’ll love this video. It’s a great way to whet your F1 2023 appetite – a fast-paced review of everything we enjoyed on and off-track in 2022. You’ll relive loads of the incredible wheel-to-wheel racing and see some of the heart-stopping moments like Zhou Guanyu’s huge crash at Silverstone.

The brilliant editors manage to weave together commentary, music and the best soundbites from the drivers and team principals to help tell all of the season’s different storylines – they even get Charles Leclerc’s blood curdling “Nooooooo!” during the French Grand Prix in there too!

And of course, once you’ve watched it through to the end, you’ll be nearly eight minutes nearer to lights out in Bahrain…

Jolyon Palmer's pick: Jolyon Palmer’s Analysis – Classics, Canada 2011

The longest race in modern Formula 1 history and a race full of action, the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix remains one of F1’s epic battles.

Pedro de la Rosa – who was on standby for Sauber in Canada – replaced an unwell Sergio Perez at Montreal that Sunday and he joined me for this episode. Pedro offers his brilliant analysis to pick apart the many talking points from a race that began in torrential rain and ended in the dry, with many thrills and spills along the way.

Picking apart the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix was no mean feat but this episode (hopefully) does it justice. Of course, I enjoy analysing the latest Grands Prix – but you can’t go wrong with a classic.
