Michael Schumacher second championship win did not always make for riveting viewing.
But there were some controversial clashes with Damon Hill (Britain, Italy) and a few truly excellent races (Belgium, Europe).
The 1995 video, like the 1994 one, represents a significant step forward in the level of detail provided by the FOCA reviews, especially in terms of covering the action lower down the field. Race highlights are interspersed with relevant and interesting featurettes.
