“He did it his way” – 1995 F1 season review video

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

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.

The incidental music remains downright awful though, and the commentary is dull at best.

The simmering Schumacher-Hill rivalry makes for great viewing, even if it rapidly becomes very one-sided. But it does showcase some of Schumacher’s very best drives.

Best bit: Hill’s bold, if optimistic, lunge at Schumacher at Priory bend at Silverstone that pitched both drivers into the gravel. He repeated the feat at Monza…

F1 Fanatic verdict
