“The Official End of Season Review” – 1983 F1 season review video 1st January 2005, 21:04
The quality of the footage on the 1983 review is not very good, and the commentary is simply appalling.
The 1982 season was probably the most important of the eighties – but for all the wrong reasons.
This was the championship it seemed no-one wanted to win.
This is as early as the official FOCA reviews stretch back, and it shows.
Despite the title, this video does not focus as narrowly on Ayrton Senna as the 1992 tape does on Nigel Mansell.
It’s taken a while for FOCA to get their act together with F1 review DVDs – too long, really – but the 2004 DVD delivers the goods.
If you’re putting a collection of these videos together, put this one at the bottom of your wish list. There really is nothing to commend it.
Although there are DVD reviews available for the 2000 and 2001 season, FOM took until 2003 to start putting their own DVD reviews out.
Quite a few of these F1 season review videos have perplexing titles, and this is a prime example.
The 1988 season review video boasts a strong commentating line-up: F1 legend Stirling Moss and top pundit Tony Jardine.
