In the United States, it hasn’t been easy to be a Formula 1 fan. Based on my own fandom that spans the better part of three decades, I’ve spent thousands on F1 memorabilia and merch. And I know very well that Formula 1 fans are no strangers to spending exorbitant amounts of money to support their team or driver.
Black Friday is no longer just the day after Thanksgiving. It’s turned into Black Friday Cyber Monday, which essentially consists of a week (or more!) of sales and deals across the internet. In-store purchasing is mostly not necessary.

An absolute must-watch documentary
The very first F1 race took place in 1950, a long time before cameras were made small enough to mount on race cars. But there are always the early adopters. The crazy ones. The ones that would strap massive cameras to their heads with tape. 50 Years of Formula 1 On-Board will take you on an eye-popping look at the first 50 years of F1 onboard footage.
Watch every race, every on board
