A few years ago I posted that I thought the BBC's F1 title sequence was very good. I think this is even better.

It's only 58 seconds

Does your country do a good one? If so post it

The guy who did them has done others and he's bloody good! Have a look at this bit about Usain Bolt

This one about Ferrari is possibly the best of the lot

I never would have thought that Fleetwood Mac would fit F1 so perfectly.

Yeah, it's weird that 35 years ago someone would pick the last minute of a song and have cars driving over it. In fact, that piece of music has become synonymous with F1 for lots of people (countries often pick up the BBC's coverage for themselves)

Yup, The Chain (my favourite "modern" FM song) fits awesomely. Great video, BTW.

Horrible! Too much cromagnon in that video, one would think that the F1 is sport where you make expensive, sleek and fast cars and smash them into each other or other objects on track randomly, while alcoholized crowd is cheering "Fuck yeah!".
I guess that the creator of the video is a drinker as well, not a yogi.

Where is the zen of driving? 8)

And after all that, you're left with having to watch F1. :P

Other activities have a name for it when you're waiting for something to happen. Intermission. F1 calls it "racing."

For a bunch of computer nerds, mathematicians and physicists I thought you'd like F1. But anyway, the video and music is pretty good at the end of the day. Nice to see a load of old cars in it as well instead of just new ones.

the only reasons to watch F1 is to see humiliated Ferrari officials, an angry and disappointed Alonso and Ferrari fans making an ass of themselves.

Best result of a race?
No Ferrari among the top 3.

Bestest of the best results?
No Ferrari among the top 3. Massa on 4. Alonso way back.
