20 Episodes Sport

RIGHTS: Worldwide

‘Legends of F1®’ offers a compact yet in‐depth insight into the lives of some of the sport’s most successful, engaging and respected characters.


Episode 1: Jody Scheckter


For 21 years between 1979 and 2000, South Africa’s Jody Scheckter held something of a unique title - Ferrari’s last World Champion. He remains the only driver from his country to reign over the top level of motorsport.

Episode 2: Alan Jones


Winning in sport for the first time always holds a special resonance. For Australia’s Alan Jones that comes in the form of being the first man to win the World Championship for one of Formula 1’s most historic teams, Williams.

Episode 3: Jack Brabham


Three World Championships and 14 Grand Prix victories attest to Australia’s Sir Jack Brabham’s skill behind the wheel but it’s his abilities as an engineer that have arguably left the greatest legacy.

Episode 4: Murray Walker


He may not have been a driver, but such was the iconic status that Murray Walker achieved during his time behind the microphone commentating on Formula 1 that he remains more well-known and loved than many a World Champion.

Episode 5: Emerson Fittipaldi

1h 0m

Sky Sports F1’s Steve Rider sits down with the two-time champion by just 27, who showed that age, and a relative lack of experience in the pinnacle category of motorsport, should not necessarily be a barrier to championship success.

Episode 6 : Jackie Stewart

1h 0m

Triple World Champion Jackie Stewart is one of the greatest racing drivers of all time, he pioneered the sport’s drive to improve safety standards, became a success in the business world and returned to F1 to become a team owner.

Episode 7: Nigel Mansell

1h 0m

Brave, determined and bold - he was the ultimate racer’s racer and the 1992 World Championship was the very least his racing talents deserved.

Episode 8: Mario Andretti

1h 0m

He deliberately set out to really do it all, danced on the limit longer than anyone and won in a mind-boggling array of disciplines. What’s more he succeeded. Ladies and gentleman, we give you 1978 World Champion Mario Andretti.

Episode 9: Mika Hakkinen

1h 0m

Finland’s only two-time World Champion, Mika Hakkinen was known as the ‘Flying Finn’ and for anyone who raced against him at his peak it was no wonder.

Episode 10: Stirling Moss

1h 0m

Mr Motor Racing. The best driver to never win the world championship. A 16-time grand prix winner (from just 66 starts), Sir Stirling was a trailblazer - and a classy one at that. A true British sporting icon if there ever was one.

Episode 11: John Surtees

1h 0m

John Surtees remains the only man to have been World Champion on two and four wheels. It was an astonishing achievement and one which seems increasingly unlikely to ever be matched.

Episode 12: Tony Brooks

1h 0m

Brooks, who originally trained as a dentist, isn’t one of Britain’s more high-profile former F1 race winners, the racer nonetheless still more than carved his name into the history books across just 38 starts between 1956 and 1961.

Episode 13: Gerhard Berger

1h 0m

A ten-times grand prix victor, Gerhard Berger made his legendary name in F1 during stints with McLaren and Ferrari.

Episode 14: Eddie Irvine

1h 0m

It’s easy to forget that but for a handful of points it would have been Irvine, and not Michael Schumacher, who would have ended Ferrari’s two-decade Drivers’ Championship drought at the turn of the century.

Episode 15: Alain Prost

1h 0m

Four World Championships, 51 wins, and a podium strike rate of better than one in two shows just how consistent Alain Prost proved to be over his 13 years in the sport. That’s why he fully deserves his place among the elite.
