Weekend of a Champion starring F1 champ Jackie Stewart now playing on Netflix

Now playing on Netflix, Weekend of a Champion (alternately titled Afternoon of a Champion) is the 1972 British documentary film that captures Formula One racing driver Jackie Stewart competing in the 1971 Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo.

It was almost destroyed by the Technicolor Labs in London while clearing out its archives. Roman Polanski rescued the film and the rest, as they say, is history.

Great flick on Formula One – watch it while you can on Netflix.
