For years he stood in the cupboard next to the video recorder. The band with the beautiful documentary series The Team, a season with McLaren from the BBC. Often watched, but as with video tapes; the quality is declining and after two relocations ago the video recorder ended up in the garbage bin, the fate of the band was also sealed. And how wonderful it is to be able to see the entire seven-part series again ... on YouTube.

Inside track tells the story of 1993. Certainly not a great year for the team then team boss Ron Dennis. The magical Honda bikes that have made the team so successful in recent years are making their way and star rider Ayrton Senna would prefer to do the same. Only there is no other team that can have him and so the Brazilian negotiates a new contract every weekend. For two days.

That background and the openness of Mclaren provide a great look into the kitchen of a Formula 1 team. You look over the shoulders of the engineers as they fight to get Senna's smashed MP4 / 8 ready for training in Monaco within two hours. A race that he also wins with the patched-up car.

But you also look Mika Hakkinen in the eye, just after he unintentionally ended his debut race for McLaren by getting off Estoril. It is almost touching how Dennis taps the future world champion on his shoulders and says he can be satisfied with his performance. To add it outside in front of the motorhome door that it won't really hurt until Monday, because this was one they could have won.

Without knowing it, the makers also made a real time document. 1993 is the last season of the great Senna. In 1994 he starts for Williams. His third match there will be the last. The triple champion dies in a Bologna hospital after an accident at Imola. In retrospect, the BBC films its last victory. The Australian GP of 1993. The title of the episode about this, now gives goose bumps: Goodbye to all That.
