Great documentary on Billy, don't know if it will play outside of the UK though.

The first turn of Sunday's Macau F3 race saw a melee of cars colliding and Sophia Floersch's car became airborne after crashing into Jehan Daruvala and then Sho Tsuboi at the Lisboa Bend.
The 17-year-old slid out of control on the outside of track limits and appeared to be vaulted into the air as she passed back over kerbs, hitting Japanese driver Sho Tsuboi before slamming into the temporary structure that housed photographers and marshals.
Tsuboi was discharged from hospital after treatment, while two photographers and one track marshal were also hospitalised.
Floersch's team principal Frits van Amersfoort has revealed that the 17-year-old was travelling at speeds of up to 276km/h (171.6mph) - YES 171mph!!!! - when she was involved in a terrifying crash which left her with a fractured spine.
Van Amersfoort shared his disbelief that his driver was able to survive at such high speeds.
"It was nearly a rocket. Surviving was incredible," he told BBC Radio 5 live.
"We reckon she was travelling at 276km/h (171.6mph) at the time."
"We were lucky that she was flying because she went over a barrier. If she had hit the barrier it would have gone a lot worse."
The stricken driver Sophia Floersch remains in surgery after suffering a spinal fracture. An update posted from the German drivers' social media account confirmed that the German has successfully undergone a first round of procedures.
Here's hoping you get well soon Sophia.
No news yet on why the car was travelling at that speed.

On one hand Brawn is critical of Max's antic then
he turns around and kisses his bottom. Max must think I can
get away with anything now.

Trust them to stick the knife in!
They lost F1 coverage years ago so now they want to help try to bury it in the country who's economy it helps the most.
What a present for us the funders of the BBC. …..We're the stupid

I wonder why Ocon didn't just beat the crap out of
that punk after he pushed him several times after the
race. I'd have loved to see him push AJ.

loved the chance for mouth to damage them. He'd
