Yesterday seemed like pretty much any other Sunday, right? Well, if you’re a motorsports history buff, it wasn’t, because February 15, 2015 would have been Graham Hill’s 86th birthday. Between his substantial talent, dashing good looks and colorful personality, it’s no wonder the mustachioed Englishman was the hero of a great many youths back in the day; one of them, as it turns out, was actor Jeremy Irons. The Academy Award winner recently hosted this hour-long documentary tracing the story of Hill, the only driver ever to win the Formula 1 World Championship, the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We would absolutely call it a “must-watch,” so press that play button, won’t you?
