In 2013, the well-received movie “Rush” took to the box offices, displaying the feud between champions and in a Hollywood-like fashion.

Now comes along ’33 Days – Born to be Wild,’ a new movie … or rather, documentary, which appears to take a more sedated approach to the struggle that Niki Lauda had to overcome from his fiery crash in the 1976 German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, to his solid return at the Italian Grand Prix just 33 days after leaving the hospital.

The movie includes interviews from a variety of Formula 1 personalities from Sir Jackie Stewart to Jochen Mass, David Coulthard, Lewis Hamilton and even Niki Lauda on the life and times of the three-time Formula 1 World Champion, and the ways in which the safety of motor racing has improved over the years.
