Can you imagine watching Lewis Hamilton climb out of his Mercedes-AMG F1 car and into an AMG GT3, or an A-Class BTCC car? It would be unprecedented… or would it? See, for the maestros of motorsport, that was just a weekend at the races.

“For me, it was a very exciting period, because I was driving different cars all the time,” says Jackie Stewart. Trying your hand in different disciplines was a part of being a good, well-rounded driver in those days. Just look at Graham Hill. The only driver to ever have won the Monaco Grand Prix, Indy 500 and Le Mans 24 hours. These weren’t just Maestros of F1, they were the Maestros of Motorsport. This film and films to come, are celebrations of those all-rounder drivers.
