Between 1998 and 2000 I worked for Sportpaleis de Jong as director of several segments and during the 1999/2000 season also as general editor of the weekly episode.
One of the short films I made for Sportpaleis was Kampioen van de Wanhoop (Champion of dispair).
An atmospheric portrait of Maranello, the Italian village where the factory of Ferrari stands, on the day that the Formula One World Championship was decided. A championship that at the time was not won by Ferrari in twenty years.
