This new Netflix series will show you the fantastic world of F1
As a Formula One spectator on a race weekend, one can't really fully, immerse themselves in the sport. Unless, of course, you have an all access VIP pass. But now a new Netflix series, from the makers of Senna and Amy, will give you a never-before-seen side of the sport.
Netflix has revealed that its highly-anticipated Formula 1 series will launch on the service on March 8.
Titled 'Formula 1: Drive to Survive', the series is a gripping, high-octane 10 part series which is the first to give exclusive and intimate access to the greatest racing competition in the world.
You'll finally be able to see what it takes to fight to be number one in this multi-billion-dollar business.
As a new generation of drivers [Charles Leclerc, Max Verstappen, Pierre Gasly] step out of the shadows of the older more experienced rivals and legends of the track [Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen], the scene is set for a new wave of gripping competition and challenges on the grid.
Beginning at the start of the season in Melbourne, the series moves with the teams following each of the races; from Bahrain to Canada, Austria, Singapore, Austin to Brazil, before culminating in the final fight of the season in Abu Dhabi.
Paul Martin from Box to Box Films: "Netflix was the perfect platform on which to tell the inside story of this incredible sport. F1 has long been a world of colourful characters and super-sized ego's, thrills and drama, victory and tragedy but until now that world has been largely hidden and secretive from fans. Formula 1 : Drive to Survive takes the viewers right into the heart of this world and shows what it is like to live, work and race within the world’s fastest sport."
This series is executive-produced by Academy-Award winner James Gay Rees (Senna) and Paul Martin for Box to Box Films. Sophie Todd is the showrunner.
