In its third action-packed season, Netflix' series Formula 1: Drive to Survive is the most captivating insight inside the world of Formula One ever produced. From the politics, to engineering mastery, to wheel-to-wheel racing, it exposes the follies and jubilation of one of the most expensive and high-pressure sports in the world.
This year we see the driver market turned on its head, with early season transfers and the resulting political sidelining of drivers. Man mountain and billionaire Lawrence Stroll, takes control of Racing Point (now Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One) and goes head-to-head with McLaren Racing and Renault Sport Formula One, led by the emotional Cyril Abiteboul.
There is plenty of intrigue and of course thrills and spills as drivers compete for the coveted championship, the most dramatic being the equally spectacular and scary crash of Romain Grosjean's Ferrari-powered Haas F1 car in the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix.
Fans will know that Lewis Hamilton captured his seventh World Drivers' Championship title, while Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 claimed the Constructors’ Championship for the seventh time in a row – setting a new world record in the process.
Formula 1: Drive to Survive is captivating television and for F1 fans is worth the Netflix subscription alone. Great fun and highly recommended viewing.
