Formula 1 and Netflix have confirmed that their docuseries “Forumula 1: Drive to Survive” will return for a second season early in 2020. The series, which launched in March 2019, will follow the F1 teams as they battle through the 2019 season with exclusive access to the drivers, teams, cockpits and paddocks. Season 2 will see Mercedes and Ferrari joining after they refused to participate in the first season – citing that it would be too much of a distraction. Cameras have been allowed access during the first part of the season before the second series deal was confirmed.
We are thrilled to once again be working with Netflix on the second series of Drive to Survive. It is a truly unique series which allows fans to see the unseen side of F1, showcasing the personalities and emotions each team and driver goes through, both on and off the grid. Drive to Survive has enabled us to reach a entire new fanbase globally and partnering with Netflix for a second season ensures we are continuing to put fans at the heart of what we do and make the sport more open and accessible to all.
