In March 2018 Formula 1 and Netflix announced a joint project that would be recorded throughout the 2018 F1 season. We now have a title, trailer and release date: “Forumula 1: Drive to Survive” will arrive globally on March 8th. The series gives Netflix exclusive access to the drivers, teams, cockpits and paddocks throughout the season.
From the makers of Senna and Amy, this series will reveal the true story of the sport – not only the fight to be number one, but the battle for the heart, soul, and direction of this multi-billion-dollar business.
Beginning in Melbourne where the world of high stakes, adrenaline and passion that underlies Formula 1 is launched. From there 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, where scores are there to be settled.
