Netflix’s behind the scenes Formula 1 docu-series “Formula 1: Drive to Survive” will return for its third season exactly two weeks from today on March 19th. The series was filmed during the 2020 F1 season. For those not familiar with the show, it takes a behind the scenes look at the teams and drivers in Formula 1 as well as exclusive cockpit footage and recordings of the races. Season 1 premiered in March 2019 and brought a whole new audience into the world of the motor sport.
Launching just ahead of the 2021 season opener in Bahrain, the 10 episodes of Series Three of F1: Drive To Survive will delve into the unprecedented 2020 season, which saw long-standing records smashed by Lewis Hamilton, dramatic driver moves, and shock victories for the likes of Sergio Perez and Pierre Gasly – all set to the backdrop of racing under the coronavirus pandemic, which forced the planned season start to be aborted, and saw a number of drivers sidelined after contracting the virus.
