Netflix documentary series chronicles the behind-the-scenes drama of the F1 season
Netflix has announced that the third season of the documentary Drive To Survive will debut on the streaming service on March 19. Netflix has also released a trailer for the same.
Drive To Survive was in the shadows thanks to the extreme bio-bubbles that F1 teams operated in, however, a few weeks ago, F1 commentator Will Buxton revealed that the show was indeed in production.
That being said, the series has experienced some logistical issues due to social distancing protocols. For example, there was widespread use of zoom cameras and long-range microphones, and some crew members were assimilated into various teams whose footage they covered.
The third season will cover the delayed and shortened 2020 season which has been massively impacted by the pandemic. However, its growers are already saying it’s the best season they’ve produced, despite the logistical issues.
The season will cover some interesting pieces from the season and feature behind-the-scenes footage. For example, it will show how the two Ferrari cars pulled out in the home race at Monza.
This time around, the season only starts nine days before the start of the F1 season and will take place after the pre-season testing. A full trailer for the show is also in the works, which will likely come after all 10 teams show off their livery for the 2021 season. So far, only McLaren and AlphaTauri have unveiled their 2021 cars.
