Popular Netflix docu-series F1: Drive To Survive will be returning to screens for its third season on March 19, with the latest series set to feature the extraordinary tales that were part of the 2020 season from the point of view of drivers, team principals and those on the ground. This season saw many highs and many lows, from Romain Grosjean’s scary accident to Lando Norris’s first podium.
Launching just in time for the 2021 season opener in Bahrain, the 10 episodes of the third season will delve into the 2020 season, which saw Lewis Hamilton matching the most important record of WDC wins, held earlier by Michael Schumacher.
Dramatic driver moves, shocking race wins for the likes of Frenchman Pierre Gasly and Sergio Perez, all between a global pandemic which saw multiple drivers being affected and resulting in the return of Niko Hulkenburg, in place of Lance Stroll and Sergio Perez at certain races were all part of this season.
Produced by the team who gave us films like Senna and Diego Maradona, F1 Drive To Survive builds on the reputation of the docu-series of providing a deeper, in-depth look into the F1 paddock, in between the high drama and tension that is part of the Formula 1 world.
Earlier today, the team responsible for shooting and editing the series announced that all ten episodes had been fully edited, hinting towards the launch, with a computer screen showcasing Romain Grosjean’s lucky escape in Bahrain. Lewis Hamilton was also teased earlier this week in relation to the series.
The third season of Drive to Survive will debut a few days post Pre-race testing and, within a week or two, fans will be able to see the 2021 season commence.
This is a bit of a detour from what happens in usual instances, wherein the show premiered in February, with the season beginning in March. Later today, the F1 Twitter handle sent out this teaser for the show.
