Netflix hit series, Drive To Survive brings fans behind the scenes of Formula One and the teams. The 2020 season was like the rest of the world severely impacted by the COVID-19 global pandemic which saw the season opener in Australia was abandoned due to the pandemic as teams scrambled to get home before borders closed.

McLaren was the first team to be impacted by COVID-19 as a number of the traveling team to contract COVID 19 and was forced to quarantine in Melbourne for two weeks.

When the season eventually got underway, although Mercedes dominated during the season there was plenty of action throughout the field including Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez’s first career Formula One victory for Racing Point before joining Red Bull Racing for the 2021 season.

In the most dramatic season to date, fans will once again be taken behind the scenes, to witness first-hand how the drivers and teams battle it out for victory in a year like no other.

Drive To Survive Season 3 was filmed during COVID 19 with all film crew observing social distancing. Here is what Netflix had to say ahead of the new season:

Fans will be given unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the 2020 season which saw the sport dramatically halted in Australia due to the COVID-19 pandemic and make a thrilling restart in Austria later that year. Intense battles, fierce rivalries, unexpected podiums, and Lewis Hamilton’s incredible seventh world title will ensure the series is one of the most action-packed yet.

This series is executive-produced by Academy-Award winner James Gay-Rees (Amy, Senna) and Paul Martin (Diego Maradona) for Box to Box Films.

Drive To Survive season one is currently airing on Sky Sports F1HD and Sky Documentaries.
