Formula 1: Drive to Survive series to launch on Netflix in March - watch the trailer

Ten-part documentary goes behind the scenes of the motor sport

Formula 1 and Netflix have announced that a new documentary series will launch on the streaming service next month.

Called Formula 1: Drive to Survive the ten-part show goes behind the scenes of the motor sport and gives “unprecedented access to the top drivers, principals and owners”.

From the producers of Senna and Amy, the series will launch on 8 March and is executive-produced by Academy Award winner James Gay-Rees.

Paul Martin of Box to Box Films said: “Netflix was the perfect platform on which to tell the inside story of this incredible sport. F1 has long been a world of colourful characters and super-sized egos, thrills and drama, victory and tragedy but until now that world has been largely hidden and secretive from fans.

“Formula 1: Drive to Survive takes the viewers right into the heart of this world and shows what it is like to live, work and race within the world’s fastest sport.”
