Tv Season Info

The dynamic series returns with another ten parts, following the high-stakes and adrenaline fueled action of the fastest sport in the world. Only 20 drivers get to compete in Formula 1 and with some of the sport's top names racing for new teams, 2019 proved to be a season of broken alliances and renewed rivalries. This year for the first time, all 10 teams, including Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 Team and Scuderia Ferrari, gave Netflix insider access as they battled it out for victory in the greatest racing series in the world.

It picks and probes at all the salient issues of F1, exploiting an amazing degree of backstage access and brilliant high-def action photography to... knit together a sequence of penetrating short documentaries.

Audience Reviews for Formula 1: Drive to Survive: Season 2

  • Mar 29, 2020
    Great to see Mercedes and Ferrari join the mix. Well filmed and produced.
  • Mar 22, 2020
    Tells the story of the people involved with F1. Although the races are in the show, the focus is on the emotions of the people, rather than the highlights of the race.
  • Mar 13, 2020
    Season 1 but better and with Ferrari and Mercedes. Seriously worth watching.
  • Mar 09, 2020
    Where's Kvyat, Raikkonen, Norris, Giovinazzi, Perez and Stroll? Rubbish talk show without any insides or new information.
  • Mar 03, 2020
    This is a must see for F1 fans.

    Found season 2 to be very poor. Generalising, on the whole it felt more like the extended race weekend coverage we're used to seeing on Sky F1 with the occasional behind the scenes albeit very staged and forced interactions. Season 1 felt raw and fly-on-the-wall, this came across like the teams knew what to expect now and had their guard up the whole time. I appreciate the need to protect IP and confidential information but there was just very little of what made season 1 great, and too much of what we get every race weekend by default. Pretty clear too that the narrative was too strongly dictated by the teams, one example... an entire episode dedicated to the worst ever season in Williams history yet... that wasn't mentioned? It wasn't mentioned that they only picked up 1 point the entire season? In an entire episode dedicated to the team, to not mention these very relevant facts just made me feel like I'm watching a legal/PR controlled team trailer rather than a documentary. On one hand you could argue of course they're not going to want to say that, on the other, I'd say they should it's a documentary covering that teams season... We heard audio only of guenther steiner absolutely lashing his drivers following the Silverstone incident... but after that, nothing? There was no further word on the Haas driver issues, no further word on the tire issues, the Rich Energy saga was given a pretty sad and forgettable 3 minute segment which again... only touched on the details which were already disclosed publicly. Overall whilst there was some touching moments, like the Hubert incident, and the show has outstanding production quality and is very well put together, it's let down by being too curated by the teams and too much in parity with Sky's F1 race coverage. Driver interviews, paddock pass, panning shots of the cars jacked up in the garage etc... none of us really waited a year to see more of that. I watched all 10 episodes and didn't feel like I learned much at all from what was already aired across the previous year. I'm giving it a hard time because I feel like it's a regression from season 1, but I still enjoyed it as I'm a hardcore F1 fan, anyone who is will also enjoy it... Unless you can't stand Daniel Ricciardo as in that case, you might find this season as intolerable as the last.

    Really surprised not to see Bahrain Grand Prix and Leclerc's engine problem. For some reason Grosjean is hyped up. Not even a word about Sebastian Vettel's penalty at Canadian Grand Prix. No Hamilton's brilliant strategy call against Verstapen or Kvyat and Albon battling it out at Hungarian Grand Prix. Also they didn't show Max getting held up in the pits and overtaking Hamilton at Brazilian Grand Prix. Alex Albon's mom had more air time then many of the drivers including Lando Noris,Kvyat,Perez,Stroll,Räikkönen and Giovinazzi. Alfa Romeo wasn't mentioned at all. Yea,some pretty important and cool moments just left out.

    This season is very disappointing. The stories covered were mostly repetitive and covered in other official F1 videos like the Paddock Pass throughout the season. I got a feeling that the Netflix production team was not very welcomed by the teams and most of the big team members were much more cautious in answering questions and sharing their thoughts.

    Absolutely brilliant behind the scenes look at F1. My daughter and I watch every race weekend from beginning to end, and yet Drive to Survive was totally captivating and filled with details I didn't know. It's an emotional rollercoaster of racing entertainment. Highly recommended! :)
