F1: Drive to Survive is one of Netflix’s finest sports documentary series that sees film crews following each Formula 1 series around the world and then editing together a string of the top stories that occurred throughout the F1 season.
We learned of season two around the same time as this year, although for season three, we haven’t heard from an official press statement rather than F1 insiders reporting that the Netflix film crews are once again on the track.
RaceFans first reported that Netflix crews were trackside in July 2020 with F1 HQ confirms it saying:
The biggest story going into the 2020 F1 story is the story that’s been dominating our lives since early 2020. The global pandemic and its effects on every sport including F1.
F1 has had a shortened season with many races bunched up together. Each team is now split up into social bubbles.
On the track, it’s likely that the Pirelli tires will be the main theme with Mercedes, in particular, going through them like there’s no tomorrow.
In terms of the championship rankings, most of the focus will be on the mid-table which has been extremely competitive this year but Mercedes still off into the distance upfront.
The 2020 season is also the 70th anniversary of Formula 1 that was celebrated at Silverstone with the first race having taken place there in 1950.
