Formula 1 on Netflix Drive to Survive, seasons one and two, gave us unprecedented access backstage. We look forward to the third iteration that will deepen the affected pandemic.
The shortened season of the 2020 F1 championship. Finally arriving as before, F1: Drive to Survive, Season 3 delivered exactly as expected.
We may have more information about a championship than Drive to Survive reports. So what we’re talking about may not be spoilers, but we’ll try not to spoil the experience.
The dramatization of the show, the backstage reactions throughout the series was delightful.
Some people may not like that the series doesn’t follow the chronological path. Of the plot that Drive to Survive takes.
Even so, the storytelling is good and easy to follow. However, as a staunch supporter of this sport. I do not believe that ordinary spectators can easily capture the entire image.
Season 3, of course, kicks off with a drama emerging from pre-season testing. The Racing Point car shows and hits the racetrack like a supermodel and one that all eyes follow.
Somewhat for conflicting reasons for the so-called “pink Mercedes“. This was followed by Mercedes’ sophisticated DAS management system. Which gave them a clear advantage throughout the season and continued to win championships.
It’s also interesting to see what’s going on behind the scenes. What people think before the Australian Grand Prix is canceled.
After several reported coronavirus cases in Pado, Liberty Media canceled the race, and we all know what happened next.
Two of the truest and most heartbreaking moments of the season gave us two episodes that made us feel good.
One of them is Pierre Gasley’s drop from Red Bull last year. To a triumphant win and the result at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in 2020 for Alpha Tauri.
Second, the story behind Sergio Perez, who despite being loyal to Racing Point. Then winning the Sakhir Grand Prix after being burdened from behind.
That then continued to get Alex Albon out of Red Bull and replace him for the 2021 season. Alex Albon probably wanted to avoid watching season 3 alone because they saw him in the series.
Ferrari’s 2020 problems with the departure of four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel. The rivalry between Valteri Botas and Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes.
The mental battle against his critics is well reflected in this series. However, the race for third place in the championship between Racing Point, McLaren, and Renault is the biggest talking point. Of course, Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz, and Daniel Ricciardo were also on the show, and Perez and Lance Stroll.
Günther Steiner, first season rock star and Haas F1 team director, gets his usual decent showtime.
This reflects why Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen left the sport. The Haas team was replaced by two rookie riders. Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin, who will join the team in 2021.
It is remarkable that the show also touched on the competition between Haas. The similarly equipped but shaped team of the Alfa Romeo F1 and its drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi. Raikkonen’s fans will appreciate that she ended up.
Taking part in the series in her own special and open, if small, way. Of course, that’s comedic gold as usual, but Portugal’s turbulent start could also integrate, I think.
The final episode hits the grim tone of Louis Hamilton’s struggle. Against racism and his use of his platform to bring about change.
However, we think some things could better describe, and some moments should at least mention some moments of the season.
For example, George Russell, who drove a Mercedes at the Sahir Grand Prix to prove his worth. Russell looks more or less from season three. Apart from a few mentions, he replaced the Hamilton and Mercedes lineup.
Ravid Point’s NicoHulkenberg appearances for Kovid meet Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll:
His appearances at Silverstone and the Nürburgring are never mentioned. The Hulk only appeared briefly as a poster in the background.
After all, at some point, everyone would likely be watching. The horrific fall that caused Romain Grosjean’s fireball at the Bahrain Grand Prix. All catastrophic events, which last for a few moments in real life. It takes too long to be dramatized, in my opinion.
It felt like forever for Grosjean to get out of the fireball. He was able to aim with more respect. But it’s great to see him doing well in his darkest moments. They are finding humor and talking about it in an interview with his wife on the show.
Drive to Survive season 3 can be a mix of emotions. But also the Formula 1 season itself in 2020. However, the worst thing about this series. It is that we now have to wait another year to reach the fourth season.
However, the 2021 Formula 1 season will finally start on March 26-28. When we find out if Mercedes is really on its back foot and finally Red Bull. They will have a car strong enough to give them a chance to fight against the forces.
