Netflix: “Drive to Survive” season 3 is ready soon / Formula 1

Streaming giant Netflix continues to accelerate when it comes to Formula 1: A crime thriller with world star Robert de Niro is in the works, and season 3 of the successful documentary “Drive to Survive” is soon ready.

For the US media company Netflix, Formula 1 still applies – full throttle. The streaming service and producer of films and series has been pampering fans with the excellent documentary “Drive to Survive” since 2019; Grand Prix fans had rarely come this close to the sport before.

Also in Corona year 2020, the Netflix experts were in the paddock to work on the third season of the documentary. That work is nearing completion, as producer Paul Martin tweeted. He posted a photo of a film processing table, behind it a screen on which world champion Lewis Hamilton can be seen. Martin wrote: “Almost done.”

In 2019 and 2020, seasons 1 and 2 were released in February. Netflix has not yet revealed when season 3 will start. The first trailer should be out soon. The first two seasons were put completely online after completion, i.e. ten episodes at the same time.

Haas team boss Günther Steiner has become a documentary star because of his rustic expression. With the thought of his strong expressions, the South Tyrolean said about the series: “I guess it is unsuitable for my daughter. But why should I pretend? The series is supposed to show Formula 1 as truthfully as possible, and emotions are a very elementary part of Grand Prix racing. I think the Netflix people are very good at showing what makes Formula 1 tick. “

The then Renault star Daniel Ricciardo had invited the Netflix people to Perth and also to his second home in Monaco. «When you welcome a film crew into your own four walls, you want to feel comfortable. The Netflix people have always been respectful. I think the result is very successful, and I hope a lot of people don’t look at it on their smartphones, but on a real screen. It’s a little strange to see yourself in the film. I think I sound very different from how I perceive myself. This project is cool for the whole Formula 1. »

“I am convinced that the Netflix series ‘Drive to Survive’ is a key to the success of Formula 1 in the USA. I feel that the series has changed something in America. Formula 1 has got a bigger showcase. I spend a lot of time in the States, and when the series didn’t exist, I could move about almost unnoticed. I was perceived as a person, but not as a Formula 1 driver. Now I keep hearing: ‘I saw you on Netflix, the show is great!’. “

In addition to the successful documentary, Netflix has launched another project related to Formula 1: A thriller in the premier class, for which Netflix has signed world star Robert de Niro (77) as well as John Boyega (known from the latest “Star Wars” films) 28).

The screenplay, direction and production will be carried out by Gerard McMurray, who has received praise for his Netflix production “Burning Sands” and the horror thriller “The First Purge”. On Instagram, McMurry sketched out roughly what “The Formula” will be about: “A young man from Detroit is working his way up to become an international racing star in Formula 1. His mentor is a man with roots in the Mafia. ” The racing driver is forced to drive escape vehicles to save his family.
