Netflix has revealed the first look trailer for their upcoming 10 part series from the makers of ‘Amy’ and ‘Senna’, ‘Formula 1: Drive to Survive’.
The series will begin in Melbourne where the world of high stakes, adrenaline and passion that underlies Formula 1 is launched. From there the series moves with the teams following each of the races; from Bahrain to Canada, Austria, Singapore, Austin to Brazil, before culminating in the final fight of the season in Abu Dhabi, where scores are there to be settled.
Paul Martin from 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 ego’s, 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.”
The series is executive-produced by Academy-Award winner James Gay Rees (Senna) and Paul Martin for Box to Box Films. Sophie Todd is the showrunner.
The series launches on Netflix from March 8th.
