48: Netflix-F1 Show, Season 2: Survival of the Funniest


From now until the start of the 2020 Formula 1 season, the most-awaited moment for Formula 1 fans is season 2 of the Netflix-F1 show, Drive to Survive. In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we discuss the key storylines for the show. In fact, we go one step forward – we recommend names for each Formula 1 team’s episode in the show. Tune in!
Here’s what’s in store for you in this episode:
0:00-3:00: Guenther Steiner is going to have a lot of competition to being the star of Season 2 of Netflix-F1’s show, Drive to Survive
3:00-29:00: For Drive to Survive (Season 2), we suggest storylines and episode names for each team
The episode name for:

2. Ferrari – Fast and Furious (Leclerc’s fast, everyone’s furious with Sebastian Vettel for his repeated errors)
3. Red Bull Racing – Musical Chairs or Red Bull-y Racing or Red Bull Roasting (aren’t all episode names self-explanatory?)
4. Mclaren – The Meme Team (let’s get Carlos Sainz-Lando Norris to host the Mclaren episode, they’re the funniest pair in the paddock. In fact, they deserve a full season to celebrate their resurgence)
5. Renault – All Talk, No Pace (they got it all wrong despite having drivers who share names with a super-hero and super-food!)
6. Toro Rosso – Tinder (yes, given how they exist solely to choose a partner for Max Verstappen)
7. Racing Point F1 Team – Rich Dad, Slow Kid (Lance Stroll blows apart the old Motorsport adage – the more the money, the faster you go)
8. Alfa Romeo Racing – The Kimi Raikkonen Show (is there ANY OTHER reason for any of us to cheer for them?)
9. Haas F1 Team – Guenther Steiner (because Steiner’s more popular than both drivers put together and he’s the returning star from Season 1)
10. Williams – Drive To Survive (because they actually are…)
