F1 Drive to Survive S3: here’s a compilation of storylines we would like to see but may not get to in F1’s docu-show on Netflix
Netflix has made ‘looking back’ at the previous Formula 1 season very cool with it’s F1-only show, Drive to Survive. 19th March is when Season 3 releases – a highly anticipated opening. Understandably, the current chatter is about the storylines Season 3 of Drive to Survive will showcase.
In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal are joined by FIA-accredited journalist Niharika Ghorpade. The trio discuss storylines they would love to see in Netflix’s F1 documentary…but may not get to. If you’re a veteran fan of the sport, chances are that the storylines typically pursued by Netflix might not interest you that much.
Typically, Netflix will focus on driver-team rivalries, hero/zero moments and other politically correct events. But could the show focus on Ferrari’s ‘settlement’ with the FIA around their power unit saga or how Mercedes rose to Ferrari’s power unit challenge?
Will the ever-honest and Netflix-star Guenther Steiner reveal the real reason behind signing Nikita Mazepin? We would also love to see how Red Bull Racing used their political clout to get Formula 1 to sign off an engine freeze from 2022. And of course, Ferrari’s fair(?) treatment of Sebastian Vettel throughout the 2020 Formula 1 season. There are several such interesting & alternative events discussed in this week’s episode that we would hope to see in Season 3 of F1 Drive to Survive.
Have a moment or two of your own that you’d like to see on the Netflix-F1 documentary? Write to us via the Inside Line F1 Podcast Facebook page and we will read out your views in the next episode.
