Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 3 Details
Let’s take a brief look at the documentary series season 3 first. Formula 1: Drive to Survive season 3 explores the events of the 2020 campaign as one of the best F1 seasons in recent memory of fans. F1 hasn’t cut off the events instead they have had a shortened season with many races bunched up together. The audience is pulled behind the scenes once again to witness firsthand the victory battle of both pilots and teams.
Here’s the official synopsis of season 3:
“The dynamic series returns with another ten parts, following the high-stakes and adrenaline-fueled action of the fastest sport in the world. Only 20 drivers get to compete in Formula 1 and with some of the sport’s top names racing for new teams, 2019 proved to be a season of broken alliances and renewed rivalries. In season 2 for the first time, all 10 teams, including Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 Team and Scuderia Ferrari, gave Netflix insider access as they battled it out for victory in the greatest racing series in the world.”
