One of the reasons for Formula One’s success is Netflix’s Drive to Survive. The show has brought a lot of attention to the sport, but at the time has a lot of criticism. With three seasons already out on the streaming platform, the show is currently filming its fourth and is said to be following Mercedes this weekend in Qatar.
Fans of the show are well aware of the Netflix curse that it has on the Silver Arrows. An incident that is edged in F1 fans’ memories is the 2019 German Grand Prix, where the Silver Arrows suffered a terrible fate, whilst Netflix was filming them.
Fans are already excited about the title race between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. But they are eager to see the fourth season of Drive to Survive and want to know the behind-the-scenes of the 2021 season.
It is reported for this weekend at the Qatar Grand Prix, the film crew is with the Brackley-based squad. Knowing the influence that Netflix has on the Silver Arrows, fans are nervous to see how the team performs this weekend.
With teams having no knowledge about the track, as it is their first race at the circuit, who do you think will emerge victoriously?
