Formula 1: Drive to Survive season 5 live stream: preview
Formula 1: Drive to Survive is back for a fifth season. The documentary provides a behind-the-scenes look at the previous year's Formula One season, complete with analysis, background and commentary from those involved. Season five promises the first full appearance – including in-show interviews – from Red Bull driver Max Verstappen. That's big news, considering Verstappen previously criticised the show for fabricating events during the World Championships.
Verstappen is the reigning Formula One Drivers' Champion, having won for the second year running. But he refused to cooperate with the show since season one, after being angered at how he was portrayed. He publicly criticised the show for concocting rivalries between drivers and for making him look arrogant. So it's quite a coup to get him onboard.
The series will cover all the main events of the 2022 Formula One World Championship, of which there were many. Like the ups and downs experienced by Scuderia Ferrari, for instance, or the 'porpoising' effect (when airflow stalls due to the car being too low to the track, causing the car to bounce up) suffered by the Mercedes W13. Then there was Oscar Piastri's contract dispute, and Daniel Ricciardo's disappointing season at McLaren (which saw him criticised publicly by McLaren Racing's CEO Zak Brown before terminating his contract with the team a year early by mutual consent).
So plenty to cover. As with previous seasons, all 10 episodes of Formula 1: Drive to Survive season five will drop on the same day: Friday 24th February, just over a week before the 2023 Formula One World Championship starts with the Bahrain Grand Prix on 5th March. You can watch Formula 1: Drive to Survive season five on Netflix wherever it's available. And if you're abroad, you can watch it from wherever you are using a VPN.
