Following the global success of Drive to Survive’s first series, Formula 1 and Netflix today announced season two will be aired in 2020.
The series will follow teams and drivers at every stage of the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship™, beginning in Australia and travelling with them around the world before culminating in the season finale in Abu Dhabi. This year, for the first time, all ten teams will join the line-up as they battle it out for victory in the greatest racing series in the world. The series will once again take fans behind the scenes with the drivers, team principals and owners, to gain a unique and raw perspective on their lives both on and off the track, showcasing the tension and the glamour of the sport as each team fights to win the championship.
