About the project

Formula 1: Drive to Survive is a gripping, high-octane 10 part series, which for the first time in the sports history a series has been given exclusive and intimate access to the greatest racing championship in the world.

This series is executive-produced by Academy-Award winner James Gay Rees (Senna, Amy) and Paul Martin for Box to Box Films.

Formula 1 has opened its doors to give unprecedented access to the top drivers, team principals and owners. The series also takes time away from the circuit to provide a unique insight to the teams and the people that make the championship what it is.

The Week: Score 5/5

“With so many interesting characters and subplots the racing is almost just a backdrop. And any of the action that is shown comes via lots of never-seen-before footage and camera angles not used during the regular season broadcasts. Seriously, it’s gripping stuff.”

Autosport: Score 5/5

“Gritty yet cinematic Netflix F1 series … The whole show has a cinematic-style that looks beautiful and is worth hooking up to surround-sound speakers. Each on-track shunt is accompanied by a deafening deep bass thud.”
