Formula 1 drivers become Hollywood stars. The creators of the Formula 1 series “Drive to Survive” are responsible for this. The Netflix film team has been producing episodes on the premier class of motorsport since 2018. It is now clear that the camera team from the US media group will also accompany the teams in the paddock in 2022 and 2023.
According to Nelson Sports, Formula 1 has gained 73 million fans worldwide, 77 percent of whom are said to be between the ages of 16 and 35, making the average Formula 1 fan four years younger.
“The new seasons will once again take fans behind the scenes. You will see first-hand how the drivers and teams will compete for the championships in 2022 and 2023. “Exclusive scenes and interviews with the biggest names in sport will be shown again.”
Among the stars of the scene there are critics, but also many supporters of the series. Carlos Sainz jr.: “I still think the Netflix series is good for me and for Formula 1 as a brand. And if people want me to continue, then I will continue to be there.”
Norris himself remains cool: “It’s still exciting and good for everyone involved, as long as you don’t overdo it and portray someone as doing something they definitely didn’t do. That would go too far. And if that doesn’t happen, then everything is fine.”
Let’s continue in spring 2023 with the release of the fifth season.
