Brilliant series, especially for non F1 fans
9 April 2020 | by manuel_medeirosSee all my reviews

I went into this show with some degree of scepticism because I was told that nor Ferrar nor Mercedes would be featured in season 1. For the less knowledgeable, this sounded too me as doing a series about La Liga without Barcelona and Real Madrid. I couldn't be more wrong.

There is a vast amount of interesting narratives, stories, relationships and rivalries outside the two contenders. Enough to make me sit through season 1 in 3 days.

I believe this show makes for a very entertaining watch for any (even remote) sports fans, because it has many unexpected turns, emotionally draining episodes and plenty of feel good stories. You do get emotionally attached to a few drivers, and find yourself rooting for or against them on any given episode.

In my view, this show aims to get people excited about F1, much more so than entertain those who already die hard fans already. Namely because:

1) Die hard fans know the outcomes of the races going in (the show reflects on the previous season, it's not live) and therefore there's less surprise or emotion. For me it was an absolute thrill to see the end of some of those grand prixs

2) the show is not focus on the technical side of racing. It spends much more time on the relationships, the rivalries, the thrifts - overall the human side of the sport. Which is what makes it so engaging

It definitely made me hungrier to watch the 2020 season (whenever it can be underway) and has nurtured a bond that makes me cheer for some drivers and boo the others

F1: Drive to Survive is an absolute genius move by Liberty Media, F1 and Netflix to market Formula 1 to new audiences. I think they have nailed that objective completely.

As far as converting audiences to a particular sport - I have seen nothing better. F1 Drive to Survive is an emotional and thrilling ride in one of the most challenging sports in the world. And it's truly worth it
