Ever since Netflix released the first season of Formula :1 Drive to Survive in 2019, fans of formula one racing have been going crazy. The third season of the docuseries was released on Netflix in March 2021. Now, as we get ready for the release of Formula 1: Drive To Survive Season 4, here are all the details about the fourth season.
What Is Formula 1: Drive To Survive About?
All behind-the-scenes activities from the paddock and the ten teams on the grid are demonstrated in this documentary series. Last fans saw Verstappen claiming his first Formula One Driver World Championship by defeating Lewis Hamilton on the penultimate lap of the season finale in Abu Dhabi in 2021. It was perhaps one of the greatest title battles in history.
The stakes were considerably higher in the second season. Yes, it was about the 2019 Formula One World Championship. Still, it also featured teams such as Ferrari and Mercedes, which did not allow Netflix to follow their internal functioning during the first season. We get to meet Guenther Steiner, the Haas F1 CEO, the Pierre Gasly drama, and Charles Leclerc’s ascension.
Fans next met with Lewis Hamilton, who won his sixth driver’s title in 2019 while also leading his Mercedes team to a sixth consecutive championship. It also emphasized the German Grand Prix, which was named Race Of The Decade. Daniel Ricciardo’s arrival at Renault and the death of Formula Two racer Anthoine Hubert were two more headlines back then. Now, in Formula 1: Drive To Survive Season 4, viewers will be able to revisit some of the teams’ other remarkable achievements from 2021 at the same time.

What To Expect From Formula 1: Drive To Survive Season 4?
On the Australian Grand Prix podcast, Gay-Rees stated that the show is in a good situation since its team has gained some confidence in Formula One circles. That allows its access that will lead to greater shows in the future. Aside from that, Gay-Rees stated there’s a sense of excitement involved in filming since they have to estimate which way the plot will go and try to be there at the proper time.
If that’s the case, squad bosses like Christian Horner of Red Bull, Toto Wolff of Mercedes, Zak Brown of McLaren, and Lawrence Stroll of Aston Martin might appear on the reality show. Fans of “Formula 1: Drive to Survive” will recognize these very easily.
Gay-Rees even hinted at a possible fifth season, claiming that new Formula One rules, which are set to take effect in 2022 after a delay, might alter the automobiles and make matters extra challenging. “It’s going to be really punchy,” he said. Further adding, “so you know, we’d want to keep continuing with it.” But first, we need to see if Season 4 is on the way.
