About 'Formula 1: Drive to Survive'
Here is everything you need to know about Season 4 of Drive to Survive.
The Netflix team was on hand for all 22 races of the 2021 Formula One season, which ran from March to mid-December and was the longest in the sport's history. The new season begins with pre-season testing in Bahrain and concludes with the year's dramatic and contentious conclusion in Abu Dhabi, where the championship was decided.
After declaring last year that he did not want to participate in the series, world champion Max Verstappen will not appear in Season 4 of Drive to Survive. 'I don't like being a part of it from my side as a driver,' Verstappen said in an interview with the Associated Press last year. 'They made up a couple of rivalries that don't exist.' Because the series covers Verstappen's championship year, the majority of interviews related to his accomplishment are performed with Red Bull team principal Christian Horner.
The series has been a smash hit. Season 3 of Drive to Survive debuted at #1 on Netflix in the world immediately after its release last year, and is thought to have outperformed the first season, which is unusual for a Netflix show.
The United States has been one of the most successful areas for Drive to Survive, where it has helped to spark a major increase in interest. Last year's United States Grand Prix drew 400,00 spectators, a considerable increase fueled in part by Drive to Survive.
