Netflix is home to some of the most amazing reality series. And for the racing enthusiasts, Netflix’s F1 Drive To Survive tops the list. The fourth season of the series will be released on Netflix in March 2022. Since then, fans of the series have been waiting for F1 Drive To Survive Season 5.
The documentary series explores everything that goes on behind the scenes during the Formula One World Championship and the races themselves. The show features current race videos and interviews with the drivers and provides a comprehensive description of the entire racing season.
F1 Drive to Survive Season 5: Renewed!
The entire fourth season of F1 Drive to Survive premiered on Netflix on March 11, 2022. Meanwhile, as we talk about the fifth season of the series, there’s a great update for fans of the show. Thanks to the show’s popularity, Netflix has officially renewed the series for not only a fifth but also a sixth season.
The announcement came via a Tweet from F1’s Twitter handle on May 5, 2022. Meanwhile, there are no updates on the release date of the show’s fifth season. But we can expect F1 Drive to Survive Season 5 to premiere in late 2022 if there are no production delays.
Max Verstappen and Christian Horner’s Bond!
Ever since Red Bull began to dominate the Formula 1 championships, Christian Horner has been looking for a protégé. Christian’s treatment of Max can be compared to that of an overprotective father, which can be funny at times. However, the partnership seems to be paying off since Max was crowned Formula 1 champion in 2021. Moments and connections like these make the Netflix documentary series Drive to Survive one of the best.
Why is Man On Fire the best episode in the series?
The episode is much longer than the others, at 50 minutes in length, as it depicts the crash of Romain Grosjean, a Frenchman. Through a series of clips, viewers are transported back to those tense and traumatic times. It takes the driver 90 minutes to get out of the car before the flames consume him, but he does so successfully.
Crashes are rarely something fans cheer about. But this is an emotional journey that makes it the series’ most interesting offering to date. When Grosjean’s car catches fire, there is fear and stress, but also joy as he escapes unscathed. Grosjean admitted his inspiration is three-time champion Nikki Lauda, and he can face death and survive just like the 70s icon.
What fans love about the show?
Every Formula 1 spectacle should allow spectators to experience the power and sound of the vehicles. They are among the fastest cars in the world. As a result, ignoring the sound effects and montage can detract from the raw adrenaline thrill of seeing these cars in action. Drive to Survive has mastered this element.
Many Redditors note that the sound effects are one of the fascinating aspects of the show and one of the main reasons to watch it. If Drive to Survive were a movie, the racing scenes would be some of the best car chases. The sound design of this show beautifully emphasizes the immense power the drivers must be able to handle at such high speeds.
