Formula 1: Drive to Survive season 4 on Netflix: premiere date and teaser
The fourth season of Netflix. Formula 1: Race to Survive The premiere will take place on Friday, March 11. There is only one week left before the first round of the 2022 World Championship, the Bahrain Grand Prix, which will be held in Sakhir. Drive to survive which has been openly cited as the inspiration for story modes in two of Codemasters’ racing games, has been something of a surprise hit for Netflix since it premiered in 2018, and is widely credited with Formula One’s strong rise in popularity in the United States. The show has become a must for motorsport fans here and in Europe, even though it sums up the results of the previous season, the main results of which are already known. Last year’s championship was one of the most memorable and controversial in the entire 71-year history of Formula 1, and the 10-episode breakdown should be very interesting.
Expect a lot of attention on contenders Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton; their Red Bull Racing and Mercedes teams; and the respective leaders of these teams, Christian Horner and Toto Wolff. Mercedes won its eighth consecutive Constructors’ Championship, but Verstappen overtook four-time champion driver Hamilton on the last lap of the last race to claim his first world title.
Their season was marked by crashes at Silverstone and Monza; showers in Belgium and Hungary; tit-for-tat dispute over rear wing aerodynamics; and a huge fine on Verstappen just for touching Hamilton’s car in the pits. Wolf destroyed his headset when Hamilton accidentally crashed into Verstappen at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix a week before the season finale. This moment was as good an instant visual summary of the 2022 championship as any, and it’s presented in the middle of this one-minute teaser. Drive to survive fourth year.
Fans should also expect sidebar discussions of Ferrari’s new rivals, Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc; A sensational victory for Esteban Ocon at the Hungaroring, aided by a desperate defense by veteran teammate Fernando Alonso; and the rise of George Russell from Williams Racing and his promotion to Mercedes.
