Formula 1: Drive to Survive season 5 live stream: preview
Formula 1: Drive to Survive is back for a fifth season. The documentary provides a behind-the-scenes look at last year’s Formula 1 season, complete with analysis, background information and commentary from those involved. Season five promises the first full appearance – including in-show interviews – from Red Bull driver Max Verstappen. That’s big news, as Verstappen has previously criticized the show for making up events during the World Championships.
Verstappen is the reigning Formula 1 drivers’ champion and has won for the second year in a row. But he refused to work on the show since season one, after getting angry about how he was portrayed. He publicly criticized the show for fabricating driver rivalries and making it appear arrogant. So it’s quite a coup to get him on board.
The series covers all the main events of the 2022 Formula 1 World Championship, of which there were many. Like, for example, the ups and downs that Scuderia Ferrari experienced, or the ‘porpoise effect’ (when the airflow turns off because the car is too low on the track, causing the car to bounce up) that the Mercedes W13 suffers from. Then there was Oscar Piastri’s contract dispute and Daniel Ricciardo’s disappointing season at McLaren (during which he was publicly criticized by McLaren Racing’s CEO Zak Brown before terminating his contract with the team a year earlier by mutual consent).
So enough to cover. As with previous seasons, all 10 episodes of Formula 1: Drive to Survive season five will be released on the same day: Friday, February 24, just over a week before the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship kicks off with the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 5.
