Lighting Mac Queen and Hot wheels have lighted up our childhoods. With time our toys grew bigger and some even went on to play for real with them. And the way forward was sporting cars racing on the track at lightning speed.
If you are wondering what are we talking about, of course, it’s Formula 1. From Mercedes to BMW all compete here and see only one religion, race! It is the fastest who triumphs. Formula 1, the most famous racing tournament in sports cars has created a craze worldwide especially among the young adult generation for the past few years.
Keeping that in mind, Netflix did not miss a chance to let people closely have a look behind the scenes and at the lives of all the people who are on the other side of the wheel. An interesting documentary-series with 8 to 10 episodes each lasting 30 to 50 minutes, Formula 1:Drive to Survive Season 4 is set to hit Netflix later this month.
Here is everything we know about Formula 1:Drive to Survive Season 4.
Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 4 Teaser
The teaser streamed on the official YouTube channel of Netflix a week ago and is super exciting.
Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 4 Release Date
Formula 1:Drive to Survive Season 4 is all set to release on Netflix 0n Friday, March 11, 2022, as stated by Formula1.
Which races will be included in Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 4?
The Netflix crew was present for all 22 races of the 2021 season, which was the longest in F1 history, stretching from March to mid-December. The new season starts with pre-season testing in Bahrain, and comes to a close with the dramatic and controversial end to the year in Abu Dhabi as the championship was settled. While Ferrari and Mercedes were not a part of the series, they have been included since Season 3 for the fanbase the show has achieved.
Success stories of Formula 1:Drive to Survive Season 4
Season 3 of Drive to Survive ranked #1 in the world on Netflix shortly after its release last year, and is understood to have outperformed the debut season – something that is typically unheard of for a Netflix show. One of the most successful markets for Drive to Survive has been the United States, where it has helped fuel a significant rise in interest. F1 reported an attendance of 400,00 fans for last year’s United States Grand Prix, marking a significant rise that was driven in part by Drive to Survive.
Max Verstappen not being a part of Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 4
Max Verstappen is one of the renowned players and wants to be off the show this time as he, reportedly, discloses that the details in the show are more entertainment oriented than detail one and thus many rivalries are faked to give the on screen appeal. This makes the game lose its ethics and hence he has withdrawn from the same, if reports are to be believed.
Will there be Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 5?
While no official announcement exists, any new season will come only after a season of Championship has come to an end. For now the Bahrain Championship is the pivot behind the show. A newer championship would bombard the fans with newer players, and more back stories to look into.
With all sorts of controversy surrounding this gutsy documentary series, one can only wait to see how much fact meets fiction and if or not the thirst of our fans to see their favorite racers unplugged and unwind gets fulfilled or not.
