Netflix Has Renewed Drive To Survive For Seasons 5 And 6

Get your engines revving because Netflix has announced they will be renewing the hit docuseries Formula 1: Drive To Survive for a fifth and sixth season.

The popular streaming service confirmed ahead of the Miami Grand Prix that the series would be returning for another two instalments, which will see drivers compete during the championships over the next two years, according to the Formula 1 website.

A statement issued by Netflix read: "The series has grown in popularity over time, with Season 4 attracting the biggest audience to date and breaking into the weekly Top 10 in 56 countries.


"Offering unprecedented access, the new season will once again take fans behind the scenes to witness first-hand how the drivers and teams prepare to battle it out for the 2022 and 2023 championships.

"The series will offer never-before-seen footage and interviews from the sport's biggest names."

Ooooft we can’t wait.

The series was first released in 2019 and became an instant hit as it gave everyone an insight into the drivers and races of the Formula One World Championship.


The series has also been credited with bringing a whole new generation of fans into the world of Formula One while showcasing some of the sport’s most integral drivers.

Former world champion Mario Andretti said that Formula 1: Drive To Survive also sparked an interest in his hometown as well as an interest in race car driving.

“It was always said that F1 was the Olympics of motor racing and it was well received, always respected in every way but it’s picked up a new fervour now,” he told The Guardian.


“Especially the way it was exposed in Drive to Survive. That’s rekindled something but also brought on some new interest which is good, it’s fabulous for the sport.”

Executive producer Paul Martin revealed that the revenue for the sport has also increased drastically since the docuseries aired and ticket sales have skyrocketed. 

He said: “When we went to the Austin GP it really hit home.

“Attendance had gone up and tickets sold out in record time and people in hotels and at the track just kept referencing the show. 


“When a woman from Texas came up and told me her favourite driver was Esteban Ocon and I thought, ‘Wow, this show has really broken through’”.

No word yet when the next two seasons will be released, but if you want to binge the previous seasons, you can catch them on Netflix.
