Drive to Survive S3: Storylines We Would Love To See But May Not Get To

Netflix has made 'looking back' at the previous Formula 1 season very cool with it's F1-only show, Drive to Survive. 19th March is when Season 3 releases - a highly anticipated opening. Understandably, the current chatter is about the storylines Season 3 of Drive to Survive will showcase.

In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal are joined by FIA-accredited journalist Niharika Ghorpade. The trio discuss storylines they would love to see in Netflix's F1 documentary...but may not get to.

Typically, Netflix will focus on driver-team rivalries, hero/zero moments and other politically correct events. But could the show focus on Ferrari's 'settlement' with the FIA around their power unit saga or how Mercedes rose to Ferrari's power unit challenge.

Will the ever-honest and Netflix-star Guenther Steiner reveal the real reason behind signing Nikita Mazepin? We would also love to see how Red Bull Racing used their political clout to get Formula 1 to sign off an engine freeze from 2022. And of course, Ferrari's fair(?) treatment of Sebastian Vettel throughout the 2020 Formula 1 season. There are several such interesting & alternative events discussed in this week's episode that we would hope to see in Season 3 of Driver to Survive.
