Here are 7 things that happened in last year's F1 season that have to be covered in the next run of Netflix's F1 TV series Drive To Survive!
Netflix's Drive To Survive TV series has been nothing shy of an ultra success. Since the first season that aired in March of 2019, the Drive To Survive series has been responsible for giving exclusive insight into what the world of F1 is all about behind the scenes. It not only gives fans a closer look as to what happens behind closed doors but also has allowed thousands of new fans an introduction to what the sport of F1 is all about as well.
Last year's F1 season was one of the greats and will go down in history as one of the most intense and close rivalries of all time. Many people are waiting in anticipation to see what the next season of the popular F1 Netflix TV show Drive To Survive will bring.
The guys over at the YouTube channel: WTF1 launched a video of the 7 things that have to be covered in the next season of Drive To Survive that will be all about last year's F1 season (2021). ANd we have to say that we completely agree with them.
The rivalry between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton will without a doubt be covered in some length anyway, but there was so much other action happening between other teams and drivers as well.
Here are the 7 things that Netflix has to feature in the next upcoming Drive To Survive season:
- Estaban Ocon's Win
The 2021 Hungarian F1 Gran Prix was totally and utterly filled with carnage! It included Lewis Hamilton restarting the race on his own. Massive defence moves by Fernando Alonso, and finally, Estaban Ocon's breathtaking victory as he flys past the chequered flag first!
- The Haas Teammates Not Getting Along.
Just because the word "teammates" are used in sports, doesn't necessarily they are buddies. That was the case in 2021 between the two Haas F1 drivers, Mick Schumacher and Nakita Mazepin with Mick Schumacher saying that their relationship is beyond repair.
- George Russell Moves To Mercedes AMG
Now, for one of the biggest gasping moments of last year's F1 season, that of the former British Williams driver, George Russell moving over to Mercedes AMG. This, however, shouldn't have come as such as surprise as it was one of the biggest and long-lasting rumours of last year. It wasn't until the end of the Dutch Grand Prix that it was officially confirmed that George Russell will be replacing Lewis Hamilton's teammate, Valtteri Bottas in the 2022 F1 season.
- Valtteri Bottas' Fastest Lap In The Dutch Grand Prix.
During the 2021 Dutch Grand Prix, Hamilton managed to secure the fastest lap but that was soon taken by his teammate Valtteri Bottas, largely to the disappointment of the Team Principal Toto Wolff, before Lewis Hamilton gained it back sometime later. This still started a huge talking point.
- McLaren's Massive Monza Victory
McLaren hasn't seen a victory like this since 2012. Netflix will without a doubt have to showcase the incredible 1 - 2 win for McLaren whereby Danial Ricciardo secured first place with his McLaren teammate, Lando Norris, finishing in a brilliant second place.
- Fernando Alonso's Podium In Qatar.
With 2021 being the year Fernando returned to F1, with it being a terrible start due to his cycling accident whereby he was hit by a motorist while having an outride started his year. Fernando quickly jumped back upon his horse and managed to gain a podium position for Alpine Racing at the Qatar Grand Prix last year.
- Ferrari's Comeback.
Ferrari had their worst year in F1 in 40 years in 2020 which was ultimately an embarrassment to the team that has been the longest in the sport. However, Carlos Sainz and his teammate Charles Leclerc managed to get a few podium positions and secure 3rd place for the constructor's Championship for 2021.
