If you enjoyed the Formula 1 in Melbourne, then get ready to see more of this Championship in an entirely different way. Formula 1 and Netflix have announced a season-long collaboration culminating in an original docu-series of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship, to be screened in early 2019.
This Netflix original series will be the first to truly immerse the audience inside the cockpits, the paddock and the lives of the key players in Formula 1. The series will have unparalleled and exclusive access to the world’s fastest drivers, team principals and owners, as well as Formula 1’s own management team.
Netflix has commissioned 10 episodes from the 2018 season, and the production team will film and reveal the intense fight for the heart, soul, and direction for the future of this multibillion-dollar business.
This series will be executive-produced by Academy-Award winner James Gay Rees (Senna) and Paul Martin for Box to Box Films. Sophie Todd will be the showrunner.
Bela Bajaria, Vice President of Content for Netflix had this to say, “This partnership with Formula 1 furthers our mission of working with world-class brands and production partners to produce best-in-class unscripted series. This weekend’s Australian Grand Prix is the start of an incredible season across the world.”
