Formula 1 has released the trailer for the new Formula 1 docu-series that will come to Netflix on March 8th. 

The series will have ten parts and has been named 'Formula 1: Drive to Survive'. The series has been produced by those who made the critically acclaimed 'Senna' and 'Amy' documentaries.

The series will focus on the events from the 2018 world championship season, starting at the Australian Grand Prix and concluding in Abu Dhabi. It will also provide a view into the world of Formula 1 away from the track, as it aims to "provide unique insight" into the teams and key F1 personnel.

"As we move into a new generation of Formula 1 we are thrilled to announce our new docu-series 'Formula 1: Drive to Survive'," said Ian Holmes, Director of Media Rights at Formula 1.

"This truly unique series embodies the sport and helps us to showcase and unearth the untold stories on and off the track. Partnering with Netflix to create an original series puts us at the forefront of becoming a media and entertainment brand and attracting new
fans to the sport."

Paul Martin of Box to Box Films added: "Netflix was the perfect platform on which to tell the inside story of this incredible sport. F1 has long been a world of colourful characters and super-sized egos, thrills and drama, victory and tragedy, but until now that world has been largely hidden and secretive.

"'Formula 1: Drive to Survive' takes the viewers right into the heart of this world and shows what it is like to live, work and race within the world’s fastest sport."
