Formula 1 has confirmed the Netflix 'Drive to Survive' documentary series has been confirmed for a second season and will feature all 10 teams for the first time.

It was previously reported by Motorsport Week, Netflix had agreed a deal with F1 at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix for a second series.

In 2018, the series became a huge hit as it gave a unique, raw behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in the F1 paddock.

Only eight of the 10 teams chose to participate in the first series with Ferrari and Mercedes opting to focus on their respective title challenges in 2018, but both teams will now be visible in the second series.

The new series will air in 2020 and showcase all of the action from paddock across the full season from the season opener in Australia to the finale in Abu Dhabi.

“We are thrilled to once again be working with Netflix on the second series of Drive to Survive,” said Ian Holmes, Director of Media Rights at Formula 1.

“It is a truly unique series which allows fans to see the unseen side of F1, showcasing the personalities and emotions each team and driver goes through, both on and off the grid.

“Drive to Survive has enabled us to reach an entire new fanbase globally and partnering with Netflix for a second season ensures we are continuing to put fans at the heart of what we do and make the sport more open and accessible to all.”
