Drive to Survive Season 3| Release date & time

The series will air on Netflix on March 19, 2021 (Friday). Incidentally, it is just 9 days before the new season goes lights out in Bahrain. Hence, this acts as the perfect precursor to the upcoming season every time.

The timing for the series is not officially confirmed. So, watch out for it during the day. However, we expect the episodes to come all at once, just like last season. Hence, it will be worth the wait.

Which F1 teams & race weekends will the series cover?

As you can see, he confirmed the unfortunate news of Max Verstappen’s absence from filming. While his team, Red Bull, is extensively covered by the crew, he does not directly feature himself. Perhaps, he dislikes the melodramatic approach of the series.

Also, the crew had a reserved filming time for Mercedes at the Russian GP. Since the stewards controversially penalized Lewis Hamilton, it will be interesting to see the drama unfold in the background. Also, it should also extensively cover the season’s postponement in Australia as the crew was still present.
