John Pollock & Wai Ting discuss Netflix’s popular sports reality series, Formula 1: Drive to Survive. With specific attention paid to Season 1 Episodes 1 to 3, they discuss their thoughts on the show largely responsible for F1’s recent rise in North American popularity.
John & Wai discuss their individual discoveries of the series despite neither having any prior interest in motorsports, its ability to transcend the confines of its unfamiliar setting to convey relatable human stories, the unique set of characters introduced including Gunther Steiner and Christian Horner, as well as the many criticisms levied at the show’s producers for their manipulation of real-life events.
This review was selected by Espresso Executive Producer, Charlie Ryczek.
