John Pollock & Wai Ting are joined by Chris Elliot to discuss Netflix’s Formula 1: Drive to Survive Season 5, Episodes 7 & 8.
Episode 7 focuses on Sergio “Checo” Pérez and the incessant pressures of keeping Red Bull’s second seat as he faces contract renegotiations ahead of the illustrious Monaco GP. We discuss the controversy surrounding his qualifying crash and what may have led Netflix to omit its further coverage.
Episode 8 puts Alpha Tauri’s Yuki Tsunoda in focus. With bromantic partner Pierre Gasly moving to Alpine at the end of the season, Tsunoda is forced to face criticisms of his maturity when the forthcoming Nyck de Vries threatens to take the team’s top spot.
Plus, we look ahead to this weekend’s Saudi Arabian GP including its controversies and safety concerns stemming from last year’s missile strike.
