Netflix's second season of 'Formula 1: Drive to Survive' has been one of the most widely-anticipated sports docuseries of 2020. With less than a fortnight to go, Netflix released a teaser confirming that strapping Mercedes driver and six-time World F1 champion Lewis Hamilton will appear in the high-octane series.


One of the clips in Netflix's 'What to Watch in February' had a quick 15-second video of Hamilton talking about his approach to a race while there are montages of his crash during this year's German Grand Prix.

While the British driver led the race for the early bit, he spun out and hit the barriers. It resulted in him pitting for a new front wing. Add to that his crossing of the entry bollard the wrong way and earning a five-second penalty, it was rare, but frustrating failure for Hamilton.

According to Formula 1, the bright spot of the race for Hamilton was that he was promoted to ninth following the race after the Alfa Romeos were penalized for clutch infringements. Another reason to look forward to the new season is the Ferrari-related episodes, a notable absentee in Season 1. 

Received warmly by the audience and praised for its visually-stunning appeal, the docuseries also shed light on what went on behind the scenes during the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship. Encouraged by the response it garnered, the series was renewed for a second season that documents the ongoing 2019 World Championship.

Earlier, a 30-second preview of the 'Drive to Survive' Season 2 was also featured in the episode of 'The Daily Show with Trevor Noah', where Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo shed light on his relationship with Red Bull and move to Renault.

'Formula 1: Drive to Survive' Season 2 is set to release on Netflix on February 28.
