As you may know, Netflix does have a show series with Formula 1. Drive To Survive has been a massive hit around the world, and it has opened up many eyes to the world of Formula 1. When Netflix came out with Drive to Survive it helped get more people into Formula 1 sport, especially more Americans. We all know that there have been many movies about Formula 1 and motorsport. Such as Rush, Senna, Grand Prix, Williams, or movies such as Ford V Ferrari or Le Mans. The motorsport world has been used many times for people's entertainment, regardless of them being good or bad films.

Recently, it was announced that Netflix is working on something new. And since Netflix saw how big of a hit Drive To Survive was, they have decided to make a new Netflix film. Besides, it will star no other than Robert De Niro and Star Wars actor John Boyega, a great cast indeed. Despite that, it will be an American F1 driver. Interesting...

The film will be directed by Gerard McMurray. And what is the movie about you ask? Well, Gerard McMurray explained that it is...

โ€œthe story of a young man from Detroit who becomes an international racing star in the world of Formula 1 under the tutelage of his mentor with old mob ties.โ€

Gerard McMurray

Although, the plot twist occurs when the Formula 1 driver is forced to become a getaway driver to save his family. Godfather mixed with Formula 1? A Formula 1 thriller? Whatever it is, it definitely sounds... captivating.

In my honest opinion, it sounds a bit corny. However, the release date hasn't come out yet, the trailer obviously has not come out yet, and we haven't seen the movie. So let us not judge before we all see it.

Clearly, we are all waiting for Drive To Survive: Season 3 to be released. Sadly, there has been no official release date nor a trailer announced for the third season. F1 fans have to be patient and wait. Even though this might be the best season yet, there are still a few months to go until we get the 2020 recap on Netflix.

I think we all can say we're more excited for Drive To Survive: Season 3, than this Formula 1 "thriller". Unless Kimi makes an appearance in the movie.

Hopefully, Robert will bring his sensational acting skills to good use in this film...
