Really unfortunate that they couldn't blimp it, doesn't bring anything to the show.
Everything is not suitable for children but it is an adult program. As an adult I enjoy the authenticity and don't wanna hear bleeps every time someone curses. If that is the way they speak in real life so be it. Everything can't be sugar coated but I do see value in an edited version for kids. It couldn't be that hard.

Have I got news for you. Drive to Survive is a dramatized, edited version of real events. It's not particularly authentic.

I'm very much sick of Gunther Steiner and the incessant swearing.

I realize that and didn't mean to insinuate the entire show was authentic. But you mention Gunther, if he actually swears every other word I'll take that over the alternative. I don't want some producer telling Gunther he can't swear and get a fake watered down version. If your delicate ears can't take foul language don't watch.

The story linked below credits F1’s social media, Netflix’s Drive to Survive and Esports for greatly increasing interest and growth in F1. Netflix must be doing something right bringing in a new generation of fans. Mean while NASCAR is losing the younger demographic and bleeding fans with it's white washed corporate bullshit.

I'm not religious . But I couldn't agree more ...
At that moment I was (of course) watching the race . Saw the crash and I got cold shivers and I said Grosjean is dead !!!

"BUT" !!!

Grosjean is the Phoenix of the fire !

The moment that he jumped out the sea of fire , it looked like a scene from the Terminator !
The man is a hero !!!

If there is a GOD ...It was an act of GOD !

A good friend of mine is now hooked on F1 based on this series, so I'll need to clear some weekend time and begin with S1, E1 !!

The last episode wasn't that great. Probably my least favorite one.

Or were you talking about the entire season?

Love the series. Just binged all three seasons over the past few weeks. I'm one of the new fans of F1 based on watching. I've always been intrigued by F1, but never followed. I am sucked in now though. last weeks race was the first one I ever made a point to turn on and watch and I intend to more regularly.

Mate you are welcome !

But you should tell us/me who your favorite driver is ....

In short : Who is your number 1 ?

I dont know if I have a true #1 yet. It's hard to not like and appreciate Hamilton for just how damn good he is. At the same time I like Verstappen and seeing some closer competition. From watching the series, I also like Gasly. impressive to see how much better he's become after being demoted from Red Bull. The kind of guy who takes that "loss" and rather than be discouraged, its motivated him and he's improved. I want to like Riccardo, but he came across as a very "look at me" center of attention guy. Also, stick with a team already.

Please don't go scHAM*, TOO many fair weather fans here already! Pick a young gun that will bring you years of enjoyment.

Wish I knew whether the Gasly demotion provided motivation? Or if the AlphaTauri simply suits his driving style better? I hope it made him a better driver! Gasly is very likable and I wish him a long fruitful career!
