Ferrari and Mercedes could take part in second Formula One docuseries

The most iconic constructors in Formula One, Ferrari and Mercedes, have agreed to take part in the second series of the Drive to Survive documentary which will air on Netflix.

According to reports in the Monte Carlo media – via SportsPro – the two, who were notable absences for the first series, will take part in the new series which will cover the 2019 season, though neither has confirmed that this will be the case as yet.

Last year, both Mercedes and Ferrari declined to take part in the docuseries, though the Netflix programme proved a hit even without them. Evoking the stories of the drivers, teams and races, the intimate series is the latest in a trend of behind-the-scenes sports content appearing on streaming platforms.

The popularity of the format may well be enough to persuade the hitherto absent teams to take part in future Formula 1-wide media ventures.

Ferrari, meanwhile, were the only team not to create an esports team to take part in the successful Formula 1 Esports series last year, though reports this year have hinted that the Italian manufacturer’s stance on this might well have softened, too.
