Ready for the 2019 season !!! This documentary is awesome !

Fantastic, exciting. This show got me into the sport and I can't wait to see the 2019 season dramatized in season 2.

Nagyon jo! Superb!10/10

Welcome to the (in part) Ricciardo fan-show. Where are Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen in this? How is bashing some of these drivers, showing their downs, but not cheering them, showing their highs, an accurate documentary? It is not. You could argue if it is needed. You could argue if it is the aim of the show. All irrelevant. I miss the balance in this "show". It would have been fair to kick some of these drivers but also cheer them. Instead some you hardly ever see. Some are painted in a bad light and some are cheered. The relationship between Renault and Red Bull is also sometimes taken completely out of context. Don't get me wrong. I like the show and would recommend anyone to see it... but bare in mind that the creators had a very painted pair of glasses.

Excellent show for the fans of F1. If you already know some of the in&outs you will love this. It's been a long time since a camera could get this close to F1 teams. A bit stupid of Netflix to show it just one week ahead of the new season. One month ahead of the new season would make more sense.

Does the sport justice. Can't wait for more.

Knew nothing of f1....frnd recommended me and am all into this now..this is what got me into f1 and the quality of this documentary is so good..it covers everything of all teams and is a treat to watch!!

I am an huge fan of F1, I follow it since I am 2years old with my dad... This show is nice, as it give you some inside that you don't see on race day, some more personality trait of team manager and drivers, or some background story that happened during the season. But it's not for me, it's SO MUCH overly dramatic and everything is lines up to tell a story that is not exactly correct. All the effort are put in the drama, there is near nothing about racing. I love F1, so I watched it, but it's really a pain to watch

Season 1 review: As a fan that follows every news related to F1 I was sceptical that this show can provide anything of interest to me. I can happily say I was wrong. Concept of not just following the season and stories as they go along, but making episodes about different teams, rivalries and drivers really brings new perspective on the sport. it speaks volumes that the show manages to intrigue people who aren't at all interested in racing or cars. F1 fans will find it a little bit over dramatic at times, but the fact stands that it's really nicely put together quality documentary.

I know you are trying to market F1 to an American audience, but you might want to tone it down on the sound effects. The over the top fake sounds don't happen it the race… at all. When a piece of carbon fibre wing hits the ground 30 feet from the camera it dose sot make a 'thud'. Good visuals, silly sounds.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
