Are you having Formula One withdrawals yet? It has been 60 days since we last saw live Formula One action. Today Netflix announced that they would be giving us the opportunity to relive the 2023 season. Netflix announce that Formula One: Drive to Survive season 6 will be released on February 23rd, 2024. This release will coincide with the end of pre season testing at Bahrain International Circuit.

James Gay-Rees, Executive Producer of Drive To Survive 

Gay-Rees had the following words in an exclusive interview with “Genuinely, we are enormously proud to be a part of it [referring to the Drive to Survive series],” he said. “There’s also a lot of satisfaction at being first with these things, and I think that it kind of does feel like the first main access show – certainly out of the UK anyway – that has had this profound effect.

We’ve all had the statistics about the changing, younger demographic, and it’s tough out there for anybody, for any big organization, to hold its ground given the amount of choices that are out there for the consumer.

Bringing such a big new audience to a sport – which obviously was deserved, it just needed somebody to open it up – is massively satisfying.

The fact that it wasn’t a fluke, the fact that it’s grown [with every season]… It’s a real honor and we love it. It’s a very difficult show to make, but we love the process, we love the world. Long may it continue!”
