  • Let me just say this. They way people wrere fricking out about Bottas shows you're not Scandinavian XD I paid it no attention and then I see the internet going crazy ahahahahah

  • So the Grosjean crash was done the way it was meant, the SJW Brits can go and jump.

  • Grosjean crash episode was magnificent and Emmy worthy. A crash can happen quickly but feel like a lifetime and that anguish as a viewer pales in comparison to the intense danger of that moment. Plus one of the strongest points of the show is playing like a melodrama at times, so it’s not to be unexpected.

  • The thing that annoyed me most was the fake radio clips during testing of the engineers telling the drivers to push and the drivers then celebrating a “fast” lap....in testing, DTS is utter garbage

  • From season 1 I thought it was way too manipulative, creating drama out of nothing and portraying relationships the wrong way. Great way of bringing in new fans with false narratives?? No! I think F1 is interesting enough. They don't do it with soccer, do they?? Al of us "old" fans didn't need DTS to understand and appreciate F1 and become fans? In the future DTS will be watched by people who don't know anymore what was wrong or right and then the stories will go down in history as the truth. It's falsifying history and it would have been way cooler if they had just showed the behind stuff as it is in a fun and cool way without distorting the truth. Missed opportunity!

  • Thanks for the heads up. If there's something I really hate, it's all those tv shows and documentaries that are dramatized. Not going to watch this.

  • This season was so bad considering we had one of the best seasons ever. They didn't even mention the fuck up in the Tuscan grand prix, one of F1's biggest fuck ups how did they not clear up what exactly all the drivers thought about what happen. I thought this season was boring considering how exciting this season was.

  • 7:00 You'd be right about the split. I disagree with you, I think the crash was actually really well done. I think if you didn't know the outcome before the show for some reason it might put you on the edge of your seat, but even having known the outcome prior to watching it, that feeling that people get when it happens before they know if he's alive... that was I think fairly accurately portrayed, and not really overdramatised at all.

  • No mention of Lewis and how they just glazed over his record breaking achievements or the polical/social climate...right. lol F1 youtube is so obvious with their obvious bias against Lewis, a bloody legend. I hate it here.

  • I really think this is the worst one of the bunch. Even more so than season 2. Maybe it's just because of how well I know the 2020 season itself.

    Tibet SönmezTibet SönmezUukausi sitten
  • I agree the crash in episode 9 was wayyyyy stretched, but I do think it did a great job of capturing the feeling of watching it live. So newcomers who didn't witness it unfold live or are unaware of the event entirely might get a similar sense of dread.

  • What was the thing about team radio on episode 9?

    Juan InchauspeJuan InchauspeUukausi sitten
  • After watching the season, I feel like the way Grosjean's crash was depicted was not necessarily to up the drama, but to maybe make it feel more like how it felt live? It still took a few minutes to see him safe and alive in the moment but it felt like ages, and it must have felt even longer for everyone there in person and most of all his family. Overall though I did find this season harder to watch than the first two because even though the previous seasons weren't in chronological order, I felt like they did a less clumsy job of stitching the storylines together whereas in this season some of it felt pretty disjointed and unresolved.

  • Episode 9 was awesome, they built it up perfectly! The intro gives you chills, and the nervewrecking moment shortly after the crash, they could do this because he is alive and well, and dont forget the ending with Perez going from last place to first! Horner giving him a seat for 2021! On par with ep 6 imo! Especially for someone that doesnt follow complete F1

  • Having now seeen S3, agree with a lot here. Hulkenback should have been shown more, especially considering the emphasis put on Checo at points of the season... just another way to show how good of a driver he is. And I assume Williams said no to being in S3 all together, it's the only reason I can think of for not putting a focus on George and that there was no mention of Williams no longer being run by a WIlliams...

  • I don't think the Romain episode is overdramatized at all. For one, it captures the how it felt watching it live. Those two minutes really felt that dragged out, and the show conveys it to my wife, a layman, way better than I can, and she loves the show but doesn't watch F1 live. Secondly, as you said, they worked that drama into such a wholesome ending, and an avenue to really praise the sport and people around that saved him. I loved the show for what they did that episode. It puts Grosjean in such a positive light at the end of his career as well.

  • Is overdramatize the word 🤔 it was dramatic as hell. It's gold for a show like this. You either respectfully leave it out or go all the way. They certainly milked it.

  • Leave it to dominant Mercedes team to have the weirdest segments. Bottas "balls out" sauna scene was just plain creepy and final episode showing George Floyd knee on neck is a pity plea from poor Lewis Hamilton. Season 3 was just a mishmash of personalities and no cohesive team competition compared to season 1. Disappointing.

  • Missed three things in the whole drive to survive season 3. 1) After covid, pre season start there were lots of virtual gps played but there was no mention in the series. 2) Nico hulkenberg had stepped in twice but there was no mention about him. 3) Very less mention about George Russell's Mercedes adventure. He dominated Bottas. So it again fuels the debate of Car vs Driver.

  • I found the DTS3 pretty bad. We went from seeing the strategies, career moments, things of the teams to trying to make everything more dramatic, very important issues that happened in 2020 were not touched ... if it is true that recording was complicated by the issue of the corona virus but they could try to show what the year 2021 really was like. Besides that they edited horrible, adding sounds that are not of the moment like for example in Styria to the clash of Vettel and Leclerc they added the voice of Brazil 2019 .. without sense the truth

  • Bottas gets a full episode, but Hamilton and his record breaking season gets 2 minutes in the final episode. And the fight against racism gets 1 minute of Hamilton talking about it. It just pisses me off how Netflix wastes time with Haas and renault, but the actually remarkable things of the season or the important things like social justice they leave it out.

  • I've watched it with neutrals that definitely enjoyed it, but not enough to watch the real thing. I'm definitely too close to ignore the re-writing of history, the cringy team radio and commentary that's added after the fact. Although i will almost certainly keep watching if only to listen to the secret convos and swearing.....i'm so basic

  • I didn't like the way they kept cutting away from Grojeans crash before he got out to make out like he wasn't going to make it. And think the way they made out that there was an intense, bitter rivalry between Lando and Carlos was pretty naff and fake. Overall it was better than season 2 but season 1 still was the best for giving more insight as to what goes on behind the scenes - they need to focus less on the slo-mo shots and dramatic music and more on the stories... not sure I'll bother for season 4 as they're kind of just repeating themselves at this point.

Where is mercedes demolishing themselves during pitstop? Turkish GP rain and tire management of Hamilton ? First podium of Vettel ? Where the hell is HULKENBERG ? Netflix really need to do better job or give us 5-6 more episodes

    • Yes, it was okay. In my opinion they could have made an episode about the history of Formula 1 or something like that, because there is F1 for a very long time. There was also missing an episode about George at Sakhir. There are so many more things they could put in the series. It is not bad, but they could do better.😬
