Drive to Survive's latest instalment is likely to be its most dramatic yet following the controversial end to last year's title race, which saw Max Verstappen claim the Drivers' Championship for the first time in his career.
During the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi, race director Michael Masi controversially removed the safety car and the cars both Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton had overlapped, leaving a straight race against the two who were level on points.
Verstappen's Red Bull car had the fresher tyres and promptly overtook Hamilton on the final lap to win the race. The decision has overshadowed the race and is still under investigation to this day.
As per the Daily Mail, the latest series will shown never-seen-before footage of that dramatic final race in the Middle East and after the news that the new series isn't far away, fans have been left feeling extremely excited, whilst also not forgetting the major incident.
One fan tweeted: "Sure, we all know how it ends...but the fun is watching how it reached that climax! Really looking forward to this."
