It’s a bloody good time to be a sports fan. In addition to the return of the ATP Tour, PGA Tour, and Formula 1 themselves for 2023, this past month, Netflix and Box To Box Films have dropped the debut seasons of Break Point, Full Swing, and now, Drive To Survive season 5 – which now since confirmed its release date will fall on February 24th, 2023 (tonight).

Thanks to the “biggest overhaul” ever experienced by F1 regulations, last year, there was a major shake-up in the grid hierarchy. The previously dominant Mercedes, along with most teams using a Mercedes-produced engine, struggled to give their drivers competitive machinery, while the likes of Haas and Scuderia Ferrari surprised on all fronts.

Despite massive improvements from the latter which positioned Charles Leclerc as a serious title contender, however, the Mattias Binotto-led outfit would ultimately squander their chance at breaking their championship-less dry streak. Should make for some pretty entertaining viewing, if you ask me.

Bonus: after boycotting Drive To Survive season 4 due to the exaggerated/manufactured drama showcased in the third instalment, Red Bull Racing’s two-time world champion Max Verstappen appears to be back in the interviewee seat, and quite happy to offer his perspective on things.

Box To Box Films’ James Gay-Rees, who produced the Academy Award-winning documentary Senna, continues as executive producer alongside Paul Martin, who produced the 2019 documentary Diego Maradona.

Once again, the Formula 1: Drive To Survive season 5 release date is February 24th, 2023 (tonight) – check out the full-length trailer above and the official Netflix synopsis below:

“Offering unprecedented access, this new season will once again take fans behind the scenes, to witness first-hand how the drivers and teams prepare to battle it out for the 2022 FIA Formula 1 World Championship. The series will offer never-before-seen footage and interviews from the sport’s biggest names.”
