Season 2 of Netflix’s stunning Formula 1: Drive to Survive launches on Netflix from February 28.

Building on the success of Season 1, which opened up the pinnacle of motorsport to a whole new audience, Season 2 will see the cameras go behind the scenes once again for the 2019 F1 season.
I'm a Hamilton fan but hoping for a change up in 2020.

Leclerc?

Leclerc is looking to be a monster. I think 2021 is gonna be the real interesting season when all the changes come into place but still looking forward to what 2020 has to offer.

If it's not Hamilton, it's going to be Verstappen. He has matured a ton and an Adrien Newey designed car with a strong, dependable engine is a very hard combination to beat.

I think that Vettel is going to be a distant 4th at best this year.

I agree Leclerc is fixed to step up. However the one year Mercedes DAS steering feature might give them more advantages than ever.



Then again seems like a really bumpy track or hopping the FIA berms could cause some unexpected inputs.

It's possible that the DAS steering could get outlawed by the FIA.

FIA has known about it for a while now. Mercedes isn't worried about it. Which might mean Ferrari are planning to utilize it.

Well they already banned it for 2021 and onward. They seemed to be ok with it for this year from what I read. They left some holes in the rulebook for 2021 for teams to do some kind of active steering adjustment, just not user manipulated as how I read it. As somebody who has built chassis' and carried NASCAR rulebook in back pocket, I love me some "creative engineering".

From my understanding (admittedly not anywhere near complete) of the FIA rules, if an innovation gives a team too big of an advantage, the FIA reserves the right to ban it.

7 of the 10 F1 teams are threatening to sue the FIA over a secret settlement with Ferrari regarding last years power unit....

Could Ferrari have cheated...? Say it ain’t so....

The other teams, below Ferrari, actually have a valid gripe since the splitting of the spoils at the end of the season is determined by the amount of points that they accumulated throughout the season. If Ferrari cheated and gained points from that cheating, they took money out of the pockets of their rivals.

This potentially becomes a lawsuit with $$$$$$ involved.

Ferrari has always gotten preferential treatment from the FIA, they used to get an extra share of the spoils for years, which assured that they'd have a bigger budget to continue gaining an advantage.
