If you are like the few million people who got hooked on the first and second seasons of Netflix’s Drive to Survive, and are anxiously awaiting the third, allow us to introduce another documentary based on the thrills and challenges of none other than Formula One.
Available to stream in Aus via Stan, Race To Perfection was initially released in September of last year by Sky TV in collaboration with F1 during the sport’s 70th anniversary. The documentary explored Formula 1’s evolution through a collection of exclusive interviews with drivers and businessmen, alongside rarely-seen and never-before-seen archival footage.
Check out the episode-by-episode breakdown below:
