4. Grand Prix Driver
This four-part documentary follows the McLaren Formula 1 team in the 2017 pre-season testing period as drivers Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne learn the ropes behind the wheel of the new MCL32.
The drama of the show comes from the Honda engine that wasn’t only unreliable, but also horrifically underpowered. The stress is palpable, and you can feel the torture that the team is pushing through as they ready themselves for the upcoming racing. Matched with brilliant narration from Michael Douglas, this is a realistic view of F1.
With McLaren finishing second to last in the F1 Constructor’s Championship in 2017, this show definitely opens the doors to the hard work and dedication from the team, despite immovable objects stopping success.
