Global streaming platform Netflix and Formula One have partnered together for an original docuseries about the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship.

Produced by Box to Box Films, the 10-episode untitled series will take audiences inside the cars of F1 during the 2018 season and will also provide exclusive access to the world’s fastest drivers, team principals and owners, and Formula One’s management team.

This series will be executive produced by Academy Award-winner James Gay-Rees (Amy, Senna) and Paul Martin for Box to Box Films. Sophie Todd will be the showrunner.

“The agreement with Netflix serves to chronicle the fascinating story of what transpires behind the scenes during a grand prix season,” said Sean Bratches, F1 MD of commercial operations, in a statement. “This is a perspective of the sport that has yet to be unveiled to fans around the world. This series will unleash a compelling vantage point to the sport that will delight fans and serve as a catalyst to entice new fans.”

“This partnership with Formula One furthers our mission of working with world-class brands and production partners to produce best-in-class unscripted series,” added Bela Bajaria, VP of content for Netflix.

Netflix recently announced another original car-focused series for its platform. Produced by Condé Nast Entertainment and Large Eyes, Fastest Car will feature modified “sleeper” cars in a head-to-head race with one of the world’s most sought-after supercars.
