(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Series: Formula 1: Drive to Survive

Where You Can Stream It: Netflix

The Pitch: A documentary series following the drivers, engineers, financiers, and team principals of Formula 1 racing as they struggle to achieve victories on and off the racetrack, complete with harrowing racing footage, seemingly unlimited access, and brutally honest interviews.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: If you’re feeling cooped up in your house, nothing will be more refreshing than watching a talented group of people driveĀ really fast. And if you feel like the news cycle is full of half-truths and questions without answers, the often unrelenting lack of bullshit from the subjects of Formula 1: Drive to Survive will be a breath of fresh air. You don’t need to care about racing at all to find yourself caring about the subjects of this series, one of the crown jewels of Netflix’s original programming.
