Since its official renewal for two additional seasons in early 2022, racing fans have been eager for more information on Netflix's popular docuseries Formula 1: Drive to Survive. Following its premiere in 2019, the series has debuted four complete seasons detailing behind-the-scenes details of the high-class international racing division.

Now, Netflix has revealed the first trailer of Drive to Survive's fifth season. Set to hit the streaming platform on February 24, the new 42-second teaser warns of significant changes in the sport and signals that "2022 represents a new dawn for Formula 1." Here we see large-scale rule changes introduced by Formula 1 take shape and how these have affected drivers and car manufacturers alike.
