When I saw it, i thought it's fake. Why would the english speaking commentator concentrate on the spanish duell (so much)? And that's only one example.

I really enjoyed the Leclerc and Gasly part. It's sad, touching and emotional. I really hope Leclerc can bring Ferrari to delirium!

Well, Sean Bratches is listed as executive producer... that should tell you something.

So the picture quality was great, and I did enjoy a lot of the exclusive footage. the "storylines" were for some parts almost ridiculous indeed. Or perhaps I should leave almost out.

I rate Mercedes as a team and Ferrari is obviously, Ferrari but I would appreciate it if they opened their doors to this sort of stuff. They're part of the sport and have a duty to promote it. With a smart marketing team, you can actually create interest for your own brand and sponsors too.

I would not want to participate in such ridiculous stuff, also. And I think, that stuff like that is everything else than good or even smart marketing. It's bad TV.

Nice shots, F1 cars, some background stories and frustrations / politics. Good to get in the mood for the first race

I don't know why but I can't stand that Jonathan Neale guy(looks annoying). All since that Grand Prix Driver mini series. And that joking with Grosjean, amongst all in paddock, McLaren guys mocking others....

Also as they did that story Ocon/Perez/ForceIndia, they really painted Perez as a bad guy, and Esteban as a good guy, never at fault...

All in all, I loved Steiner talk with Haas without censoring :D

I'm enjoying it so far. The producers have definitely decided who the "villians" are though...

I would like to see it extended so that there's an episode for each race if they do another season.

I just had a thought - could it be that the recent image changes of Bottas are due to his appearance in new series of the show?

i was really dissapointed about this show.
yes Günther Steiner was honest and uncensored, but the rest was to "fake" for me.

I always find it interesting how different people on here see things differently.
This guy thinks it's horrible and this other guy thinks it's fake while another thinks it's great.
I thought it was interesting.

Cyril and Christian were definitely not fake! :) I really enjoyed the show and we got to see the other side of a few folks.
