Completely agree with all this. The 'lies' that are told by specifically playing radio messages at a time that aren't correct (making Max's move on Hamilton seem like it was on the last lap for example) seem like an insult to someone who knows what actually happened.
No mention of Charlie Whiting? No mention of the Canada incident? No mention of Renault dsq from Japan? No mention of Kvyat podium at Germany despite all he's been through? No mention of the Ferrari engine debate raging on? I know obviously they filmed certain teams at certain points but still feels like certain things could have made it in in some shape or form, especially over 10 episodes.
And as you said, lots of 'plots' that never materialise into any proper substance except for Albon and Gasly.
Overall very disappointed with the direction of the series. Just seems to cater to the more uneducated fan who only cares about Ricciardo, Verstappen and the Haas mess etc without really caring much for the sport itself.
The series is not designed from the technical side, it was already clear on season 1, it is design to attract other kind of audience that it is not already following F1. I see it as a good reminder of what it was the season towards the new season and also catch with some great shots, like the POV pilots cameras which had great detail when pilots reacting and are just passengers in accidents. They are aware of the angle they heading of as the best of the whole season is the 2 sec where Kyviat mentions Netflix is avoiding him, it is a inside joke of the production team ( Which would have been a great addition to the Gasly, Albon drama and make it a bit more interesting)
Formula 1 is technical. The series does not have to dwell on every single detail, they could have spent an episode explaining a bit about the cars (talking a bit about aerodynamics and the like, a short interview with Newey, perhaps) and an episode about a race where strategy was key.
If the series is to attract new viewers, then it also needs to explain these things, otherwise people may think all cars are the same, and all tires/strategy concept.
Why are "inside jokes" going out to the public? - Then its not a joke, it silly.
