I am 3 episodes in and really like it! Someone posted earlier that they never get into Mercedes and Ferrari? If so thats disappointing. I assumed it would hit on every team at some point.

2 episodes in. Very high production value. It's beautiful to watch. Kind of an intro to F1. I really like when they show some of the team members / pit crew you don't normally see on race weekend or documentaries.

So far it's a big LIKE from me!

Agreed, and you get some great views of the tracks that I've not seen before and the venues.....2021 Monoco for my birthday......it's on the race weekend.

I watched the whole series last weekend, thought it was decent. I found it got me really excited for the 2019 season.

I can't wait to see how Leclerc and Gasly perform against their teammates. I would love to see Renault outperform Red Bull, if nothing else just to see the look on Horner's face.

I keep rooting for Grosjean, but it's difficult.

Biggest disappointment (for me) was Ocon not on the grid this year. If was talent alone, I would take Ocon over Perez, but as the show pointed out, he doesn't have the financial (Carlos Slim) backing. Just a fact of life in F1. Ocon's contract with Mercedes actually hindered him in landing a new seat.

Valtteri is on a one year deal. Wouldn't be surprising to see Ocon in his seat for 2020 or even towards the end of this season if Valtteri doesn't perform, again.

Great series, was nice to see a lot more of the challenges of inner-workings of the midfield teams!

He called it and even got the extra point for fastest lap in that opening GP! Bravo, Valtteri!! I'm very happy for him.

This series is so well made that it got my wife into F1, who couldn't care less about racing or cars in general. Loved it!
