“The impact has been very profound. And this is almost more so as a result of non-fans being exposed to the sport,” Ian Holmes, Formula 1’s director of media rights and executive producer on “Drive to Survive,” told TheWrap in 2021 about the series’ effect on the international circuit’s growing popularity in the U.S.

“Formula 1: Drive to Survive “is executive produced by James Gay-Rees and Paul Martin for Box to Box Films.

The live races air on ESPN, which renewed their rights through 2025 in October.
