The Circle of Life continues—new year, new Formula 1 season, new Netflix Drive To Survive trailer. Usually, I wouldn't care too much about the new season's teaser because I already know what happened throughout the previous F1 championship. This time, however, there's been enough noise over the off-season—like Lewis Hamilton signing with Ferrari—that I was curious enough to give the new trailer a look. Y'know, just in case.

I wasn't disappointed. Right at the 24-second mark, Netflix shows us a brief scene where Hamilton very clearly tells Mercedes boss Toto Wolff, "You can be here for 20 more years. I can't." More specifically, the narrative starts a few seconds earlier when Red Bull boss Christian Horner is heard saying, "A driver's career has a finite amount of time to it." Wolff follows that up by saying, "We owe it to them [drivers] to provide them with a good car."

F1 doesn't allow videos containing FOM material to be embedded into blogs, so you have to click here to watch it on YouTube.
