This is Moneyball: Behind the scenes of Formula 1 - Just how important is money and sponsorship?
The new F1 season is underway and with it, the release of a ten-part documentary series on Netflix – Drive to Survive – which gives an under the bonnet look at the multi-billion pound sport. Assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost are joined by Mail Online deputy motoring editor Rob Hull, to talk about the show – and what it could do for the sport. We talk through the money needed for manufacturers to compete and how drivers also need to have heavy backing to get a seat on the fiercely competitive grid. One millionaire invested in a team and gave his son a drive – and there is a similar situation in MotoGP, is that fair? Plus as Team Sky becomes Team Ineos, we take a look at what that deal means for the future of cycling – and will its billionaire founder, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, really buy Chelsea too?
