But as the Netflix cameras watched on, Mercedes ’ race unravelled spectacularly, with Valtteri Bottas crashing out of fourth place less than 10 laps from the end – while a Our qualifying pace has been really strong this year, but this strength could easily turn into a vulnerability on race day in Sochi .”

Wolff hoping Mercedes can avoid ‘ Netflix Curse ’ at Russian Grand Prix. Formula 1 returns to the Sochi Autodrom for the 2020 Russian Grand Prix, with Mercedes having never been bested at the race run on roads around the Winter Olympic Park.

The Formula 1 rulers of Mercedes fear the Netflix curse in Russia.

At the Grand Prix weekend in Sochi, as in the previous year at the home game in Hockenheim, the team will be accompanied by a team from the streaming provider that collects images for the “Drive to Survive” series. Team boss Toto Wolff still shudders with memories of the shooting in the preseason. "In the end, it was the worst race of the season for us," said the Austrian before the guest appearance on the Black Sea coast.

World Champion Lewis Hamilton crossed the finish line in eleventh place in the rain chaos and only got two points thanks to later disqualifications. Teammate Valtteri Bottas was eliminated. "That made for a very entertaining Netflix episode, but we hope that this time we can deliver not only great content, but also a great race," said Wolff.

Sure, Netflix won't have The Mandalorian season 2 or The Boys season 2 this year, but plenty more highlights are coming in 2020.

Netflix will once again be present in Mercedes ’ garage during the weekend in the hope of documenting the piece of history. The last time Netflix joined Mercedes for a race “Our qualifying pace has been really strong this year, but this strength could easily turn into a vulnerability on race day in Sochi .”

Mercedes gets around the moral issues of self-driving cars by deciding that–of course–drivers are more important than anyone else. Mercedes ’s von Hugo, then, thinks that the ethical problems will be outweighed by the fact that cars will be better drivers overall.

It could be a weekend for the history books. Hamilton is aiming for his 91st Grand Prix victory, which would set Michael Schumacher's record. In training, things didn't go quite smoothly for the Briton. The world championship leader had to be content with second place behind the Finn Bottas on Friday. “The car is running well, but we still have a lot of work to do for the night,” said the six-time champion.

In view of the lead over the competition, this Saturday's qualification (2 p.m. / RTL and Sky) should again be a duel between the two Mercedes drivers. "I was surprised to see this distance," said Hamilton. However, one Mercedes driver has always won in six races in Russia.

Sebastian Vettel expects no more chances for top positions in the hopelessly inferior Ferrari. "We no longer look at Mercedes, they are too far away," he said after the first training runs on the Olympic site in 2014. Even the small aerodynamics update was "not a big step," said the Hessian.
