McLaren-Honda did not have a great 2017 F1 season, only managing 9th place in the constructor's championship. GRAND PRIX Driver, a four-episode miniseries coming to Amazon Prime Video, takes an inside look at McLaren's 2017 struggles. Amazon released a trailer for the series today, and announced that it's premiering February 9th.

This was a particularly interesting year for McLaren's F1 efforts. It was the first for Zak Brown, who replaced long-running McLaren boss Ron Dennis, and the rookie season for Jenson Button's replacement, Stoffel Vandoorne. It was also a trying year for the team's lead driver, Fernando Alonso, who spent much of the year angry about the team's reliability struggles.

Amazon says GRAND PRIX Driver provides "unprecedented access" to what goes on at McLaren. Brown says he "can’t remember a Formula 1 operation revealing as much as we have."

All four-episodes will be free to stream for Amazon Prime members starting February 9th. And, you can watch the trailer below.
