Formula 1Tomorrow, Netflix will serve Formula 1 fans once again with a new season of the popular documentary series Drive to Survive. The new season promises fireworks with the exciting takeover of last year’s World Championship between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, although the latter is no longer on the Netflix series.
He’s definitely not a fan of “Drive to Survive”, and Max Verstappen has never made that secret. He also only plays a small role in season four, which will appear on Netflix tomorrow. Of course we see him play, and often appear on and off the tarmac, on his way to his first World Championship.
But when drivers like Daniel Ricciardo, George Russell, Yuki Tsunoda and Esteban Ocon are photographed extensively, including in their home environment, it’s all kept short and succinct about Verstappen. Team bosses Christian Horner and Toto Wolff more or less tell the story of the season, not Verstappen himself.
The Dutchman previously thanked him for further collaboration with Netflix and will continue to do so in the future. In his opinion, many stories are consciously created by documentary filmmakers. “I’m on the ground. Better to stick with the facts, it doesn’t have to be exaggerated too much for me,” Verstappen explained again during his test days in Bahrain. “It’s just not my thing. I’ll definitely watch documentaries on Netflix. I’ll see how he’s on top this time. And then I get on with my life.”
