Drive To Survive: Responsible for the surge in F1 fans
Over the last four years, the business between Netflix and F1 has been immensely profitable. While Netflix got a new avenue to hook its viewers, the sport got a massive following at the same period, especially for the United States.
The surge in numbers hasn’t declined for both parties. Therefore, it made Netflix continue with the project considering its consistent success.
However, a few F1 fans haven’t been pleased with Netflix’s work on F1. According to them, the OTT platform has heavily exaggerated the sports events and, at times, villainized a few prominent personalities.
Max Verstappen denies participation this year
The drivers have also stated the above shortcoming of Netflix. During last season, Max Verstappen, who won the championship in 2021, told media that he wouldn’t be participating in any Drive To Survive interviews.
Because he feels that he is often shown inappropriately with other things. Though, Netflix would be highly covering his battles with Lewis Hamilton during the 2021 season.
“I understand that it needs to be done to boost the popularity in America,” Verstappen told the AP ahead of Sunday’s U.S. Grand Prix in Austin. “But from my side as a driver, I don’t like being part of it.”
“They faked a few rivalries which they don’t really exist,” he added. “So I decided to not be a part of it and did not give any more interviews after that because then there is nothing you can show.”
“I am not really a dramatic show kind of person. I just want facts and real things to happen.”
