“I don’t like that one at all”- Max Verstappen claims Drive To Survive falsely project things actually happening in Formula 1.
Max Verstappen among the most successful drivers in the current paddock has now claimed that he dislikes Netflix’s show Drive to Survive dedicated the yearly activities of Formula, which first covered the 2018 season, and then in 2019.
With the third season being filmed during the current season of Formula 1, the pandemic is surely going to provide another element of excitement in content, with the whole world getting to know how the most advanced motorsport settled into the world of a pandemic.

However, Red Bull’s Verstappen doesn’t have any good words to speak about the show, as he feels they usually say things which don’t happen that way.
”I have seen The Last Dance. I liked that one. I only find it hard to empathize if you’re not involved. Of course, you can make a series like that as beautiful as you want,” says the Dutchman,
‘Yes, I don’t like that one at all. There is quite a lot of ‘faked’. I know what conversations I’ve had with my engineers and there are just certain things in that series that I said in Australia or Austria, used for another Grand Prix to make it a bit more exciting.
I don’t think that is possible. That’s just looking for thrills,” concludes Verstappen.
Netflix extensively covered Red Bull in season 1
During the season of Drive To survive, only Red Bull among the big three agreed to be followed, as Ferrari and Mercedes didn’t permit the OTT platform to cover their season in 2018.
But seeing the immediate popularity of the show, both teams eventually joined the ship and were covered in the following season. Making the show even bigger hit, with the highlight being the disarray in Ferrari amidst the several blunders made by Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel due to team order confusions.
