Ferrari still considering Netflix and Esports

Ferrari is still reportedly considering involvement in the Formula 1 Netflix series 'Drive to Survive' as well as a potential entry into the official F1 esports championship.

Currently, only Mercedes and Ferrari opted not to participate in the first season of the Netflix show which garnered a lot of praise from fans around the world for its unprecedented access and views of teams and drivers during and away from race weekends.

On the eSports side, only Ferrari has chosen not to participate in the series' first two seasons, with every other team on the grid having their own stable of esports drivers for the championship.

Speaking during the Spanish Grand Prix weekend, Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto admitted that the team was considering its options about future involvement in both areas.

“It’s certainly an interesting programme. We were not participating last season as Ferrari. We are considering it at the moment, we have not taken our final decision, so it’s something we will do in the next few weeks.

“I think e-Sports and Netflix, both of them, are certainly great programmes, E-sport is increasing in terms of interest and certainly as Ferrari we are looking seriously into it.

“We are not yet fully committed to the programme, but it’s something where the discussions are ongoing and we will very soon make our own decision.”
