Verstappen does not want to explain: 'Would recommend reading the article'

Max Verstappen will no longer participate in the Netflix documentary 'Drive to Survive'. The Red Bull Racing driver thinks the series is 'fake' and not an accurate reflection of reality. At the press conference in the United States, several drivers were asked for their opinion on the subject.

Räikkönen reveals that he hasn't seen the episode, yet he has a tip for the Netflix directors. "I told them, 'The less of me, the better,'" he says. Fernando Alonso doesn't really have an opinion on Drive to Survive either: "I'm wachting Amazon, sorry!"

McLaren drivers bigger fan

Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, both employed by McLaren do think the Netflix production scores a pass, unlike Verstappen. "I think it's okay. I think we have a slightly different take on the series," said Ricciardo, who is complemented by his British teammate. "For me it's OK".

Verstappen was also asked briefly on Thursday if he wanted to clarify his earlier interview. The world championship leader wasn't too keen on that: "I explained. I would recommend people to read the article."
