Verstappen gets support from Ecclestone: 'You see what's fake on Neftlix'

In preparation for the US Grand Prix, Max Verstappen was asked if he would participate in the Netflix series Drive To Survive. The series has created a lot of American fans, increasing the popularity of the sport. Verstappen, however, indicated that he would not participate in the series and is supported by former F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone, as he explains in conversation with Reuters.

"I’m a realist and I know it’s not going to be very real. So I know how these guys act and think and do, a lot of them. And when you see things that you know are completely wrong, then maybe I’d get a bit like Max and get a bit upset." Ecclestone does expect this season to have enough content for the series.

Lots of tension this season

Because, with the tension between Mercedes and Red Bull Racing, as well as the rise of McLaren, among others, there has been plenty happening this season. When asked how he views the title fight, Ecclestone is hugely positive about the season. "Up to now it’s been Lewis is going to be on pole and Lewis is going to lead from the start to the end and that’s it," he said.

"Nobody’s that excited about it. I’m keen now to watch all of practices and all the races. If you said to me ‘I’ve got to sell the house and put all the money on one of them, what would you do?’ I’d say I’d probably go and play roulette, because anything can happen," Ecclestone concluded.
