Mercedes not joining Verstappen’s Netflix snub

Mercedes has distanced itself from title rival Max Verstappen’s decision to snub the forthcoming edition of the popular Netflix series Drive to Survive. Too much about the documentary series, which is being partly credited for the huge crowds seen in Austin for the US GP last weekend, is “fake”. Earlier, Mercedes was also reluctant to participate in the initial Drive to Survive series – but team boss Toto Wolff now admits he was wrong. However, he doesn’t completely disagree with 24-year-old championship leader Verstappen’s view that too much about the way the series is put together is “fake”. “I loved being in an hour-long traffic jam to get on the circuit,” Wolff smiled as he recalled the huge crowds in Austin.
