Race boss credits Netflix for F1 popularity

That is the view of Canadian GP Francois Dumontier, who popped over from Montreal to Miami at the weekend to check out F1’s newest promoter. “Next year, there will be four races – Miami, Montreal, Austin and Las Vegas. Dumontier credits the Netflix effect, even though the dramatic documentary series Drive to Survive is criticised by many drivers and fans. Dumontier says he is delighted that, after a long wait for covid, Montreal will soon be reaping the benefit of F1’s new popularity surge. “It’s F1, it’s our sport that has grown the most in the world,” he said. “We are living in fabulous times, and Montreal will benefit from it like the others.”.
