Max Verstappen was an interesting character from the beginning of his career. He always had a different attitude, which is what he was remembered for. The Dutchman refused to be a part of Netflix's 'Drive To Survive', considering that he is not impressed by various American productions or famous personalities.
In an interview with TIME, the F1 champion emphasized that he has no intention of hanging out with famous movie stars. “I have no desire to be able to hang out with famous movie stars. ”- Verstappen said, as quoted by crash.net!
Verstappen didn't have much to comment on the Netflix series, given that his focus is on winning and other F1-related matters. It is clear from this how committed Max is to his work. What he is interested in is winning a new championship!
“I don’t need to watch it because I know what happens. I’m also not very interested to hear from our neighbors how they saw their season. I know my side of the story. For me, that’s enough”.
- he continued.
Max Verstappen: Sport comes first
Verstappen isn't the type to promote himself like that. He thinks he shines brightest through his wins and great performances. The race in America showed how much he's not into all the glitz and glamour.
“I would just keep in mind that the actual sport comes first, instead of the show. That, for me, is very important, and that eventually will also decide if I stay or not”. Helmut Marko also believes that it is not the best for Max Verstappen to be exposed to a large extent.
He wants to have drivers whose primary focus will be on racing. “He doesn’t like doing it. I want to have a relaxed and happy Max. Maybe some less sponsors”.
