Verstappen denies Drive to Survive valuable footage ahead of Season 4 release – “Now they have nothing to show”

Netflix has finally released a teaser of the most highly-awaited motorsport docuseries, Drive to Surive.

Heading into its fourth season now, the popular series, which has been credited for bringing a number of new fans into the world of Formula 1, is set to release on March 11.

Not only does the show promise to give a healthy recap of a gripping 2021 campaign, it will also uncover a number of elements that took place behind-the-scenes.

The trailer of the show took fans by storm and a number of them took to Twitter to express just how excited they were now that the release is a few days away.

All those part of F1 already get to see the episodes before the general public.

Talk Sport reported that Red Bull team boss Chritisian Horner had already watched a couple of episodes and was thrilled with whatever he had seen.

“Obviously I watch it. The latest season is just coming out, and I just had a preview of the first four episodes. This season is insane because of the rivalry between Lewis and Max,” Horner said.

“It’s obviously a fly on the wall. You’ve got to remember they’re making a TV show as well. But for what it’s done for the sport, it’s phenomenal.

Max Verstappen refused to give any additional interviews

Meanwhile, Max Verstappen, who won his maiden championship last year, said he didn’t want to be associated with Drive to Survive and accused it of ‘being fake’.

“From my side as a driver, I don’t like being part of it. They faked a few rivalries which they don’t really exist. So I decided to not be a part of it and did not give any more interviews after that because then there is nothing you can show,” Verstappen said.

Although there may not be much footage of Verstappen individually, expect plenty of footage based on his fight with Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton.

The two went toe-to-toe throughout the 2021 season, making it one of the most closely-fought affairs in recent motorsport history.

The full season will be released on Netflix on 11 March.
