Max Verstappen reveals why he HATES Netflix series Drive to Survive as world champion addresses speculation over his Red Bull future

  • Max Verstappen has revealed why he hates Drive to Survive
  • The world champion says he doesn’t enjoy filming for the series
  • Daniel Ricciardo emphasizes that Verstappen has a funny side

Max Verstappen has once again focused on Netflix series Drive to Survive, revealing the one thing he ‘hates’ about taking part in the hit show.

The 26-year-old Verstappen has a bumpy relationship with the program that has shot Formula 1 into the stratosphere among the American public. It previously claimed that it manufactures storylines and is ‘over the top’.

And during a joint appearance at The Project ahead of this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix, Verstappen’s former Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo was asked what the reigning world champion is really like.

“Max is funny,” said Ricciardo. “I’m not saying it’s not obvious that he is, but . . .”

Verstappen then interrupted him, where he swiped at Drive to Survive.

‘You don’t see me much on Drive to Survive, that’s why I don’t enjoy doing it. You probably don’t get the good side of me because it’s just an interview, I’m just sitting in a dark room and I hate that.

‘And there are always questions about F1-related things that I don’t like to talk about.

“They put a microphone in front of you and you have to talk about the season, just having a casual interaction, having fun.

‘I play padel with Daniel, which is a lot of fun. Besides, some things are just private, right? People don’t need to know what we do and what we say.’

Ricciardo added: “Apart from the serious interviews, he surprisingly has a very funny sense of humor.”

Verstappen’s start to the new season did not go smoothly, despite winning the first two races.

His Red Bull team is embroiled in Christian Horner’s ‘sex texts’ scandal, while the world champion has threatened to leave the team if influential figure Helmut Marko leaves.

With a seat available at Mercedes ahead of Lewis Hamilton’s move to Ferrari in 2025, Verstappen is inevitably linked to the Silver Arrows.

When asked whether he sees a world in which he does not race for Red Bull, the Dutchman says: ‘Once I stop driving! Good question. I don’t really think about it too much, I know I have a contract until 2028, so I think that says enough.’
