SILVERSTONE, England (Reuters) – Defending Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen says he is now ready to work on the Netflix documentary “Formula 1: Drive for a Living” to portray the way Leeds was portrayed.
The Red Bull driver did not cooperate with the producers for the fourth season of the behind-the-scenes series released this year.
Last season covered Verstappen’s controversial and heated title race with Mercedes rival and seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton.
In March, Verstappen said he would not participate in the series and was unlikely to change his stance, but Netflix and Formula 1 confirmed two more seasons in May and the 24-year-old Dutchman said he is now more involved.
“I just sat down with them and explained how I thought about it and what I thought went wrong in the past and it was a really nice and quick conversation and we’ll try to improve from there,” he said. told reporters at the Grand Prix of Britain.
He said he would have more to say about how he was portrayed and the footage used.
“That’s all I’m asking. It’s more realistic, at least from my side.”
“Of course, I can’t control what they do to other drivers, but at least I want to be in control of what they’re putting in. That’s what we’re going to do.”
