Two-time champion Max Verstappen told Complex: “In the US, Netflix, in general, is very big. To get a bit more of an insight into Formula One was incredibly important, and I think it brought a lot more younger fans.”

Red Bull’s reserve driver Daniel Ricciardo also said: “It’s not about the fame. It’s about sharing the sport I’ve done my whole life and my passion with a larger audience and then recognizing that this is a sport and these are athletes and getting that respect as well. That makes me really happy.”
