According to Raymond Vermeulen, Verstappen will participate in the series in the next season, provided that specific agreements are upheld. According to Raymond, Max is interested in participating in the series this year. However, it makes sense for them to be curious about the plot, the nature of the narrative, and Max’s role in it. The Dutchman has asked for more authority over the show’s portrayal. He also reckoned that the show’s participation must be positive for both parties rather than simply Netflix.

Verstappen clearly stated that he didn’t enjoy some of the dramatization used to stoke up some of the sporting rivalries. Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton got into a physical quarrel on the racetrack last year. During which Red Bull and Mercedes often traded jabs and sharp insults. However, in an interview with a Dutch magazine, Max stated, “We had a good, short conversation. I know it’s very popular and good for the sport. And I don’t mind playing a part in that. But it has to be good for both sides.”
