Brown stresses how necessary the sequence is to the recognition of the game in America and what number of new American followers have joined watching the game in the USA since Drive to Survive.
Wolff sees worthwhile addition of Netflix
Wolff agrees together with his competitor Brown and contradicts Verstappen: “We weren’t eager initially of Netflix as a result of we wished to focus on on-track efficiency and I used to be unsuitable. It’s clearly an enormous success.”
“Sure, we’re a sport and we have to keep true to the values of the game and don’t have any gimmicks – however sport is leisure and I feel these guys have introduced us a unique approach, a brand new dimension and the suggestions that we get from followers is super – particularly right here within the US.”
