Verstappen: 'Drive to survive' doesn't show the real me

Max Verstappen is displeased with how he has been portrayed in the second season of the Netflix Formula 1 'Drive to Survive' documentary.

Speaking with YouTuber Anas Bukhash in his #ABTalks series, Verstappen commented on the way that has been portrayed in the new series of 'Drive to Survive'.

"I don’t think it was the real me," said Verstappen. "The problem is they will always position you in a way they want.

"It’s a series. Whatever you say they will try to make you look reckless, or try to make you into whatever fits the story of the series.

"The series is all about excitement and it needs to be exciting, so they position you and whatever fits to the episode.

"You’re interviewed and they use the words also under different circumstances so it never really fits.

"I never really liked that. I prefer to just have a one-on-one interview with the person who would like to know me."

Verstappen feels that his words have been incorrectly used in the series and that his apparent lack of emotion makes him come across as an arrogant person, something that he says is far from the truth.

“I like to be just myself," added the Red Bull driver. "I speak when I need to speak, and if I don’t have anything to say then I won’t say anything.

"I don’t think I show a lot of emotion. I’m just easy going, but I’m also very determined to win.

“I try to do everything for it because my life, it’s my passion. Sometimes it might seem arrogant or whatever, but I’m there to win.

“Everybody’s different, everybody works differently. But for me, that seems to work the best."
