Which F1 star will get their own documentary?

Similar to any series, Drive to Survive fans have their favourite characters, with RB driver Daniel Ricciardo and former Haas team principal Guenther Steiner, proving popular with viewers.

Ricciardo will produce a comedy series set in the world of F1 titled Downforce, which has been described as Entourage meets F1.

He follows the likes of Lewis Hamilton who is also a producer on Brad Pitt’s F1 movie, brought on board to provide an accurate insight into the sport, and is also reported to have a cameo.

Now another F1 star is making their debut in the entertainment sphere, with Red Bull’s Sergio Perez the centre of a new docu-series for Disney.

The series will be shown exclusively in Latin America and is called ¡No te rindas, cabr*n!", which means "Don't give up, bas**rd (or other, saltier language depending on your translation)", slated for an autumn release date.

Its title is apt considering the difficulties Perez has faced going up against Max Verstappen at Red Bull.

The 34-year-old has been consistently beaten by the three-time world champion, and has even slipped behind rival teams in recent races - making a Q1 exit in Monaco.

However, Red Bull remain confident that Perez can deliver for the team, renewing his contract until 2026.

"I am delighted to be staying here to continue our journey together and contribute to this team's great history for two more years,” Perez said following the announcement.

"Being part of the team is an immense challenge, and one I love. We have a great challenge this year and I have full trust in the whole team that the future is bright here and I am excited to be part of it."
