Although not everyone approves of the series, with Redbull’s Max Verstappen tapping out of the fourth season.

Some critics say Netflix has fueled rivalries, which isn’t completely true, and accurate. 

Netflix has been warned to keep the narrative precise, truthful, and on the mark. 

Season five is currently underway, with the Grand Prix community now headed to Miami for the next race on May 9. 

“The new season will once again take fans behind the scenes, to witness first-hand how the drivers and teams prepare to battle it out for the 2022 and 2023 championships,”

“The series will offer never-before-seen footage and interviews from the sport’s biggest names.”
