Being a Scuderia Ferrari driver certainly means having to deal constantly with a large number of Maranello fans and Formula 1 enthusiasts. Precisely his relationship with the Ferrari fans was one of the many topics addressed by Charles Leclerc in a long interview Sportweek, the weekly information sports magazine of Italian daily newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, which you can read in full here.
“Every time I come to Maranello, outside the Ferrari factory there are always kids waiting for me. In recent years, Formula 1 has regained popularity, also thanks to Netflix. It’s nice to see a child’s eyes light up when we make a photo. A small gesture is enough, which does not cost effort, to give joy to others.” – the Monegasque driver pointed out.
In recent years, the number of fans who have become more and more interested in the world of Formula 1 has grown exponentially, especially in the United States. Partially responsible for this is certainly also the ‘Drive To Survive’ series which has allowed the public to enter more and more directly into what happens behind the scenes in the Formula 1 paddock:
“I think our sport is growing a lot also thanks to Netflix.” – the Ferrari driver added for Sportweek – “I would like to help talented young people, who don’t have the means, to emerge and make their dreams come true. However, it is a project that takes time and which I therefore see as possible only in the future.” – the Monegasque continued.

In recent days, Max Verstappen has also confirmed his presence in the fifth season of the ‘Drive To Survive’ series, probably due out at the end of February. In the past, the Dutchman had in fact decided to stay away from the Netflix world because, according to him, what was being told was not the actual reality. “I know how important it is for Formula 1 that the world champion is also present. For this we have reached an agreement”, – the comments of Max Verstappen.
