“I really felt a shift in social media following of sport among American fans. I think Netflix has clearly had the biggest influence on that. As a sport, we’ve always been relatively behind closed doors. , but Netflix allowed fans in America and around the world to see the pilots’ personalities. “ Sainz adds gq.com.
However, according to the Spaniard, Ferrari did not do well in the series on Netflix. “The Ferrari season three episode isn’t that great and I was quite disappointed to watch it because Ferrari is a lot cooler, a lot bigger and a lot better than it looks now.”

They are such an amazing team and have had most of the sporting legends in the car. “ concludes the Monegasque.
