The Theatricalisation Of Formula One

I wrote The Theatricalisation Of Formula One after having some thoughts on the selective editing of Drive to Survive. I published this in Zagreb, Croatia.

The Netflix show Drive to Survive is the theatricalisation of Formula One. I'm glad that Verstappen has refused to participate in its latest season. I don't watch the show. I've been watching Formula One since I was a kid. I don't need Netflix to turn it into the motorsport equivalent of the Kardashians for me. I doubt that Drive to Survive would've been able to exist if Formula One was still under the stewardship of Bernie Ecclestone.
