‘It’s constant warfare’ – Lewis Hamilton’s epic F1 title fight with Max Verstappen shown off in Drive to Survive trailer

LEWIS HAMILTON and Max Verstappen’s epic Formula One title fight is at the forefront of Drive to Survive’s Season Four trailer.

The ‘cut-throat’ sport ended in controversial fashion last season with Verstappen clinching the title on the final lap in Abu Dhabi.

Hamilton and Verstappen’s epic title fight will star in Season Four

Hamilton described F1’s last season as ‘constant warfare’


Verstappen clinched his first world title on the final lap of the season in Abu Dhabi

Mercedes and Red Bull were under considerable amounts of pressure

Race director Michael Masi let a number of lapped cars between Verstappen and seven-time champion Hamilton overtake the safety car following Nicholas Latifi’s crash.

The decision set up a grand stand finish on the final lap and Verstappen, who had fresh tyres, won the sprint to the title.

Masi has since been sacked by the FIA following an investigation.

And after last season’s drama, Drive to Survive is one of the most highly anticipated shows set to drop a new season on Netflix this year.

The trailer focusses on Hamilton and Verstappen‘s epic battle and their clashes at Monza, Silverstone and the season finale.

Hamilton said: “It’s constant warfare.”

The Brit will look to claim a record breaking eighth title this season, but this time he’ll have a new team-mate in the pits.

George Russell replaced Finn Valtteri Bottas to complete an all-Brit Mercedes line-up.

And Hamilton is hoping there are some ‘non-biased stewards’ this year.

He said: “We need to make sure we get non-biased stewards.

“Race drivers, some are very, very good friends with certain individuals, some travel with certain individuals and tend to take more of a keen liking to some of them.

“I think people who have no bias and are super central when it comes to making decisions.”
