We're starting to get used to it: a new year marks a new year of the hugely popular documentary series Formula 1: Pilots of Their Destiny on Netflix. Every year, the platform goes behind the scenes of the F1 world championship that has just ended. Head to the paddocks to discover the best (and worst) moments that marked the year 2023 for Formula 1 fans.

But what should we expect for this new season ? We take stock of season 6 of Formula 1 : Drivers of their destiny.

Max Verstappen absent subscribers

Whether we like it or not, Max Verstappen's talent is undeniable. The Dutch racing driver marked this 2023 season with 19 victories to his credit (out of 22), to the delight of his team, Red Bull Racing. Triple Formula 1 world champion, Max Verstappen will not appear in season 6 of Formula 1: Drivers of their destiny.

The pilot played along at first. But he quickly criticized the platform for romanticizing the championship too much and fueling rivalries that don't exist, which pushed him not to want to be interviewed in season 4. But he finally agreed to return briefly to the fifth season after discussing with Netflix. It seems that the last burst of episodes did not allow him to reconcile with the platform. So, according to the trailer and posters, Max Verstappen will not be in season 6 of Formula 1: Drivers of their destiny. A notable absence given the place of the driving ace in the Formula 1 landscape.
