Former IndyCar and NASCAR driver Donica Patrick says it’s too late for an American driver on the F1. Netflix has already made the game very popular in the United States. She advises Colton Herta to succeed in it.
Very important for Netflix F1
Liberty Media has been working to increase the audience in the United States since its acquisition of the game. From 2022, the second race will take place in the United States. In conversation with Motorsport.com Patrick mentions the Netflix series Drive to survive Helped to know the game well.
Among other things, she says: “It makes the game human and it gives it a storyline. It’s a great way to show what’s going on in the game.”
America needs a driver
With its own American driver, Patrick says the game in the US can really come loose: “If there was an American driver to cheer on, I think more coverage of the F1 would be done here.”
“There would be a reason to report it. It would be very helpful.”
According to Patrick, with six-time IndyCar race champion Colton Herta, that might be possible. Americans alone do not currently have the required super license points. There will be no place soon.
