However, Norris doesn’t have many appearances in the past seasons compared to the likes of the seven-time world champion and the 2021 world champion. Hence, fans want to see Norris more often in Drive to Survive Season 4. Furthermore, Norris, in a recent interview, talked about his appearance in the upcoming Season 4, where we might even see him playing golf.

Norris, in a recent interview with GQ, reported, “Of course, they’ve been following me around. I did a few things with them at home as well, a couple of scenes of us playing golf. I probably looked really terrible because I did some of the worst shots I’ve ever done while I was filming for it. But yeah, I hope so. I had a decent year, so I’m sure you’ll see me and the other drivers—maybe not all of them, but most of the other drivers—in it. I look forward to seeing it as well when it comes out.”
