Ilman, in his recent video about the Monaco GP, said, “Checo came in via boat. He was accompanied by Netflix crew, who were following him.

“Now when they park at the particular jetty which is situated about third the way down the paddock. There’s no way for them to get in through a swipe gate. So, the security guys just open the gate for them and allow them to go in the paddock that way.”

Talking about Verstappen he said, “Max Verstappen, I don’t have any pictures. But I know he came in by boat because I saw the team photographer and marketing people along with the Netflix crew.”

The fourth season of DTS is currently being filmed as the Netflix crew is following teams and drivers across the 2021 season. It is assumed that the fourth installment will come on the streaming service next year, around March.

As seen with the previous seasons, new installments of the show mostly air a week before the pre-season testing beings. It is safe to think that this season will also have the same timeline.
