In a thrilling collision of high-speed wheels and pinpoint precision, Formula One drivers and PGA Tour golfers are poised for an exciting face-off next month in a match play golf tournament, all in the run-up to the much-anticipated Las Vegas Grand Prix.

Termed as "a clash of wheels and irons," as revealed in an announcement by the streaming giant on Tuesday, the roster for the November 14 event will showcase eight luminaries hailing from two hit Netflix sports series, "Formula 1: Drive to Survive" and "Full Swing." These sporting stars will converge at the prestigious Wynn Golf Club, situated in the heart of Nevada's capital.



The F1 contingent will be represented by McLaren's superstar Lando Norris, Ferrari's triumphant Singapore Grand Prix champion Carlos Sainz, alongside Williams' Alex Albon and Alpine's Pierre Gasly. These four Formula One aces will join forces with professional golfers Rickie Fowler, Max Homa, Collin Morikawa, and Justin Thomas for a unique sporting spectacle.

The competition will unfold in the form of four pairs, each comprised of a Formula One driver and a PGA Tour golfer, engaging in an eight-hole match. The top two teams will then progress to a gripping final hole showdown, where they will vie for the prestigious inaugural Netflix Cup title.

"Drive to Survive," a series that has played a pivotal role in promoting Formula One in the United States, is currently in the production stage of its highly anticipated sixth season. On the other hand, "Full Swing" is wrapping up filming for its second season, securing a dedicated following within the mainstream audience."
