Getting bytes of a webpage from selenium

I am trying to scrape a webpage with a pdf.

With request, I used the following code to get the bytes and save it with open()
Code:
  pdf_response = requests.get(pdf_url)
    
    with open("sample.pdf", 'wb') as f:
        f.write(pdf_response.content)
        f.close
And it works just fine,

However on the below webpage I am using selenium but could not get the bytes from response object to use in the above code,

Code:
#This does not return a byte object as requests
driver = webdriver.Chrome()
driver.get(base)

content = driver.page_source.encode('utf-8').strip()
link to pdf (this has captcha that I solve with 2captcha)

Current response that I recieve

I can get PDF using only requests

Only problem: I use pillow to generate image with full code and display it, and I have to manually recognize this code. But if you have some method to recognize it automatically then it is not problem.
Code:
import requests
import lxml.html
from PIL import Image
import io

headers = {
    'User-Agent': 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:80.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/80.0',
}

# --- create Session ---

s = requests.Session()
s.headers.update(headers)

# --- load main page ---

url = 'https://www.sedar.com/GetFile.do?lang=EN&docClass=8&issuerNo=00028264&issuerType=03&projectNo=03079934&docId=4755532'  # JSON

r = s.get(url)

# --- get images ---

soup = lxml.html.fromstring(r.text)

image_urls = soup.xpath('//img/@src')

# --- generate one image ---

full_image = Image.new('RGB', (40*5, 50))

for i, url in enumerate(image_urls):
    #print(url)
    r = s.get('https://www.sedar.com/' + url)
    
    image = Image.open(io.BytesIO(r.content))
    
    full_image.paste(image, (40*i, 0))

# --- ask for code --- 

full_image.show()

code = input('code> ')

#print('code:', code)

# --- get PDF ---

r = s.post('https://www.sedar.com/CheckCode.do', data={'code': code})

if r.headers['Content-Type'] != 'application/pdf':
    print('It is not PDF file')
else:
    with open('output.pdf', 'wb') as fh:
        print('size:', fh.write(r.content))
