A release date has been set for the Brad Pitt-starrer Formula 1 movie. Lewis Hamilton, a seven-time F1 world champion, is producing the movie as well.

“The film’s production, which started in 2023, will wrap up at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in December, as well as at several other races, including this year’s British Grand Prix.”

Hamilton has contributed significantly to the script in order to make the movie as true to life as possible. When asked about his role in the sport last year, he stated, “We want everyone to love it and to really feel that we encapsulate what the essence of this sport is all about.” “I’m not sure if this would have been feasible under the previous administration ten years ago.

They might not have considered this to be a significant development for the sport. However, this will surpass the impressive work and impact of the Netflix series that we have already witnessed.”

“Lewis was really intent that we respect the sport and show it for what it is,” Pitt, meanwhile, stated to Sky Sports. I had no idea what driving entailed. They are all such incredible athletes, and I have the utmost respect for them all.”
