Brad Pitt’s F1 Movie to Feature Real Formula 1 Cars Courtesy of Mercedes

Brad Pitt will be driving a real F1 car designed by Mercedes featuring some of the most advanced camera technology available....

Brad Pitt’s Formula 1 movie has been in production for over a year and as stated before, it’s directed by Joseph Kosinski of Top Gun: Maverick fame. As such, there is a heavy focus on the machinery these films are based around, it was fighter jets before, now it’s race cars, and realism is a big focus. How does the machine operate in reality? The best way to show this is by using the actual machine in your movie rather than CGI, and according to F1 pundit Will Buxton, that’s exactly what they’re doing.

The upcoming film stars Pitt as a retired racer who is brought back to the track for one last time and the production team will be capturing the reality of F1 by filming every race from the British Grand Prix onwards. 

Pitt will be driving a version of an F1 car designed by Mercedes which will feature the “smallest moveable 6k camera ever designed” to really absorb the viewer in the cockpit. The cockpit which Pitt and his co-stars will actually drive. Lewis Hamilton is in “daily communication” with the team and “advising on storyline and script to ensure it’s the most accurate racing film ever made.” 

Hamilton spoke about the project saying, “I have such high hopes for it. I know we’re going to make the best racing movie that’s ever existed, both visually, and we’re going to work on making sure we pull on the heartstrings of all those fans.”
