Brad Pitt attends British Grand Prix to film scenes for Apple Formula One Film
Baku, July 10, AZERTAC
Brad Pitt has appeared trackside at the British Grand Prix, where he will be filming scenes for his forthcoming Formula 1 feature film, according to Yahoo News.
The Oscar winner met fans and posed for photographs in the paddock at the Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire, England.
Pitt is working with former F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton on the film for Apple Original Films, and F1 is collaborating on the project, which means access all areas for the all-star cast and crew. CNN reports that Pitt and his co-stars will even film their own pitstop beside the famous track.
Formula 1 drivers revealed they enjoyed having Brad Pitt in their official pre-race meeting at Silverstone on Friday, with Lewis Hamilton calling it “probably the best drivers’ briefing we’ve ever had.”
And Pitt also took to the track where he was reported to have reached speeds of 150mph.
Pitt will star as a former driver returning to the sport with a fictional F1 team, alongside actor Damson Idris (Snowfall) as his teammate.
Interest in Formula One has mushroomed in recent years with much credit going to Netflix behind-the-scenes documentary series Drive to Survive. Max Verstappen is currently leading the real-life drivers’ championship.
