At the microphone of DeadlineJerry Bruckheimer explained that one of the first things Lewis Hamilton mentioned when he launched this project was that no film had ever managed to capture the feeling of being in a Formula 1 car.

To be as close to reality as possible, the team built a vehicle that looks like a Formula 1 car but is in fact a modification of a Formula 2 car.

“We worked closely with Mercedes, their design team and their aerodynamicists, to develop a custom body that looks like the latest generation of Formula 1 cars. They are built specifically for this film. They also incorporate 15 camera mounts, including recorders, batteries and transmitters. They are made to shoot films, but they are fundamentally racing cars.“, Kosinski explained.

And the innovation doesn't stop there, because the cameras used to film the drivers up close have been specially developed by Sony so as not to be too heavy and slow down the cars.

Overall, the intention of Kosinski and the producers is to make viewing F1 as immersive as possible, which is why the film also features real pilots. Formula 1 and incorporates real racing events.

“For the die-hard fans, who really know these races, they're going to be inside a race and watch, from our characters' perspective, events that really happened unfold.”Bruckheimer said. “It's a fun magic trick to perform, I think people will enjoy it.”

See you on June 25, 2025 to see Brad Pitt play the pilots in F1.
