Brad Pitt Suits Up for Formula One Movie at British Grand Prix

Brad Pitt is a bona fide Formula One fan!

The actor attended the British Grand Prix for the second year in a row on Thursday, taking in the races from the paddock at the Silverstone Circuit in Northampton, England.

Pitt was properly attired for the appearance in a white racing suit and black vest. He donned sunglasses as he smiled and waved to onlookers.

It appears that Pitt’s attendance at the race is related to his upcoming F1 movie, as the actor was also seen walking through a door labeled “Cast Green Room.”

Pitt and Damson Idris were photographed filming scenes at last year’s British Grand Prix for the upcoming film, which is being produced in collaboration with F1 and shot in and around actual Grand Prix weekends, giving fans a firsthand look at all the action.

In the high-octane feature, Pitt stars as Sonny Hayes — according to set pics showing his character’s garage — a retired driver who returns to F1 racing in order to help train a young upcoming star, played by Idris.

The Apple Studios film — which reunites Top Gun: Maverick‘s director Joseph Kosinski, writer Ehren Kruger and producer Jerry Bruckheimer —  doesn’t have an official title yet, but a deleted tweet from the ESPN F1 account hinted last year that it might be called Apex.

A major F1 fan in real life, Pitt was previously spotted enjoying himself at the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, in October 2022, where he chatted with Formula One star driver Lewis Hamilton and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
