Brad Pitt’s F1 movie finally gets a teaser trailer

  • After more than a year of teasing, the F1 movie teaser trailer dropped during the British Grand Prix.
  • The movie stars Brad Pitt and Damson Idris as F1 drivers with cameos from multiple F1 bigwigs including former HAAS team principal Guenther Steiner.
  • The F1 movie arrives in cinemas on 25th June 2025.

Last year, F1 fans may have seen Brad Pitt and Damson Idris flitting around the Paddock across various races sporting the garb of an unknown F1 team. While celebs in the pits and on the the grid are nothing new, the appearance of these two wasn’t without purpose.

That purpose being a movie about the sport in which Pitt plays an F1 racer who comes out of retirement to mentor a team with a younger driver played by Idris. On Sunday, ahead of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, we finally got a first look at the film which is simply titled, F1

Unfortunately, we can’t embed the official trailer as we usually do because the FIA doesn’t like anything embedded outside of its official channels. You can watch the trailer here.

Despite being an Apple Original, F1 will be released to cinemas in “Summer 2025”. That means we’ll only get to see the film at around this time next year.

The director is none other than Joseph Kosinski who was the director for Top Gun: Maverick and Tron: Legacy. There will also be cameos from familiar faces in the F1 scene including journalist Will Buxton, former HAAS team principal Guenther Steiner, and seven-time World Driver’s Champion, Lewis Hamilton. In fact, Hamilton is working has a producer for this film through his Dawn Apollo Films company.

We also catch a glimpse of other real F1 drivers in Max Verstappen, Sergio Perez and Carlos Sainz Jr. among others.

While we suspect that some CGI has been used, it’s important to note that Pitt and Idris actually drove Formula racing cars but they seemingly aren’t F1 cars.

In an interview with Deadline, Jerry Bruckheimer said that the team behind the film “got the car” from Mercedes. However, this isn’t a real F1 car but rather an F2 car, modified by Mercedes to look like an F1 car as reported by Motorsport Magazine.

While this is mildly disappointing, we also fully understand that movie stars aren’t physically trained to handle the forces one experiences while driving an F1 car at high-speed. F2 cars are fast but as multiple drivers have said in the past, nothing prepares you for the power between the four-wheels of an F1 car.

F1 will release in cinemas on 25th June with the US only getting it two days later on 27th June. Of course, it will land on Apple TV+ at a later date given that this is an Apple Original.

We’re quite keen to see this film and how Kosinski captures the speed and drama of an F1 race. Perhaps in the movie world Ferrari and McLaren will make better strategy calls. We live in hope.
