Pitt and Kosinski have long tried to make a racing movie. In 2013, Pitt wanted to make a movie on the book ‘Go Like Hell,’ which had Kosinski attached along with Tom Cruise. That project eventually transformed into ‘Ford v. Ferrari’ with a new actor and director combination.
Hollywood has always maintained a fascination for cars storming down the tracks. Earlier in 1998, there were reports that the Hollywood legend – Sylvester Stallone – was preparing to enter F1.
Lewis Hamilton is relaxed about the title challenge
Meanwhile, the seven-time world champion clearly stated that his 2021 championship battle with Max Verstappen does not stress him.
Recently, the British racing driver drew on his experience in the sport and said that he is sure of himself. He added that he is more confident about himself and is applying himself better on the track than ever before.
He pointed out that the Mercedes and Red Bull are battling unchartered territory. Hamilton said, “No one has ever won eight titles, team or driver, so that’s relatively fresh and new.”
