Fans of the sport will have known the film has been in development for a while, with pictures of Brad Pitt and co-star Damson Idris in their driving suits standing alongside real-life F1 drivers Carlos Sainz, Sergio Perez and the current World Champion Max Verstappen having been released prior to the teaser.

Now we have our first look at some of the on-track action, and get some insight into the dynamic between some of the characters.

Pitt and Idris play the experienced Sonny Hayes returning to the sport (alá Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher) and his rookie teammate Joshua Pearce who drive for the fictional APXGP team which has Kerry Condon's character serving as Technical Director and Javier Bardem as the team boss.

Tobias Menzies, Sarah Niles, Kim Bodnia and Samson Kayo also star in the F1 film.

In the teaser, Sonny is seen talking to his TD about how the likes of Red Bull, Mercedes, Aston Marton, Ferrari and McLaren all have the advantage on the straights, and what they need is something they can take into "combat."

Kerry Condon expresses concerns about how to make the car safe, to which Sonny replies: "Who said anything about safe?"

She is later seen on the pit wall with the APXGP team and also as part of the pit-stop crew... for some reason we're sure will be explained in the film.

We also get glimpses of some of the on-track action in the film, including some crashes which see Sonny spinning off into a gravel trap.

Some of the locations the film used include Monza, Italy in 2023 and Silverstone's British Grand Prix in 2023, with Pitt and Idris in attendance at the 2024 race shooting pick up shots for the production.

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, who won his first race in two-and-a-half years at Sivlerstone over the weekend, has been heavily involved in many aspects of the film, including scriptwriting.

The simply titled "F1" is directed by "Top Gun: Maverick's" Joseph Kosinski, and is produced by Pitt, Hamilton for his Dawn Appolo Films, Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman for Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.

"F1" is currently slated for released on June 27, 2025 with Warner Bros handling the international distribution.
