According to Motorsport, The CEO of Formula One Group, Stefano Domenicali, expressed concerns regarding this film showing things that might be “quite invasive.” Domenicali was speaking to the investors, saying, “When we collaborated with Netflix for Drive To Survive, everybody in F1 said that’s not a place for us.”

The Italian manager also mentioned that they need to be careful in terms of production so that it does not get too invasive. However, the Netflix show has been very successful. And it displayed the power of social media tools as well. The drivers from different teams are joining the show to help grow the popularity of the sport. The Brad Pitt-Lewis Hamilton is made under the production house of the seven-time champion, Dawn Apollo Films. Jerry Bruckheimer is the producer, and Joseph Kosinski will be the director.
