Formula 1 is no stranger to change, and the sport is gearing up for a significant transformation in 2026. The FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) recently unveiled the regulations that will dictate the design of the next generation of F1 cars. Among those closely watching the developments is seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton, who is currently contracted to drive for Ferrari when the new rules kick in, shared his initial thoughts: “It is only 30kg, so while it is a step in the right direction, they are still heavy. I’ve spoken to some drivers who have driven the 2026 car on the simulator, and they say it is pretty slow. So we will see whether it’s actually the right direction or not.”

While acknowledging the sustainability aspects, Hamilton emphasized the need for efficiency, speed, and improved racing. He hopes the cars will be an actual step forward and enhance the overall F1 experience.

The highly anticipated F1-inspired movie, featuring Brad Pitt and produced by Lewis Hamilton, has been making waves in the motorsport and entertainment world. However, recent developments have raised questions about the film’s progress and potential challenges.

During filming at Silverstone, one of the modified F2 cars (representing F1 machines) used by the fictional APXGP team (featured in the movie) was intentionally crashed. The scene was meticulously orchestrated for the film.

Unlike typical racing movies, where real cars follow at high speeds, this approach involves filming at a slower pace and then speeding up the footage. Lewis Hamilton explained that it’s impossible to have a truck following them at 200 miles per hour, so they simulate the action.

Despite the staged crash, the movie aims for authenticity. The scenes are captured in real-time, maintaining the illusion of high-speed racing.

According to PlanetF1, the Briton cited, “You know, you can’t have a truck following filming us at 200 miles an hour, so it’s all kind of faked at a slower speed and they speed it up. But this is all real-time, real speed.”
