For years, Formula 1 has captivated audiences with its high-speed races, fierce rivalries, and behind-the-scenes intrigues.

Additionally, the complexities of accurately depicting the high-octane sport on the big screen were proving to be more daunting than anticipated.

The global pandemic's impact on the film industry also played a role in the project's eventual downfall. 

With production schedules disrupted and theatres facing uncertainties, studios became increasingly risk-averse, making it even harder for the F1 movie to secure the necessary funding and support to move forward.

Despite the setbacks, fans remained optimistic, eagerly awaiting any news of progress. Sources close to the production state that Brad really did enjoy the moment. 

"Brad had really enjoyed himself, and he is definitely a very loyal member of the union', says NBC News.
