Racing driver Colton Herta left fans in hysterics with his tweet regarding Brad Pitt. F1 will head to the US for the first of three visits, starting with the Miami GP taking place on Sunday.

The race emanating from the Hard Rock Stadium is set to bring the glitz, glamour and a host of celebrities are due to make an appearance. While it is unclear whether Pitt will be at this particular race, he is set to drive an F1 car on the grid at Silverstone.

IndyCar star Herta, took to Twitter to make fun of the fact that the actor will drive on an F1 grid before him. “Brad Pitt got a super license before me. Tough,” he tweeted, which has received over 50,000 likes.

Pitt’s latest project is being created by Apple Studios and seven-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton is assisting with the writing of the script. Also part of the project are Joseph Kosinski, director of Top Gun: Maverick, and leading producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

The storyline of the film will see a driver, played by Pitt, reverse his retirement to race alongside a rookie. Expanding on his role in the production Hamilton said: “I don’t know absolutely every single plan with all the things we’ll be doing in the paddock, I’m more focused on making sure the script is where it needs to be.

“That’s where all the time is currently, going through the script. We’ve got a really great and diverse cast. Joe’s focus is to make us as embedded in this sport as possible. For me it’s to make sure it’s authentic, and that all of you and racing fans see its authenticity and say ‘this is believable’, and have a view of racing from a different perspective than you might see on TV.

“I’m spending a lot of time right now helping Joe and the team get the script right, it’s an amazing process and I’m really enjoying it.”

For such a huge country, it is amazing that we finally have three races here.

“The difficult thing with Formula One is that you usually visit a country once a year. But the growth has been huge and it is such a big market for the sport.” The Brit is currently fourth in the F1 drivers standings, 12 points behind former teammate Fernando Alonso in third and will look to apply some pressure on hthe Aston Martin driver this weekend.
