I’ve got to say it’s just great to be here: Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt, who is playing a Formula 1 (F1) driver in his next film, wore a racing outfit and walked the starting grid alongside actual F1 drivers at the British Grand Prix. Pitt, who plays a seasoned Formula One driver in the movie, was spotted with co-star Damson Idris sporting a white and black racing outfit with the logo of their fictional team, APXGP, reported People. “Welcome to the grid, APXGP..#F1,” the official Instagram account for Formula 1 wrote alongside a series of snapshots of the fictional team on the grid — with Pitt and Idris, 31, standing alongside drivers including current F1 world champion Max Verstappen and Ferarri’s Carlos Sainz. Pitt was also filmed driving on the track for the movie and admitted he was feeling a “little giddy” after the adrenaline-filled drive in front of 140,000 race fans at the Silverstone race track in Northamptonshire, around 70 miles north of London, according to People. “I’ve got to say it’s just great to be here,” Pitt told Sky Sports F1 presenter Martin Brundle after his turn in the cockpit. “We’re just having such a laugh, such a laugh, time of my life.” “Listen, it’s just all been great, I mean the vibe’s amazing, just to get to be a part of it in this way and get to tell our story, everyone has been really cool with us. All the teams have opened the doors for us.”
