Great day for Lewis Hamilton at the office today grabbing pole position in Monte Carlo. First pole position for Hamilton in 2019 have him celebrating over the radio with his teammates @mercedesamgf1. On the other hand, it definitely wasn’t our best day over at team Scuderia with a disappointing day for our boy Charles on his home track. Anything is possible on race day tomorrow however!!
Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl and director Ron Howard, a trio of huge names helms this Formula 1 story. It's the story of the 1976 Formula One season, James Hunt versus Niki Lauda, two completely different personalities fight for the title. Niki Lauda suffers an almost life ending accident at the German GP but out of pure determination and against doctors advice he makes a surprise return weeks later to take on Hunt for the title.
More than just a Formula 1 movie, this one is for everyone, a tale of two men from wildly different backgrounds and lifestyles who both overcome their difficulties for one goal. It's thrilling and incredibly well told, very true to life and an almost exact recreation of the events of 1976. This movie will give you great insight into a story you really ought to see.
Both Bruhl and Hemsworth are very accurate depictions of Lauda and Hunt. Some added drama for the sake of the movie but Lauda gave this film his blessing at the time, while Hunt who tragically passed away in the 90s would have been proud.
They used replicas of the Ferrari and McLaren and the other cars of the time and filmed them really racing around thenl circuits to give it realism.
The only complaints are the added drama, which does work for the sake of the film, it's nothing outrageous and ill placed, it's just not what happened in real life.
This isn't just a Formula 1 fans movie, this is a great movie in general, give it a shot.
Farewell Niki. 1949 - 2019 🇦🇹 9.5/10
