Lewis Hamilton says he hopes that the new behind-the-scenes documentary he is is allowing Apple TV+ to create about his life as Formula 1 driver has a ‘positive impact’ on wider society.

It was announced in March that the seven-time world champion had agreed a deal for Apple to produce the feature-length film, which it says will include ‘full access to Hamilton and his team, on and off the track, and an all-star cast of guest interviews.’

The documentary will produced in part by Box-to-Box productions, the same firm behind the enormously popular Formula 1-wide Drive to Survive series, which debuted in 2019 and has seen the sport’s popularity grow around the world, particularly in the United States.

Hamilton was asked whether he believed he could one day be the subject of a biopic in the style of King Richard, which recently earned Will Smith the Best Actor award at the Oscars for his portrayal of Richard Williams, father of tennis stars Venus and Serena. The Stevenage-born driver is focusing on his documentary for now, though.

‘We have this documentary that we’re working on and I think you have to just do everything at the right time,’ Hamilton was quoted as saying by Motorsportweek.com. ‘The documentary is the current focus. I think stories are there to be told. I think it’s important. I think there’s lots that can be learned.

‘For people… if you can affect and have a positive impact, if your story can have one positive impact even on one person or one family that’s could be amazing.’

  Sponsored: Can Hamilton’s F1 records ever be beaten? Back in 2006, we witnessed a momentous sporting event, without even really realising it at the time. When Michael Schumacher climbed to the top step of the podium in Shanghai, he’d achieved the seemingly impossible.Except it didn’t. Schumacher retired at the end of that season – although he would return with Mercedes for three further (rather fruitless) campaigns – having laid down the gauntlet safe in the knowledge that few, if any, would ever match, let alone topple, his records.

In addition to his work on the documentary, Hamilton said he is ‘going through a process right now of castings for another project that I have.’ Though his participation has not officially been confirmed, Hamilton has been linked with a consultancy role on an Apple production starring Brad Pitt which is reportedly based around Formula 1.

Apple is understood to have outbid various film studios in order to secure the rights to the project.

‘[Casting is] quite an interesting process to go through,’ Hamilton added. ‘So it’s quite exciting, reading up on all these different characters, people that could fit a role that the script.

‘You know, when the script’s written, and they’re writing that character, finding someone that matches that and represents that character is quite an interesting process.’

The third round of the 2022 Formula 1 season takes place at Albert Park in Melbourne, Australia on the weekend of 8 April.
