“Basically that’s the procedure of viewing[the auditions] We have recordings of them doing particular scenes, and we made it through it.
I’ve beinged in the workplace with Jerry and Joe and Brad, and we have actually been viewing them and sort of provided our inputs and what we believe.” Hamilton went on to discuss that he felt a sense of “responsibility” to guarantee that the movie’s cast varies, particularly when it concerns female representation on the planet of Formula One.
“I want to make the movie, in terms of like having diversity and representation, I want it to be as Formula 1 should be in the future – or should be now, but will be in the future. I want to see female mechanics. We would love to see a female driver. We haven’t gotten to that point just yet. But why not? Right now, we’ve still got the script. We’ve gone through quite a few different iterations of it. We’re still waiting for a new rewrite, and that’s the whole process. But I was doing that throughout Christmas. It’s exciting. I’m excited to get the next end of the script. I was talking to Brad last night about the characters that we have coming.”
