The upcoming Apple TV+ documentary about seven-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton and his team could have a “positive impact”, the driver has suggested.

Apple announced on March 9 that it had secured the rights to a Lewis Hamilton documentary for Apple TV+. Speaking of the documentary, Hamilton believes the biopic can offer lessons to those who watch it.

“We have this documentary that we are working on and I think you just have to do everything at the right time,” Hamilton told MotorSportWeek. “The documentary is the current focus. I think stories are there to be told. I think it’s important. I think there’s a lot to learn.”

The F1 driver continued to have high hopes for the film, adding: “For people, if you can influence and make a positive impact, if your story can have one positive impact, even on one person or one family, that could be great.”

The unnamed documentary features full access to the champion and his team, including footage both on and off the track, along with guest interviews. Hamilton is producing the documentary with Penni Throw, Box to Box Films and One Community, with Richard Plepler and Scott Budnick serving as executive producers, and Matt Kay directing.

It may not be the only project on Apple TV+ that Hamilton is involved in, as it is linked to another Formula 1 movie starring Brad Pitt. The director did not confirm his involvement, but admitted that he is “currently going through a process of castings for another project I have.”

On that project, Hamilton says it’s “a pretty interesting process to go through,” finding the right actors for the role. “You know, when the script is written and they write that character, it’s a really interesting process to find someone who fits that character and represents that character,” he said.
