Apple lands documentary about Sir Lewis Hamilton, 7x F1 world champ

Apple TV+ announced…that it has landed a new feature documentary about the groundbreaking life and career of seven-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton, who has broken both records and barriers to become one of the greatest Formula One drivers in history. The documentary will feature full access to Hamilton and his team, on and off the track, and an all-star cast of guest interviews.

Hamilton has blazed an uncharted trail professionally, socially and culturally, and transformed the sport on a global scale. Coming from a working-class family, Lewis succeeded in a sport where the odds were stacked against him but where his talent shone through, allowing him to dominate the sport for over a decade. Hamilton is currently the only Black driver to race in the Formula One series. He embraced what made him different and his rise to the top of his career has made him fiercely committed to using his platform to influence positive change for future generations…

Apple recently made history earning six Academy Award nominations across major categories, including Best Picture, for “CODA,” the first-ever motion picture starring a predominantly Deaf cast in leading roles to receive this distinction, along with multiple Oscar nominations for “The Tragedy of Macbeth,” including Best Actor for star Denzel Washington, one of the most nominated actors ever and the most nominated Black man in history.

This is an automagic Win-Win for a gearhead like me…who also spent my lifetime dedicated to the Civil Rights Movement as the core value within progressive politics. Being at Lime rock Park for Opening Day in April, 1957 is a memory I treasure. More important to character and purpose in life was my first sit-in down in Virginia in 1961.

    Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton was knocked out of the opening phase of Saturday’s qualifying for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
    The Briton, whose once-dominant Mercedes team have been wrong-footed by the sport’s radical new rules, could manage no better than the 16th quickest time, missing out on progressing into the second part of the session by 0.087 seconds.
    He was 1.4 seconds off the fastest lap set by Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and 0.6 seconds slower than new team mate George Russell, who was fourth. https://www.espn.com/f1/story/_/id/33601956/lewis-hamilton-knocked-first-qualifying-session-saudi-arabia
    The 20 qualifying drivers came close to boycotting the race in the early hours of Saturday morning after a missile attack on an oil depot 10 kilometers east of the circuit raised concerns about security at the venue. https://www.espn.com/f1/story/_/id/33607569/saudi-arabia-sports-minister-cancel-race-there-was-genuine-threat
