Speaking with Formule1.nl about his thoughts on the new film and whether he's a fan of Pitt's films, the Dutchman said: “Yes, so many. Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and so on, those roles stick with me.
“I like films anyway and Brad Pitt is of course a super actor.
“Before the US Grand Prix in Austin, I saw a few clips from the new film. They were shown during the drivers’ meeting with an explanation of how they had filmed it all.
“Nice to see, but it doesn’t really interest me that much. I don’t need to see a film of my own sport.
“This film is of course a made-up story and everything is always over-dramatised, you have to love that. I personally don’t have that much with that.”
