US F1 race among circuits to host Brad Pitt film crew in 2024

Seven races on the Formula 1 calendar have been tabbed to host the film crew for Brad Pitt's upcoming Lewis Hamilton-produced movie, including the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

Three grands prix - the British, Belgian and Hungarian - will host 'large scale' filming, while smaller shoots are planned for at least four other tracks.

As many as 400 people will be working behind the scenes at the big three shoots, with many set to work from off-site facilities.

Many of the key actors including Brad Pitt, Damson Idris and Kerry Condon were affected by the SAG strikes – delaying filming for the film.
