Apple TV + Lewis Hamilton Documentary Coming Soon

Chances are you’ve already shuffled and burned Netflix’s latest season Drive to survive and some output from Kayo. There are also chances are you’ll be looking for more Formula 1 content following Bahrain’s thrilling season opener (just over two weeks until the next race weekend… hang in there). That’s why you’ll probably be delighted to hear that Apple TV+ recently announced the acquisition of a currently untitled feature-length documentary about seven-time world champion Sir Lewis Hamilton.

Given that the Mercedes F1 golden boy is widely regarded as one of the greatest drivers the grid has ever seen with an incredibly decorated career to match – don’t @ me, the stats speak for themselves – he doesn’t. It’s no surprise to find that Lewis Hamilton is getting his own documentary. Indeed, excluding the Drive to survive franchise, the Apple TV+ release represents the second doco on the genre to hit streaming queues in the past year after Lewis Hamilton: the winning formula (available to stream via Amazon).

According to Collider:

The film will look at the challenges he had to overcome to succeed in the sport, along with his many victories. The documentary crew was given full access to Lewis Hamilton, along with his team. It will also feature a well-known cast of guest interviews. Hamilton was also a producer for the film.

Apple TV+’s Lewis Hamilton documentary will be directed by British filmmaker Matt Kay, best known for Little Miss Sumo and Over the wall. Penni Thow has signed on to produce alongside Scott Budnick and Richard Plepler, the latter two executive producers through Eden Productions. One Community and Box To Box Films are also getting involved, with the latter producing Drive to survive.

Beyond that, not much has been revealed about what we can expect. Not the scope of the upcoming Lewis Hamilton documentary, the “well-known” cast of guest interviews, or even a release date. But rest assured, we’ll let you know as soon as we know anything.
