Apple CEO Tim Cook waves checkered flag at Formula One Grand Prix
Apple CEO Tim Cook just waved the checkered flag at the Formula One United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
Cook spent the weekend in the Grand Prix Paddock with Brad Pitt, who will star in an upcoming film for Apple TV+ about Formula One.
Pitt will play the role of a driver who comes out of retirement to compete alongside a rookie driver against the titans of the sport.
Among those creatively involved in the project include 7-time Formula 1 World Champion Sir Lewis Hamilton, Producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Top Gun: Maverick, Pirates of the Caribbean) and Director Joseph Kosinski (Top Gun: Maverick, Iron Legacy).

Throughout the weekend, Pitt was seen in the Mercedes Garage with Hamilton, as well as McLaren. He has recently met with all of the team bosses, and Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali, to discuss the project in the paddock hospitality zone and potentially asking teams to provide cars as props.
