Hmmm. It does look very slick, which I guess is a good thing.
However I have my distinct reservations about the following:
1) – Portrayal of Hunt as the heroic, handsome charismatic Anglophone battling the dull boring robotic Germanic Niki Lauda
2) – That it will in some ways try to portray Lauda as a coward (the GDPA meeting scene in the trailer implies that it was a motion carried by the majority of drivers to race in Fuji when in reality there was one vote in it)
3) – That with Lauda being out of action for 2 races is swept under the carpet and that a huge fuss is made of Hunt’s DSQ in Britain.
Others may see the general theme of my comments, but I can’t help thinking that from the trailer, Hunt is going to come out a demi-god and Lauda as a somewhat lesser light. Infact it may well end with “James Hunt died young, Niki Lauda quit the sport to fly aeroplanes”….
