The Matrix and John Wick star enjoyed the rain and fast cars during the qualifying race at the Silverstone Circuit and talked about his upcoming F1 documentary.
Reeves shared how the idea of the series came around:
“From the outside, a friend of mine was telling this story, and I was so struck by it. We were like, ‘Well, let’s tell that story, and it has been really great to be able to learn more from what was going on in F1 back in the day, there was just so much happening in F1”.
He added, “Just the world of F1 was extraordinary, it always is, but that year with Brawn, I think something special happened.”
While chatting with Martin Brundle, Reeves raves about Brawn GP founder:
“We are being hosted by Ross Brawn, he has been a legend and is such an amazing person, so it was really cool to meet him and spend some time with him, he offered us the chance to be here. That’s what we are going to try and do, we are going to tell that amazing, remarkable story.”
The star is part of a docu-series that documents the debut of the Brawn racing car in Formula 1 in the 2009 season. The documentary will include interviews with Ross Brawn, Rubens Barrichello, Jenson Button and other influential F1 personalities of that time.
