APXGP up and filming at the Hungaroring

Formula 1's fictional eleventh team – APXGP – was in action on Friday and Saturday at the Hungaroring as production for the F1 film starring Brad Pitt moved on from Silverstone to Budapest.

As a loyal member of Hollywood's Screen Actors Guild, whose members are still on strike as they continue their fight against Hollywood's studi executives, Pitt has temporarily paused his involvement in the Apple Films epic.

But APXGP's stunt drivers - filling in for the two main characters played in the film by Pitt and Damson Idris - were behind the wheel and putting in the laps to capture more thrilling on-track footage.

The film's production crews are expected to also set up shop at Spa next weekend. It's uncertain however if Brad Pitt will pop over to visit the set.
