I'm definitely still very excited about Ron Howard's new film about the 1976 F1 season. The footage in the trailer looks great. But I wish they had cast someone for James Hunt who looked less like a boy and more like a man--someone who has more edge and less pretty. Hunt was a handsome guy but when you look at him in photos, he's a wolf...that doesn't come through here.
The CGI looks good, but I sort of feel like there are a few too many "video game" angles that actually take me out of it. I wish they would have just made some simple replica cars and staged a real accident with radio control as they did in "Le Mans" in 1971. It would look better than any CGI...

After the inital knee-jerk reaction of WTF? New Jersey? I actually have settled into being very excited about the promise held in the new street circuit along the waterfront. Here's a recent video of Sebastien Vettel driving an Infiniti road car and commenting on the new circuit:
Also here is an older video simulating how the track will be in actuality. The speed and elevation changes are going to be fantastic. I think it will have a great challenge for the drivers.
