If they were making a movie about the current F1 season, who would you cast and as whom?
Robert Englund as Nikki Lauda, because of the Niki Lauda/Freddie Kreuger resemblance.
a bunch of malnourished 12 year olds as “every single driver”
Arnold Schwarzenegger as Toto Wulff. Because of the accent.
There’s a guy doing Santander bank adverts that looks and sounds just like Jenson Button. He’d be good.
And shouldn’t that be ‘whom’? 🙂
Gollum as the aesthetically challenged Bernie Ecclestone. Gollum’s obsession with ‘the precious’ – at the detriment of everything and everyone – should enable him to play this role very convincingly…
…oh, and Mr Bump as Pastor Maldonado (obviously)
Someone has to add the obvious: Britney Spears as Nico Rosberg.
Jack Nicholson as Daniel Ricciardo, for the smile obviously.
Any 6-month old as Vettel, needs to be skilled at throwing toys out of the pram.
Lewis Hamilton – Nicole Sherzinger
Nico Rosberg – Leonardo DiCaprio (cos they are the same person)
Fernando Alonso – The Puppet from the Dolmio adverts.
Philipe Massa – Latka from Taxi.
Kimji Raikonnen – Lyndsay Lohan
Romain Grosjean – Alexander the Meerkat
Dabiel Ricciardo – Mick Dundee
Sebastian Vettel – Alan Carr
Ron Denis – Stephen Hawking
Toto Wolf – Daulph Lungdren
Max Chilton – Todd Carty
David Coulthard – Minnie Driver
Frankie Boyle as the politically incorrect podium interviewer
Ali G as Lewis Hamilton.
Paddy Lowe – Mark Millar Irish bloke from DIY SOS
Mr Magoo as Pastor Maldonado
Jimmy Krankie as Bernie Ecclestone
Ed Speleers as Nico Rosberg. Seriously, Google it. The geezer’s a dead ringer for Nico.
Any young British rapper as Lewis Hamilton. He’d love that, as Lewis secretly wants to be a music industry bad boy anyway.
The bottom of a saucepan that baked beans have been burnt in could play Pastor Maldonado, for obvious reasons.
Daniel Ricciardo’s fellow countryman, Guy Pearce, could play the smiliest man in F1, subject to him cheering up a bit after his “no smiles” role in hit film The Rover.
The son from the Dolmio adverts could play Fernando Alonso. Whilst I’m at it, the dad from the same advert could play Felipe Massa’s father.
Kryten from Red Dwarf could play ex-F1 racer turned BBC pundit David Coulthard (the square head connection).
Kimi Raikonnen could be played by any male actor from a Danish police drama. All brooding looks and not a lot of dialogue. Perfect.
That’s probably enough from me now.

Beaker (Muppets) as Kimi
Come to think of it the entire cast of the Muppets as the whole of F1 with Waldorf and Stadler as Ron Dennis and Eddie Jordan
I would simply have the entire cast of the hit musical ‘Cats'(The musical tells the story of a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make what is known as “the Jellicle choice” and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life. Cats also introduced the song standard “Memory”. – i stole this bit from Wikipedia), it would be far more entertaining than the usual type of film about car racing (usually made in America and each vehicle seems to have a 35 speed gearbox), where people are always asking ‘lets see what this baby can do’. With my ‘Cats’ based F1 drama / musical film i do believe that F1 would be shown in its best light and would appeal to new audiences who would be ‘wowed’.

Ian MacDiarmid as Bernie Ecclescake.
Mr Stabby as Fernando Alonso
Vic Reeves as Stefano Domenicali (retd.)
The late Spike Milligan as Eddie Jordan

@ spd rdr Nice answer. Rumour, and high forehead with no hairline, has it, that a silver acrylic hair piece is playing Eddie Jordan’s hair.
An F1 movie?
I’d cast Eddie Jordan as a knowledgeable pundit.
David Coulthard as an interesting commentator.
Suzi Whatsername as the engaging anchor woman.
Obviously this will be a comedy.
Eddie Jordan as Eddie Jordan, seriously, who the f**k else could be such a gobshite?
Daddy Pig as Ross Brawn.
I love the suggestion of Alan Ford as Bernie Ecclestone!
I can see him now talking to Marussias team principal in Spa, when Max was almost dropped for Rossi:
“I don’t care if he’s Muhammed I’m ‘ard Ali. You can’t change drivers!”
