** James did injure his hand on a broken gear lever but the incident took place in the 1974 BRDC International Trophy race at Silverstone, not in the Japanese Grand Prix.

* ActorAllusion: Possibly coincidental, but this marks the [[Film/InglouriousBasterds second time ]] Daniel Brühl's love interest meets him, only to discover that he is famous when some exuberant young men get excited about meeting their hero. Both times, he's famous for something occurring in Italy.



* HitchhikersLeg: Marlene invokes this in order to get a ride after her car breaks down - "This ''is'' Italy, after all." Subverted because the two guys who stop turn out to be ''huge'' Team Ferrari/Niki Lauda fanboys and ignore her completely!

* HeroesGoneFishing: James is seen early on to keep budgerigars.
** Referenced by James at the end when he says to Niki, "Some of life has to be for pleasure. What's the point of having a million cups and medals and planes if you don't have any fun? How is that winning?"


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Niki pulls two of these [[spoiler:after his accident.]] After the rude British journalist offends Niki at the press conference by asking how his marriage can survive [[spoiler:as a result of his injuries]], Niki [[PrecisionFStrike insults the journalist]] and angrily walks out.
** At the final race in Fuji, Niki pulls another one after only one lap, not wanting to risk his life again because it's not safe in the puring rain.


Added DiffLines:

* SherlockScan: As seen under the AwesomeByAnalysis example, Niki pulls off one with his backside and is able to rattle off a series of mechnical problems with Marlene's car as he's driving it, such as a loose fan belt, worn rear brakes, and a front right tyre that's too soft, explaining why the car is weaving about. Shortly after, it's broken down.

Added DiffLines:

** A rather minor change in the grand scheme of things: the real life Niki has blue eyes. Presumably they were changed to brown to further the contrast between him and the also blue eyed James, or to make it easier on the naturally brown-eyed Daniel Brühl.

** James never punched any reporters but he ''did'' punch a fellow driver in F3 after a crash, and a track marshal in 1977 (after the events of the film) after his team-mate had crashed him off.

** James never punched any reporters but he ''did'' punch a fellow driver in F3 after a crash, and a track marshal in 1977 (after the events of the film) after his team-mate had crashed him off. And both those punches were more out of nerves and reflex than anger, as he was quick to apologize and see if the punchees were okay.

** Jochen Mass played himself, and can be seen walking past Niki Lauda's and James Hunt's stuntmen during the German GP scene. This led to a funny moment during the filming when the PA asked his real name when he worked on the end-of-movie credit roll, with the PA didn't believing that its Mass himself.

** Look at the finishing order of the Japanese Grand Prix. The film shows Patrick Depailler, Hunt, Regazonni, and Jacques Laffite as the drivers finishing from second to fifth respectively. Alan Jones, the actual fourth place finisher, isn't included in the list presumably because he drove for Surtees at the time, which was less known than the likes of [=McLaren=] (Hunt), Ferrari (Regazonni), Tyrrell (Depailler), and Ligier (Laffite). Especially considering that the [=McLaren=] and Ferrari are the two protagonists, Tyrrell had the six-wheeler, and Ligier was making their Grand Prix debut.
