If Ron Howard decided to tackle F1 again
He should cover Prost vs. Senna.
  • Pro: Probably THE greatest rivalry in F1, storied enough to catch people's attention, wouldn't be subject to the bullshit rule that disqualified Senna from an Oscar nod. Not to mention there'd be a way to link it to this movie: Lauda's final teammate was Prost.
  • Con: Senna exists, so not necessarily a need for a Prost vs. Senna movie, Howard probably wouldn't want to do it without Prost's approval, and Prost has been reluctant to talk about Senna since the latter's death, Senna's family is very protective of his name, and of course the Downer Ending. It's also a really similar story of rivalry between a Technician Versus Performer. (Then again most Formula One rivalries come down to Technician Versus Performer. Besides, what would you rather have, another rivalry or a movie about the Schumacher era?)

James is an amnesiac Thor.
Well, someone had to suggest it.

Fine, then Niki Lauda is a Time Lord.
Because someone had to suggest it. His TARDIS has a working chameleon circuit and is that plane at the end. His name is The Technician.
