Matt Damon on acting alongside his Ford V Ferrari co-star Christian Bale in this Conan interview.
The Hollywood blockbuster award-winning film, Ford V Ferrari, was released in 2019 and is based on the life of Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles, and the development of a racing car that would change America's reputation regarding the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Daytona 24 hours.
But, the story of Ford V Ferrari goes deeper than just Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles. Ferrari had the reputation of being practically unbeatable at their game of winning Le Mans, and their rivals, America's Ford, who were the lowest threat to them.
Ford needed a winning presence in motorsport because they were just not getting anywhere in the mid-1960s. Their solution? To collaborate with engineer and visionary, Carroll Shelby, to develop and built the Ford GT40.
As good as that all was, Carroll Shelby was unable to physically participate in the races as a driver due to a heart condition, and that is where British racecar driver, Ken Miles, arrives to take the reins.
