SAM BIRD JOINS LEO DICAPRIO & ORLANDO BLOOM FOR FORMULA E FILM PREMIERE

Envision Virgin Racing’s Sam Bird joined the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Orlando Bloom on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of the new Formula E documentary film ‘And We Go Green’.

Director by Fisher Stevens and produced by DiCaprio, the film gives an exclusive behind the scenes insight into last year’s Formula E championship title race, between Jean-Eric Vergne and Sam Bird.

Bird, who took the championship fight to Vergne during season four, features prominently in the two-hour motion picture, together with the rest of the title protagonists from that season.

The red carpet event followed on from a special dinner the night before – which DiCaprio also attended – where Bird was joined by his wife Hollie Harrington-Bird.

The film is set to be released later this year.

Bird, 32, has now joined his Envision Virgin Racing team-mate Robin Frijns in Berlin for the next Formula E race, which gets underway on Saturday (25th May) at the former Tempelhof Airport.
