The film unfortunately hints that there was enmity between Hunt and ****, while in fact they were great friends, even sharing a flat at one time, both dedicated to what they wanted to do - race.

When Murray Walker was asked about Hunt, who he commentated with for a while, said that while Hunt was a good driver, he was the most self centred, arrogant person that he had ever had the misfortune to work with, though he did say that Hunt did have horrendous mood swings, due to either the booze, or some other problems.

But he was very entertaining to watch in action.
