Vin Diesel’s F1 Hint Would Be Perfect For Fast & Furious 10
Vin Diesel attended the F1 Italian Grand Prix where he dropped a hint that would be perfect for Fast and Furious 10. Since the successful release of the franchise’s ninth saga installment in June of 2021, fans have speculated on the details surrounding the upcoming tenth film. Information is scarce, but it’s known that the movie, set to release in 2023, will be the first of a two-part finale to the Fast and Furious franchise. With all the hype around the upcoming film, Vin Diesel teasing information at Formula 1 caught a lot of attention.

Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto in the films, posted a video of himself amongst the cars before the start of the race, writing “The Race!! Big things coming… #FX #Italy #Leadwithlove #Toretto #Fastsaga.” He was also wearing a Fast and Furious shirt in the video with the names Toretto and O’Conner. All the mentions of the film franchise at an F1 race make it difficult for fans not to draw connections between the two and even interpret the post as a teaser.

While the Fast and Furious saga has never addressed the world of Formula 1, the highest level of motorsport racing would actually be perfect for Fast and Furious 10. The high-octane action would fit seamlessly into the aesthetic that the films have already established, and they certainly have plenty of remarkably skilled drivers who could participate. The F1 setting could even provide the ideal ending for some of the film’s main characters.
Formula 1 is an action-packed, high-speed, adrenaline-inducing spectacle. Cars often go in excess of 200 miles per hour, sometimes mere inches apart from their opponents. This sort of rapid precision driving is constantly on show in the Fast and Furious franchise with each movie featuring increasingly improbable car stunts. Most of the characters in the movies have demonstrated remarkable skills behind the wheel in all manner of stressful and chaotic situations, so it follows that, if given the chance in the future Fast and Furious 10, they would flourish on an F1 track.
Formula 1 could even be the perfect ending for some of the Fast franchise’s main characters. Both Fast and Furious 7 and F9: The Fast Saga touch on the struggle of Brian (Paul Walker) and Dom between living a safe, peaceful life, and a life that they find fulfilling as gear heads, speed demons, and adrenaline junkies. F1 could provide the perfect compromise in which the characters get their high-speed fix in a relatively safe controlled environment. It would be a particularly meaningful conclusion for Dom because it would recall memories of working with his father’s professional stock car racing team.
At the end of the day, Vin Diesel’s Fast 10 tease could mean any number of things, or even nothing, but fans of the films and of F1 can harbor hope that the two worlds will meet in the coming movie. The idea provides a huge opening for the franchise to appeal to the Formula 1 audience, and could even be perfect for one of the celebrity cameos that the films have become fond of in the form of a real F1 driver. Viewers will simply have to wait and see if the acclaimed motorsport makes an appearance in Fast and Furious 10.
