Keanu Reeves is a longtime F1 fan and attended his first British Grand Prix last week.
Reeves spoke about how much he loved the experience, even the awful British weather.
The "Speed" and "John Wick" actor went into great detail about everything that excites him about the sport.
Keanu Reeves is a huge fan of Formula One racing and was stoked when he got a chance to express his love for the sport.
Reeves attended the British Grand Prix as a guest of Aston Martin, his first F1 race at the historic Silverstone Circuit. After qualifying, he stopped to chat with F1 TV, and he couldn't stop gushing right from the start.
The interviewer for F1 TV starts by apologizing for the rain during qualifying. A befuddled Reeves explained that no apology was needed while holding the biggest smile on his face as he answers.
"Apologize?!" Reeves said. "That was fantastic, getting to see drivers drive, going at those incredible speeds, on this historic, amazing circuit ... It's my first time here. You've got to have Silverstone in rain. It's awesome."
After describing the experience of being in the garage as "absolutely thrilling," Reeves was asked what keeps him coming back to F1 races. While he expressed how much he loves the small details of the sport, ultimately, it's about the cars.
"I love the cars," Reeves said. "The cars are awesome. I like the cars."

Reeves is also clearly a fan of the Netflix docuseries, "Drive to Survive."
"I've only seen [the F1 world] from the outside, but Formula One is like the pinnacle in so many things, the innovation, the racing," Reeves said. "And then the personalities, the drama behind the scenes, the politics. There are so many stories. And then it is the racing, and then again, it goes back to the cars. It's so beautiful, it's great."
