According to Matt Damon, Christian Bale had to lose 70 pounds before filming began. Bale had previously gained a lot of weight for his role in Vice (2018) and had about seven months to lose it all and then some to play the lean race car driver, Ken Miles. Damon inquired of Bale how he managed to lose all the weight to which Bale replied that he simply didn't eat. Damon said he was impressed by Bale's monk-like discipline.
Dan Gurney is portrayed in the film by his youngest son, Alex Gurney.
The film was formerly titled "Go Like Hell" and Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt were considered for the roles.
Christian Bale was originally set to play Enzo Ferrari in Michael Mann's Ferrari (2020), but dropped out to do Ford v Ferrari instead. Mann replaced him with Hugh Jackman.
