Christian Bale’s Farewell Message to Bob Bondurant
Bob Bondurant worked with Christian Bale in the summer of 2018 while Bale was training to play the role of Ken Miles in the movie “Ford V. Ferrari” (2019). Bob and Ken were dear friends, and in addition to the hours spent on the track teaching Christian in his GT40, Bob also taught Christian all about Ken, his mannerisms, and how to embody his character.
Unfortunately, Bob passed away on November 12th, 2021. Christian was unable to make it to Bob’s funeral services, however he sent the Bondurant team this very heartwarming and touching tribute about his time with Bob on and off the track.
