Formula One broadcaster Martin Brundle made the rounds at the British Grand Prix on Sunday before Max Verstappen took another victory at the circuit this season and had a strange interaction with model and actress Cara Delevingne.
Brundle approached Delevingne and introduced himself as a Sky F1 announcer, but Delevingne said «No» multiple times. Brundle said anyone on the grid is expected to be open for random interviews when approached by him or someone.

Delevingne smiled as she politely declined.
«I’m sure it would have been extremely interesting,» Brundle seemed to say sarcastically as he walked away from her.
He later defended himself on social media.
«I was told to say no so I did. Thanks for watching both sides xxx,» he tweeted.
A former F1 driver and racer in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Brundle has been a broadcaster for the top-tier international racing series since the late 1990s and is highly respected in his field.

But it hasn’t come without a few hiccups.
Last year in Miami, Brundle became the butt of a joke when he mistook then-Orlando Magic rookie Paolo Banchero for NFL superstar Patrick Mahomes. The two would meet this year to discuss last year’s mistake.
In 2021, Brundle approached hip-hop star Megan Thee Stallion on the Texas gridiron. One of his bodyguards tried to push him away while asking an innocuous question about whether he had a freestyle verse about running.

The incident sparked a change in F1 as celebrities were banned from having bodyguards escort them in the girdle.
