“There’s a reason why I’ve never watched back an F1 gridwalk in a quarter of a century of doing them. You have no idea how much I dislike doing them but somehow those crazy moments have defined my professional career 🤔. Oh well, that’s the way it is,” posted Brundle on his Twitter.


The hilarious encounters are worth watching and mentioning as Martin Brundle stumbles across the grid before trying to find a racing driver. But to his misfortune and Twitter’s amusement, all he found were celebrities at the Miami Grand Prix gridwalk.
