We are referring to 2009 winner Jenson Button, who was discovered carrying a mic while acting as a representative for Skysports. Nevertheless, given the debatable antics of 63-year-old Martin Brundle, the forerunner of the broadcasters Sky Sports, fans rallied to have the former champion replace him.

Today’s on-track segment has been excellent, and if we take a look at the off-track events, we can further emphasize how well the race has gone. Even though the veteran commentator Martin Brundle missed the Australian Grand Prix, Jenson Button did a good job filling in for his predecessor. The absence of Brundle left the crowd perplexed, but at the same time, the 2009 champion’s demeanor won them over.

Nevertheless, the debatable antics Martin Brundle has done over the last few years have made some fans wish that the sky sports team should replace him with Jenson Button. He had shown what a gentleman he is while talking to the pop star, Kylie Minogue. At the pre-race when Button saw Minogue in the paddock he soon approached her and asked, ” So are you OK if we ask you a question? How excited are you about this Australian Grand Prix? It’s been a while since I’ve seen you on the grid.”

To this, the pop star responded, ” I think it was 2007 or 2008, something like that, yeah. We were all here together with my sister. So I thought one of my nephews here, who is tragic, he’s an obsessive, so it means so much to me. Here in my hometown, magnificent day and all this excitement.” His charming act has won fans’ hearts and now they want him to replace Sky Sports senior analyst Martin Brundle.

Fans react to the charming Gesture of Jenson Button

Button’s civility might have captivated the pop singer. Even for once, if we consider he wasn’t able to win over Minogue, then he has certainly won over the fans who believe the broadcaster should give him an opportunity if Martin Brundle is to be replaced. The veteran commentator’s harsh behavior has made headlines. Pitt refused to engage in conversation with Brundle, who gained notoriety at the event the previous year by giving out some major sass to Megan Thee Stallion’s bodyguards on the COTA grid. Given below are some of the reactions.

“Where is Martin Brundle this weekend.”

“He’s a bit more polite than Martin.”

“If the legend that is Martin brundle does hang up the mic one sad day, please consider Jenson Button to be his replacement. It only makes sense. Especially from the perspective of Jenson who is a world champion and has battled from all places on the grid & also I doubt @martinbrundlef1 would mind me saying that Jenson may get better celebrities on the Grid walk INCREDIBLY IMPRESSIVE job done by @jensonbutton this weekend.”
