Before Megan’s security staff interrupted the discussion, he requested her to rap a freestyle. Brundle seems to be snubbed by the main bouncer, who tries to extend his arm to impede him. MTS’ crew warned the legendary F1 racer that he could not really speak to her in the way he wanted. It also brought fresh F1 guidelines, stating that any celebrities on the circuit are no longer expected to have escorts.
