Martin Brundle often gets treated like dirt by celebs at F1 races — but on Sunday … the shoe seemed to be on the other foot during his interview with one Terry Crews.
The racer-turned-broadcaster was doing his thing during the Hungarian Grand Prix, where Terry was on the grid … chillin’ with the Red Bull crew and taking in the sights. Like he usually does, Martin sorta bum-rushed him and started peppering him with questions.
Good sports that he is … Terry played along, and gave great, thoughtful responses. Terry talked about the technology of the cars and said he was learning a lot about the sport.
Now, for the most part, TC is getting tons of praise for how he handled himself here. Considering how others in the recent past have dealt with Martin — namely, kinda giving him the cold shoulder, which often goes viral — Terry’s engagement is getting a big thumbs up.
Terry Crews was great with Martin Brundle. Up beat and excited. The way Marin Brundle cut away from Terry Crews was disrespectful. Should have said Thank or something positive #SkyF1#HungarianGP
But watch how Martin ends this impromptu chat … he quickly cuts it short, without even thanking him for his time or anything. He beelines it to another interview subject and leaves Terry awkwardly hanging. Even during the convo, you can tell MB is barely listening.
Welp, folks at home certainly took notice … and some are labeling Martin rude in how treated Terry — which, again, is ironic seeing how he’s normally the one being snubbed.
I’m a fan of Martin Brundle but he could have at least said thanks to Terry Crews who was actually having a decent conversation with him before running off and chasing Sainz. #F1#HungarianGP
