Formula One broadcaster Martin Brundle made the rounds at the British Grand Prix on Sunday before Max Verstappen picked up another victory on the circuit this season and had a strange interaction with model-actress Cara Delevingne.
Brundle approached Delevingne and introduced himself as a broadcaster for Sky F1, but Delevingne said “No” a few times. Brundle said that anyone who is on the grid is expected to be open for random interviews when he or someone approached them.

Delevingne smiled as she politely declined.
Brundle, a former F1 driver and 24 Hours of Le Mans racer, has been a broadcaster for the top-flight international racing series since the late 1990s and is highly regarded in his field.

But he hasn’t come without some hiccups.
The incident led to a change in F1 as celebrities were then barred from having bodyguards escort them on the gird.
