Martin Brundle responds to 'embarrassing' Machine Gun Kelly interview

Martin Brundle responds to 'embarrassing' Machine Gun Kelly interview

Sky Sports F1 presenter Martin Brundle has responded to his awkward Machine Gun Kelly interview at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Martin Brundle has responded to his 'embarrassing' Machine Gun Kelly interview at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

The Sky Sports presenter was up to his usual antics following his legendary grid walk on Sunday (5 November).

But as the camera panned over to Machine Gun Kelly, the interview turned very cringy, very quick.

Watch below:

The 64-year-old asked the rapper, 33, to 'tell us about your career'.

“Oh, my career. I don’t think about my career, I don’t think about it,” MGK awkwardly replied.

The interview did get a bit better though - before it got worse.

MGK - whose real name is Colson Baker - was a little chattier when Brundle asked him for his thoughts on Formula 1.

He said: “I think your business is great. It's loud, your life is on the line and that's exciting.

“I was in a studio the other week and Lewis Hamilton was in the other studio. That was nice, yeah."

Baker then used the 'UNO reverse card' and asked Brundle the same question, but about Formula 1.

Brundle responded by praising the ‘synergy between the music business and the motor racing business’.

Things then got weird again.

It's very painful to watch.

Kelly asked the interviewer for his ‘best air guitar’, in which Brundle refused to do - whilst admitting that he ‘learned the piano once’.

“Let’s do an air piano and air guitar collaboration right now,” MGK said.

The Brit refused again, which prompted Kelly to stomp off, giving the camera a big thumbs down.

Brundle concluded: “Something tells me I won’t be on his Christmas list."

This is not the first - and won't be the last - time that Brundle has had a bizarre run-in with a celeb on the grid.

In October 2021, the veteran presenter was ignored by American rapper Megan Thee Stallion before the United States Grand Prix as she was being blocked by her bodyguard.

Poking fun at both incidents on X (Twitter), Brundle shared an image of the two rappers and actor Megan Fox, MGK's apparent girlfriend.

“Finally, my claim to fame, I’ve met two of these three people,” he wrote.

“I do appreciate them taking some time out on the grid for our great sport. I hope they didn’t find me too weird.”

As users on X criticised MGK's exchange, calling it ‘the cringiest of cringe’, the rapper has today (6 November) responded to the haters.

The star replied: “My vibe is 'the worst' how? Because someone put a microphone in my face essentially forcing me to do a random interview when I was just trying to enjoy an event?

“Because car engines were so loud I couldn’t hear him? Please tell me more about why I’m the worst.”

In another tweet late last night, he also wrote: “My anxiety has won. I hate being in public.”
