Former Formula 1 driver and respected pundit and presenter Martin Brundle has taken to Twitter to offer his thoughts on *that* gridwalk moment at the US Grand Prix with Megan Thee Stallion's entourage.

Brundle was back charging up and down the grid ahead of the race in Austin, Texas, on Sunday with a long-awaited return of his gridwalk, that sees him talking to drivers, team members and celebrities in short interviews ahead of lights out.

Indeed, it had been a staple of pre-race coverage before the pandemic and it was great to see it back, with an iconic moment for more than one reason being thrown up when he stumbled across Megan Thee Stallion.

Whilst she seemed relatively happy to talk to Brundle, members of her team were clearly not so keen, with one of them telling the former driver he 'couldn't do that,' to which he quickly replied 'I can because I just did.'

It was a classic Brundle moment and with the internet ablaze with the video he took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to offer his reflections, as well as suggesting some that find themselves on the grid need to improve certain aspects of their interaction with people:

We loved it, anyway, and it was great to see Martin back amongst it on the grid.
