Machine Gun Kelly walks out of Sky F1 interview after awkward Martin Brundle moment

Rapper Machine Gun Kelly walked away from an interview with Martin Brundle before the F1 Brazilian Grand Prix - while performing a gesture to the camera.

MGK was present on the grid at Interlagos as Brundle was conducting his usual gridwalk segment before the start of the race.

To call the interview between the pair awkward would perhaps be an understatement, with Brundle not able to coax too much out of his guest.

You can watch a clip of the interview below.



After being asked a series of questions about his music career, MGK turned the tables on the legendary F1 commentator and former driver, asking him about whether they could perform an air guitar and air piano collaboration - live on air.

Brundle turned down the request, which didn't exactly go down well with the award-winning rapper.

MGK walked away from the interview, putting his thumb down to the camera to show his displeasure.


That left a bemused Brundle to remark: "Something tells me I won't be on his Christmas card list."

MGK would then watch on as the Brazilian Grand Prix got off to a chaotic start, with a red flag brought out following a multi-car collision that forced two drivers to retire.

The race restarted with 17 cars - also minus Ferrari's Charles Leclerc, who crashed out of the race before the opening lap due to a steering issue.

The Brazilian Grand Prix was eventually won by Red Bull's Max Verstappen, who fended off an early charge from McLaren's Lando Norris to win comfortably and take the chequered flag.


The end of the race was dominated by a battle between Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez.

Perez overtook Alonso with just two laps remaining, but the Spaniard kept pace with his rival and produced a thrilling last-lap move to finish ahead of him by just 0.053 seconds, claiming the final place on the podium in the process.
