Michael Douglas stops interview with Martin Brundle to praise him, it was so wholesome

There was a wholesome exchange between Hollywood legend Michael Douglas and former F1 driver Martin Brundle prior to the Spanish Grand Prix.

After last weekend’s chaotic Monaco Grand Prix, F1 moved to Barcelona for the Spanish Grand Prix.

Prior to the race, Brundle was interviewing many famous faces during his grid walk for Sky Sports.

The likes of Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell and Trent Alexander Arnold all spoke to the former driver but it was the interview with Douglas which caught the eye.



When Brundle approached the actor for a quick chat, Douglas interrupted in order to praise the Sky Sports man.

He said: “Can I just stop you for a second to say what an excellent job you do, weekend in, week out.

“I’m so impressed, both here in the pits and your colour commentary. You’re amazing!”


A jubilant Brundle responded: “I really appreciate it, you’ve made my day. Thank you very much!”

Brundle then spoke to Catherine Zeta-Jones, he said: “I met you decades ago with our lovely friends Mansoor and Kathy!”

Zeta-Jones said: “I used to watch F1 with my dad, in the Nigel Mansell years. So to come here and have experience with my family, it really is a family event for us – we love it.

“And I second Michael – your work, what you do, you really make it!”


Fans were quick to react to the wholesome moment on social media.

One said: “Only telling Martin how we all feel about him. National treasure!”

Another tweeted: “They both seem so genuine and it’s nice to see how decent people can be who are famous and treat others with respect.”


A third fan added: “Loved this! Real F1 fans. Great appreciation for @MBrundleF1.”

Someone else wrote: “This is what happens when actual F1 fans who are also celebrities are at races. Love to see it.”

Whilst a fifth commented: “Love Michael Douglas giving Martin the love he so very deserves!!!”
