Racing analyst Martin Brundle ravingly atones for misidentifying Paulo Banchero at the Miami Grand Prix a year later
Fast forward to the 2023 Miami Grand Prix on Sunday. Brundle, the British racing driver and ex-Formula 1 driver, and Banchero, the NBA #1 draft pick Who would Rookie of the Year for the Orlando Magic, reunited before launch. (Check out the video below.)
This time, Brundle correctly identified Banchero, noting that he didn’t get the player’s name right last year, and continued with that gem of an interview-starter: “What a year you’ve had since you made me infamous.”
“It’s been a hell of a year and I’m honored you know my name now man,” said a smiling Banchero. “It’s been a hell of a year and you’re great at what you do.”
Now that Brundle has come full circle at that moment, he may be able to recruit Brad Pitt for an interview at a Grand Prix race later. A previous attempt didn’t work so well.
