If there’s one guy who’s got all the stories from the last three decades of Formula One, it’s Martin Brundle. He also made Ayrton Senna work very hard for his F3 championship and won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Jaguar.
Nowadays, when not on TV with Sky Sports, he drives an Eagle E-Type, and it’s your time to ask him anything!
Martin Brundle went from oval racing and touring cars to F3 and fighting Senna all the way to F1. In the late eighties, he made a move from open wheelers to prototypes, winning the World Sportscar Championship and the Daytona 24 Hour in 1988 with Jaguar and Tom Walkinshaw Racing. Before winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans with 1990's Jaguar XJR-12, he also got back in F1 with Brabham, only to end up racing for Benetton, Ligier and McLaren in the nineties before getting dropped by Jordan in 1996.
What must have felt like a disaster at time turned out to be the best thing that could happen, because Brundle became a broadcaster in 1997, only to grow into the greatest F1 commentator views could ask for. Watching F1 on TV wouldn’t be the same without his smart insights.
We are just before the new F1 season and after the winter tests, so now is your chance to ask him about Bernie Ecclestone’s weird habits or Lewis Hamilton’s latest hairstyle. Plus the Eagle Jag, obviously.
