Reporter Martin Brundle Bungles Interview In Awkward Case Of Mistaken Identity At Miami Grand Prix

As a former driver, British racing commentator Martin Brundle knows his auto sports. But he didn’t seem to notice the difference between 6-foot-10 NBA prospect Paolo Banchero and 6-foot-3 Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on Sunday.

In Sky Sports coverage of the Formula One Miami Grand Prix on ESPN, Brundle thought he was interviewing the football star before he realized after a few questions that he was not.

He asked Banchero who he was, and the former Duke star, who could be a top NBA draft pick, clearly did not register with him.

“Right, OK. Well, I thought I was talking to somebody else, so sorry about that,” Brundle said, adding a dismissive “whatever.”

The one-time Super Bowl MVP, who’s 26, and Banchero, 19, had a laugh on Twitter afterward.

But that interview was one awkward piece of work.
