Martin Brundle suffered a mild heart attack last year At the Monaco Grand Prix

Мартин Брандл перенёс микроинфаркт на прошлогоднем Гран При Монако

Former F1 driver and now commentator Martin Brandl said that during last year’s Monaco Grand Prix suffered a mild heart attack.

British man became ill when he went to the podium to interview Lewis Hamilton and prize-winners Daniel ricciardo and Sergio Perez.

“I had a small heart attack when I ran to the podium in Monaco,” said Brundle at Autosport International.

Later, Martin admitted on Twitter that he passed a medical examination, after which he had to refuse participation in the coverage of the Grand Prix of Canada. However just two weeks later he delivered a one-hour support race at Le Mans behind the wheel of a prototype LMP3.

“I installed a 23-mm stent in the left atrium. I didn’t know if I can participate, but the cardiologist said, “Yes, you can speak, but don’t forget about the drug to thin the blood,” he continued. – On tests in the composition of the Palmersport I drove 75 laps and said, “Yes, I can do it”. I had pain in my chest, but I decided I can’t miss “Le Mans”, because I love this race.

Sitting at a press conference next to the 17-year-old and 19-year-old racers, I thought, “not Bad for a 57 year old geezer”. In the race we unfortunately finished second.”
