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.”
