But after a feature was shown on Brundle ahead of the British Grand Prix viewers were then told he felt unwell and was going to the medical centre.
Ross Brawn was due to give him a trophy for his broadcasting feats but that had to be cancelled last minute.
Chris Hayter tweeted: “Crikey Martin Brundle just taken to the Silverstone medical centre after feeling unwell. Let’s hope this isn’t too serious #BritishGP #F1.”
Alison Wade added: “How emotional to see @rossbrawnmercgp with that trophy for @MBrundleF1. Hope is ok. @SkySportsF1 #BritishGP #20yearsGridWalk #SilverstoneGP.”
And Simon Stone was in agreement saying: “All the best @MBrundleF1, we are going to miss you. Hope you get well soon buddy.”
