Watch 'hugely ignorant' Venus Williams refuse grid walk interview with Martin Brundle
If you've ever watched the Formula 1 coverage on Sky Sports, you'll know that Martin Brundle's pre-race grid walks are the stuff of legend.
The former F1 driver, who has worked as a commentator since 1997, works his arse off in the moments before a grand prix - doing his damnedest to have a quick word with as many of the celebrities that gather on the starting grid as he possibly can.
Ahead of the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, things were no different as Brundle weaved his way through the crowds snatching a word with a number of familiar faces.
Ending a brief chat with Gordon Ramsay, Brundle explains to the celebrity chef that he's going to have a word with tennis star, Venus Williams. Brushing off Ramsay's jibe about his lack of height like a pro, he makes his way over to Williams who is standing a couple of yards away.
Unfortunately for Martin, Venus wasn't up for talking - stiff-arming the man after appearing to refuse his requests for a chat.
Quite a demoralising 40 seconds for this man. pic.twitter.com/CyJ8ffG1kM

Viewers were far from impressed at the tennis star's reaction to Brundle, as shown by the tweets below...
Venus Williams blanks Martin Brundle on the grid. Remind me: which one is an ex-F1 driver and has the most right to be there? Haughty cow.
