Delevingne refused to be interviewed during the grid walk at Silverstone.
Cara Delevingne has responded to Sky Sports Formula One commentator Martin Brundle and explained why she turned down his offer of an interview at the British Grand Prix.
As is customary on most Grand Prix weekends, Brundle took to the track for the Silverstone to speak to some of the biggest global superstars but when trying to approach the 30-year-old, he was told by another F1 representative that “she doesn’t want to talk”.
Brundle then responded: “That’s the deal now, everybody talks on the grid… can we have a quick chat at Sky F1? Good to see you on the grid.”
Despite his best efforts, the former British racing driver was unlucky in his pursuit, before sarcastically adding: “Okay, well, I’m sure it would have been extremely interesting.
It wouldn't be a Martin Brundle gridwalk without a little awkwardness ? pic.twitter.com/iCgilk1DqB

Later that day a Twitter thread posted by Devin Altieri led to a response from Delevingne on why she didn’t want to speak to Brundle.
Altieri said: “At this point, Martin Brundle is just doing it to manufacture the moment for the controversy of it all.
“You can clearly see the PR rep tell him “no” and shake his head when he goes up towards Cara Delevingne. He had an out and he chose not to take it to make a statement.”
Delevingne then responded, confirming that she was advised not to speak to Sky, saying: “I was told to say no so I did. Thank you for seeing both sides xxx.”
She then added that the person who told her to say no was an F1 representative and not her agent.
