Not one to be deterred, Brundle decided to get on his hands and knees to take a closer inspection and, remaining as professional as ever, informed viewers what he believed was being worked on.
"The car's up on the stands," he said, during the Sky Sports F1 broadcast. "There's sort of a ring of mechanics around so we can't get too good a look at it.
"They're taking part of the underfloor off, the plank as it's known."
Even when he was being blocked out by the Scuderia crew, he kept calm, saying: "It's okay you don't need to do that. I don't know what we can learn from this. They want absolutely nobody to get any view of the work going on."
