McFadyen is an F1 personality and digital strategist for Motorsport Network. While in an interview with her, Hulkenberg stormed off the scene.

Talking about this, McFadyen conveyed in a video, “He once de-microphoned himself and basically like threw it back at me and was like ‘I’m done’.”

When asked what led to the German racing driver taking the action, she further stated that she asked Hulkenberg, “Describe how you feel when driving around Baku in an emoji, I think literally something like that and he was like ‘Nah I’m done.’

F1 fans slammed the F1 personality for her question

That was not all as Jess McFadyen also whispered ‘what’s a podium‘ on the Nico Hulkenberg issue, which enraged the F1 fans. Statistically, the current Aston Martin reserve driver for 2022 has never picked up a podium in his entire F1 career.

McFadyen’s whisper at the end was what made F1 fans question her for Hulkenberg’s action. A fan commented, “Can’t blame Hulk after that question” while another wrote, “I mean that’s a dumb question, I don’t blame the drivers for being sick of them.”

Another fan wrote, “I am with Hulk in that case,” while another fan wrote “The drivers have to do a lot of media duty, no driver wants to answer questions like that. No need to disrespect a driver like that.”

The series of comments continued as another fan wrote, “I mean Drivers are getting tens of media work every day and are super busy and sometimes have to delay things to do media work and then you get questions like that I don’t blame him.”
