Blond-haired Gnabry goes on holiday to Barcelona and watches Formula 1
Serge Gnabry, who already caused a stir during the season with his trip to Paris Fashion Week, was intercepted by Sky reporter Peter Hardenacke for a short interview about twenty minutes before the race in Barcelona. After congratulating him on winning the championship title, the Dortmund native wanted to know from the Bayern star and Formula 1 fan where his passion for motorsport came from.
"Yes, a little bit. I was in Monaco for my first race last year, and I've been watching the documentary ever since. It's just super fun to watch it live," said the Germany international, who came out as a Lewis Hamilton fan. The next question really upset Gnabry, who will miss the upcoming international matches due to injury.

Gnabry at Formula 1 in Barcelona: A question upsets Bayern star
Hardenacke revealed that he had just gotten the hint that Gnabry's father is a big fan of Ayrton Senna and wanted to name his son after the Brazilian Formula 1 legend. "Where did you get the information from? It's true," said an astonished Gnabry, touching his freshly bleached head in embarrassment. Ayrton Gnabry?
"No way, Serge is good, Serge is good," Gnabry replied with a smile to the reporter's joking suggestion. But that was not the end of the matter for Gnabry. After the end of the interview, the 27-year-old Swabian turned around again because he obviously felt blindsided by the revelation of his father's plans. "You're not serious, are you?!" he shouted after the Sky team. The family anecdote from the house of Gnabry was made public by childhood friend and Bayern teammate Joshua Kimmich.

"His dad actually wanted to call him Ayrton, because of Ayrton Senna. He's a big Formula 1 fan. But his mom has apparently prevailed," Kimmich said in an FC Bayern podcast last year. On the Formula 1 weekend, Gnabry also met ex-Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski, who moved to FC Barcelona last summer. Judging by the pictures, both had a lot of fun at the reunion.
