Venus Williams ditched the VIP treatment for the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix over the weekend.

The tennis pro – who was seen rubbing shoulders with stars like Lewis Hamilton and Tom Brady on Sunday – arrived to Miami International Autodrome by bus, Page Six has learned.

A source onboard the Red Bull-chartered vehicle told us that they were surprised to see the A-lister hop on the bus the morning of the race.

“She was with three girlfriends,” the insider said, adding that Williams, 41, “was really friendly” and said “hi” to other passengers.

Over the weekend, Williams was also spotted partying at the Red Bull Guest House, an exclusive, invite-only soirée held at Faena in Miami Beach.

We’re told songwriter Frank Ocean, who is rarely seen in public, spent time at the luxe hotel throughout the Grand Prix weekend. Williams’ sister, Serena Williams, also partied there, alongside celebs like Christian Horner, Diplo, Lele Pons and Bad Bunny.

AlphaTauri drivers Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda also made an appearance at Guest House the night before Miami’s inaugural F1 race, as Channel Tres, Soul Clap and Horse Meat Disco provided entertainment.

Venus, who wore a blue dress with a peter pan collar on race day, also made headlines after longtime F1 pundit Martin Brundle awkwardly mistook her for her younger sister.

“Serena, tell us what you think of this event here in Miami,” the British Sky Sports reporter asked her while on the starting grid, ahead of Max Verstappen’s victory.

“We love having Lewis [Hamilton] and all the other drivers here in Miami for the first time,” she replied, before an excruciatingly long silence.

Venus, confused about why the English commentator was still holding his microphone in her direction, said, “Oh, sorry, what was the question?”

Brundle replied, “Oh, I don’t know. It doesn’t matter really.”

It wasn’t his only awkward encounter on the grid, however. Brundle also mistook NBA hopeful Paolo Banchero for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

“It’s not Patrick, that’s why he ignored me,” Brundle said while standing next to the college basketball star.
