10:34 – Liberty Media resurrected Formula 1’s Raft Race at the former Olympic Rowing Basin, adjacent to the paddock at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. GPUpdate.net provides an overview of the convivial event.
Building a raft
Seven of the 10 Formula 1 teams (all bar Mercedes, Ferrari and Force India) fielded entries, while there were two Formula 1 squads, an entry from the FIA, the promoters, and a fan submission. Each team, which featured seven members, was given the same equipment, and 45 minutes in which to construct their raft.
