2016 Canadian Grand Prix - Thursday pitwalk
Today was the Thursday pitwalk at Circuit Gilles Villenueve in Montreal where people can walk through the pitlane, seeing cars, drivers, team personnel, and lots more up close. It's one of the best days of an F1 weekend when it comes to access. Despite the annoyingly cold 49 degree weather complete with wind and some rain, the pitlane was completely packed the entire 3+ hours it was open.
To quickly get to the other side of the track, there were shuttle buses going from the entrance to the end of the pitlane. Not very often can you take a city bus around a Formula 1 track.
