Check out my front-row view of the racing action - as Fernando Alonso speeds by in his Ferrari race car! It's been a crazy hectic week at the Montreal Grand Prix Formula 1 races. To say that I am exhausted is an understatement. With long days filled with so much to do and see, and then going out to parties and event every night, this Formula 1 world is not only glamorous, it is also hard work with brutal levels of commitment.
Despite minor blips, I feel very lucky to have had the chance to experience this phenomenal event. For the past few days I've been throughout Montreal, including wandering the streets of Old Montreal, ate at some great restaurants on boulevard Saint Laurent, experience behind-the-scenes of all things Grand Prix racing at the circuit, and even been the centre of attention changing a racing tire at the uber-popular Crescent Street Festival.
If you doubt my abilities, check out the video of me changing a tire on a race car— a skill picked up at the Crescent Street Festival during the pit stop challenge. I assure you, it is no small task!
On Friday, I had the chance to check out the F1 practice sessions, which was deafening. The F1 cars are unbearably loud, and I wish someone would have mentioned that earplugs are a necessity - E!
As for wardrobe, comfort had to be prioritized over fashion, but with attending so many events casual did not quite suit the occasion. So I wore a classic pair of Talula Babaton shorts with a silk blouse from Artizia. As for heels, they are a major faux-pas at the race track. Don't do it! Flats or flat sandals are the best bet, so I wore my Repetto "Rose Amour" Ballet Flats.

Following a million sunscreen applications, it was time for dinner. “Cafeteria” on Saint Laurent is a perfect mellow environment. With a cozy setting and a familiar dish, mac and cheese, it was the best way to wind down after a stressful day. Koko at Opus Hotel was our evening's destination. Long nights out after long days can be a strain, so we made a brief stop by before going back to the hotel to recover.
