If he could turn back time, spokesman for Formula Peel Street Party says he would have loved to become a Formula One driver.

Stu Cowan: Former Canadien Patrice Brisebois has a passion for F1

  After winning the Stanley Cup in 1993, Brisebois attended the Canadian Grand Prix for the first time when the Canadiens brought the trophy to Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve and a couple of weeks later purchased his first sports car, a Porsche 911.

  In 2002, Brisebois bought his first race car, a Ferrari 360 Challenge, and learned to drive it on Circuit Mont-Tremblant.

  Two years later, he raced for the first time on Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in the Ferrari Challenge, a support race for the Canadian Grand Prix.

  Brisebois isn’t taking part in any support races at this year’s Formula One race, but he’s still excited about Grand Prix weekend and is a spokesman for the Formula Peel Street Party, which started Thursday.

  Brisebois is hoping Montreal driver Lance Stroll performs well this weekend in his Racing Point F1 car, but at heart he is a huge Ferrari fan.
