For the reason that rising university tuition fees having been assemble by an annoyed student response in Montreal, hacker group Anonymous has already threatened to attack Formula 1 websites which post information concerning the race but without mentioning the student situation.

‘With regret, the Grand Prix du Canada announces today the cancellation of the popular ‘Open Doors’ day, originally scheduled for the morning of Thursday, June 7. Following a serious examination of the situation, made necessary by public disruption threats and the difficulty to measure their precise validity, the organisers came to the conclusion that it is necessary to restrain the access to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and precisely the F1 pit lane, on the day preceding the first sessions on track.’

“Having to cancel our ‘Open Doors’ day make us extremely sad,” says François Dumontier, President of the Grand Prix du Canada.

“We wish to express our sincere apologies to the F1 fans and, among them, a good share of our spectators who appreciate this annual gathering with the Word Championship teams. When we finally made the decision, we weren’t exactly happy, being fully aware that this activity is an important part of the appeal and the tradition of true friendliness at our event.”
