P.K. Subban challenges F1 drivers to a race in Zamboni and the result is quite unexpected

It's a very big weekend in the city of Montreal, where the annual Canadian F1 Grand Prix will be held. This is an international event and as such, it is one of the busiest weekends of the summer in the city, bringing together a diverse cast of characters from around the world.

This usually means that residents of the city are treated to a variety of special events over the course of three days, and this year it seems that former Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban decided to have some fun.

Subban, who will become an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career in less than a month, hosted an event this week featuring some of the Formula 1 drivers who will be competing in this weekend's Grand Prix. Not surprisingly, the event Subban organized was a race, but it was a different kind of race. Instead of having the drivers race on the track at high speeds, Subban did the exact opposite by having them race in a zamboni.

The event featured professional F1 drivers Sergio Perez and Yuki Tsunoda. Subban even decided to add Canadian Olympic gold medalist Sebastien Toutant, who is called "Seb Toots" in the video. Of course, all of these athletes, including Subban, are sponsored by Red Bull and the event itself was promotional for the famous energy drink company.

Despite the fact that the machine moves very slowly compared to a Formula 1 race car, both professional drivers looked unsure when they got behind the wheel. Perez asked Subban about the lack of seatbelts on the zamboni while Tsunoda seemed a bit concerned about how high he was sitting compared to normal.

Even though both men are professionals behind the wheel, you might be surprised at how difficult this proved to be for both of them.
