Sean Brosnan with his fiancé Sanja Banic both filmmakers and partners of Knight Marcher Films came to spin their own magic with Red Bull Racing resulting in the first win by the Australian driver born in Perth, Daniel Ricciardo.

Daniel Ricciardo passed series leader Nico Rosberg with two laps to go and held on for his first Formula One victory in a wild Canadian Grand Prix and Sean and Sanja got a real up close look at it all from start to finish.

Ricciardo the 24-year-old became the first non-Mercedes driver to win in seven races this season, although even he admitted there was luck involved (Sean and Sanja maybe) and that it is too early to say that Red Bull is back as a championship contender.

“Obviously Mercedes had their issues and that enabled us to close on them,” a giddy and still disbelieving Ricciardo said after the race. “It’s a bit surreal. Really cool.”

The Aussie driver remembered to save some champagne from the post-race podium celebration to spray on his race engineer, Toronto native Gavin Ward.

Rosberg finished second despite engine and brake problems, while the second Red Bull driven by four-time world champion and defending Canadian Grand Prix winner Sebastian Vettel came in third.

The race ended under a caution flag after a spectacular crash involving Sergio Perez’s Force India car and Felipe Massa’s Williams. They narrowly missed taking Vettel out.

Sean and Sanja are used to hollywood action but in Montreal at the Canadian Grand Prix who could have predicted the ending of the race, and they loved every moment, soon afterwards heading back to Ottawa and to a movie set. Both Sean and Sanja agree “F1 Rocks”.
