Hosted by CNBC’s Brian Sullivan, the first session comprised a Q&A with Marussia President/Sporting Director Graeme Lowdon and Sahara Force India’s Deputy Team Principal Robert Fernley. The second session had an array of drivers including Sergio Perez of Sauber who had finished third in the previous day’s Canadian Grand Prix, Caterham’s US Test Driver Alexander Rossi, Sahara Force India’s Paul di Resta, and Charles Pic of Marussia. Niko Hulkenberg of Sahara Force India was also in attendance, and Marussia’s Test Driver Maria di Villota greeted fans at registration. At the end of the sessions, an informal autograph session was held where fans were able to mingle with drivers and have their pictures taken.
