Bizarre and expletive-ridden but nonetheless excellent footage from inside the McLaren pits with rapper Ice-T:
Here he is on the grid in a second video which appears to be narration-free out of respect for the performance of the Canadian national anthem:

“The Manor, as the mansion is known, has parking for 100 cars, a bowling alley, a beauty salon, several rooms dedicated to gift wrapping and a “Prince Charles suite” where the heir to the throne once stayed.”

On this day in F1

It was one of Patrese’s best wins. Having started from pole position he dropped back at the start, but fought back and passed team mate Nigel Mansell for the lead on lap 15.
