Monaco Grand Prix: Formula 1 Heads Home

The Monaco Grand Prix is without doubt one of, if not the most, prestigious events in the Formula One Racing calendar. Having been named the home of F1 Racing, as the residence of a number of F1 drivers, it is also the host of the Historic Grand Prix, which has already taken place.

From Thursday 24 May to Sunday 27 May 2018, all eyes are on the racetrack that runs through this billionaire’s playground, with tensions high as it is renowned to be one of the most challenging to navigate.

Favourites Red Bull and Ferrari head to Monaco with high hopes, whilst Mercedes have some concerns over the manoeuvrability of their car on the slow, tight track around the Principality. Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton is 17 points ahead of Sebastian Vettel for Ferrari following wins in the past two races, but with doubts from the team, it is unclear whether Mercedes will remain in pole position.

Monaco is one of the few places in the world where fast cars meet super yachts, creating an electrifying atmosphere that permeates the streets-come-race track. The port fills with some of the Riviera’s finest yachts, making it possibly the best way to entertain your guests during this top event. Once the race is finished, you can take your guests on a very special cruise to the surrounding bays of Monaco and the French Riviera. It may be too late to get in on the action for this weekend, but it is never too early to start planning for next year!
