Monaco Grand Prix

This weekend the 67th F1 Monaco Grand Prix will be held in the streets of Monaco amongst the presence of enthusiastic F1 fans, celebrities attending the Cannes Film Festival's festivities in the French Riviera, and Monaco's Princely family.

Whether the fact that it's the only Grand Prix circuit that runs through city streets in the world (one can appreciate the beautiful landmarks of Monte Carlo during the race) or those attending it and the media coverage, the Monaco Grand Prix is probably the most famous Grand Prix.

The race will be held this Sunday, May 24 at 2:oo PM (Monaco time).

F1 pilots like Jackie Stewart, Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, David Coulthard, and many others have won this race.

Below is a video from Robbie Williams (the song in my opinion isn't that great) that tries to recreate F1 Grand Prix racing circa 1966-1967. Original footage from those years can be seen and also Jackie Stewart. The video's plot is a bit similar to the 1966 movie "Grand Prix" with Yves Montand.

just only the start up....I feel this year was a little boring....wasn't it? no competition, no crashes....jajaj

I miss so much the battles between Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher....Ayrton Senna, Gerar Berger, Alain Prost....

I know! It was very monotonous, I only watched the start and the awards ceremony. Was disappointed by Alonso's performance...what happened to him!
