They throw in Drummer Hodge, to rest... (1)

Spare a thought for Charles Leclerc who started last weekend's Grand Prix in pole position, but due to his Ferrari team's mistakes dropped to fourth place. Red Bull's Sergio Perez won.

Game of Throne stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie were spotted in the crowds, and the event was a welcome boost to Monaco's hospitality industry in spite of the rain.

Now the teams have moved on to Azerbaijan and the streets will soon return to normal. A deal on next year's race hasn't yet been agreed between the Automobile Club and F1's parent company, Liberty Media. We can't imagine Monaco without the Grand Prix, but everything depends on the upcoming negotiations.

In other sporting news, Monaco's bobsleigh team is looking for new recruits. Men and women aged 16 to 30 are invited to a recruitment day on Saturday at 10:00 in Stade Louis II. Candidates should have experience in rugby, weight lifting, power lifting, athletics, or practise CrossFit. Olympians Boris Vain and Rudy Rinaldi will demonstrate how to push an 80-kilo cart, then each participant must cover 40 metres with it as fast as possible. For more information email[at]

And finally...

Head up to the Place du Palais at the weekend where the 3rd meeting of Monaco Grimaldi's Historic Sites is taking place. Saturday 10:00-22:00 and Sunday 10:00-20:30. Enjoy!
