Turned out nice again. (1)

F1 rolled into Monaco on Monday and whizzed into action. Why the late arrival? It was all down to the FIA scheduling the Barcelona and Monaco Grands Prix just one week apart. Teams had to dismantle their stuff, load it onto wagons, set off for Monaco and erect it all again in three days rather than the usual five.

Today the carnival begins. The track closes to traffic at 10:00, so if you have somewhere to go by car, you'd better set off soon. Getting the party started this evening is Club Vivanova, with its kick-off do at Cova on avenue Princesse Grace.

Tomorrow afternoon it's the F1 practice sessions and then you'll have to hurry if you're going to make it to Amber Lounge's U*nite fashion show. Contact monaco[at]amber-lounge.com, +33 7 88 84 67 01.

There's one last practice session on Saturday at 13:00, followed by the qualifiers at 16:00. But Sunday is the big day, with the drivers' parade at 13:00, and the race beginning at 15:00.

If you're here for the partying rather than the petrol, Note Bleue has concerts Fri-Sun, 15:00-midnight, +377 93 50 05 02. Alternatively Sunset beach parties have returned to the Meridien Beach Plaza, Fri-Sun, midday-midnight. Contact info[at]sunsetmonaco.com.

And finally...

However you choose to spend the Grand Prix weekend, don't forget it's Mothers Day on Sunday!
