Here's a man the sheriff watches (1)

What's new

Congratulations to Max Verstappen who won last weekend's Grand Prix, and commiserations to Charles Leclerc. The Monegasque had gained pole position following Saturday's qualifiers, in spite of (indeed because of) crashing into the barriers. Unfortunately the Ferrari team's inspection didn't pick up damage to the driveshaft, which was only revealed on the pre-race lap.

Monaco FC has qualified for the UEFA Champions League. Depending on the result of last night's Europa League final, the team will either start in the third qualifying round at the beginning of August, or will automatically go through to the group stage in September.

AS Monaco Rugby's Italian coach Luciano Orquera has decided to leave the Principality after 3 seasons. His replacement is Raphael Roggi, an ex-player for Frejus-Saint-Raphael who it's hoped will help push the Monegasque team towards promotion into the Federale 2 division.

In Brief

Monte Carlo Comedy Film Festival starts on Monday.

Covid vaccines are now available for 35-44 year-olds.

The Direction de Tourisme is launching a campaign to attract visitors back to the Principality. Check out the "For You, Enfin" video on Youtube.

Calling all Brits - the British Association is celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's official birthday with a slap-up dinner on 10 June.

And finally...

Monte Carlo Beach's Elsa has a new chef. Manon Fleury has worked with 3-starred Pascal Barbot, with Dan Barber in New York, and most recently in Paris as head of the kitchens in Mermoz. SBM's 100% organic restaurant opens for the season tomorrow. Enjoy!
