What's new

Last weekend's Historic Grand Prix proved to be very successful for the British, and especially for Michael Lyons who triumphed in three of the seven races. Up next is the E-Prix, but as of writing the Automobile Club (ACM) hasn't revealed if the tribunes will be open to spectators. With another three weeks before the main event, Nice Matin reports that Stefano Domenicali of the F1 thinks the public will be allowed to watch the Grand Prix on the Sunday, but the final decision is ACM's to take.

In other exciting sports news, Monaco Roca basketball team beat Kazan in the first round of the Eurocup final on Tuesday evening with Prince Albert looking on. The second match takes place in Russia tomorrow and if Kazan win, the deciding game will be on Sunday.

And finally...

We're giving a shout out to one of the restaurants on the Rock, where in the past year businesses have suffered more than in other parts of Monaco. In March 2020 we tried to book at Le Petit Bar, and last weekend we managed to reserve a table for lunch on its small terrace. Tasty food, great wine, and friendly service. Enjoy!
