F1 returns to racing in Montecarlo: where to see the GP

A one-week break more than necessary for F1, still bearing in mind the drama of the flood in Emilia-Romagna which last weekend led to the cancellation of the iconic and historic Imola GP. But now the single-seaters of the premier class of motor racing are ready to take to the track on another track that has made the history of this sport, that of the Principality of Monaco in Monte Carlo which every year offers entertainment, surprises and never-ending emotions.

Leclerc chasing the dream

One week after the canceled GP at Imola, with Ferrari donating one million euros to Emilia-Romagna, F1- which made the same donation to the Region hit by the flood, moves a few kilometers further north in Europe, stopping in Montecarlo.

In the Principality of Monaco, in a permanent circuit on the streets of the city, the pilots will be ready to do battle in what promises to be yet another weekend of the “all against Max“. But in addition to the Red Bull driver, the attentions are also directed to the landlord who wears red: Charles Leclerc.

Always hoping to be the prophet at home, Leclerc has always had a lot of bad luck on the street circuit. In fact, the 19 home curves gave him more pain than joy even when a smile seemed just around the corner. This is the case of the 2021 GP when he took pole, but after crashing into the wall he was forced to forfeit the race after the warm up lap. Only in 2022 did the joy come, with the first GP closed after three races in Monaco that never ended at the checkered flag.

Of course, the Ferrari that Leclerc is holding today will certainly not be the best and certainly not up to winning one of the most awaited appointments of the F1 season, but the Monegasque’s hope is always to get on the podium at home. A placement that can give confidence and that can break the fast of the season which so far sees only a third place in the race in Baku and a second place, again in Azerbaijan, in the Sprint.

A way like any other to try to rekindle the enthusiasm at Ferrari which after five races sees Leclerc 85 points behind leader Verstappen, a score that “drops” to 75 with Sainz. And in the challenge for the constructors’ title, the Red is even fourth behind Aston Martin and Mercedes with a Red Bull fleeing from the other of its 224 points (double the second Aston and +146 over Ferrari).
