68th Grand Prix de Monaco - Aussie Rules


The Monaco Grand Prix is sensory overload. That glorious harbour, those amazing yachts, the beautiful people on the terraces and then of course there are the cars, the colour, the noise - yes don't forget the noise - but it's all part of the excitement as the cars roar by. You blink and they are around the next bend. What a day.

Well we all know the winner and here you see him - one very happy Mark Webber. He now leads the driver's championship.

The smaller photo shows the cars a second after the start as they race towards Sainte Devote and below, well there it is, the port of Monaco putting on a show. More tomorrow...

I am so glad I read your blogpost. We are on holidays out of news range, so I wasn't aware that Australian Mark Webber won the race and is leading the championship. Now THAT IS GREAT NEWS, thank you for posting it.

WOW I love the view of the harbour and the spectators.
The race winner is a happy man.

I have to admit that I envy you! You always seem to have front row seat no matter what excitement there is in Monaco and/or surrounding areas.

Of course I'm grateful that you share all this fun with us, so thanks again!

The top photo looks like photographers' feeding frenzy! Love the photo of the dock; reminds me a little bit of Portofino.
