68th Grand Prix de Monaco - Flavio's Force Blue


This is former Renault team boss, Flavio Briatore's little runaround. Following the Singapore scandal in 2008, he was banned from working in F1 until 2013, but he's been given special permission this year to enter the paddocks at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Force Blue is 207.5 feet long. The former owner was Roy Speer of the Home Shopping Network.

It's often hard to get a side view of the bigger super-yachts in Monaco's port as they are moored tight up next to each other but I happened to be in the port the other day, whilst there was no other boat alongside Force Blue. The guy in the smaller photo was whizzing about on his little craft organizing where boats were to be moored, checking papers and so on.

I'm off to the Grand Prix today - photos tomorrow.

Nice. Beats a rowing boat I guess.

That is pretty impressive. Wouldn't mind spending a night there :)

Hope to see you on Norwich Daily Photo soon. Have a great week ahead!

I suppose you've got to have something to do when you've not got a job!

Uhmm Jilly, since last week it's no more the Flavio Briatore's little runaround but the Italian Fiscal Guard's little runaorund ;-)

Yes I heard today the tax people have taken the yacht. What dramas!

They said that the Briatore's son (the kid: "Nathan Falco") cry all the day because far from his room on the yacht where he was used to live. --- Sometime Justice is very cruel.
