Why the stars can’t resist the lure of the Grand Prix

If you like everything about spotting stars, the Grand Prix at Monaco is sure to be a hit. Like moths to a flame, each year the celebs are drawn to this coveted chic street event which looks more and more like a red carpet event than a Grand Prix. Read on to see who has graced the tracks over the past year.

The Cast of Game of Thrones

Kit Harington, Liam Cunningham and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau all recently spent time at the F1 Paddock Club Monaco as part of the Grand Prix. Having a rest from fighting on screen, all of these stars enjoyed being accompanied by two-time Grand Prix winner, Mika Hakkinen.

Hugh Grant

Ferrari has long been the favourite of Hugh Grant, the star of Love Actually. He roamed the pits, stopping to have in depth chats with reserve driver for Ferrari, Antonio Giovinazzi.

Tom Brady

Another celeb to be part of the Grand Prix F1 Paddock Club Monaco, Tom Brady, star of the NFL, threw the ball around with his legendary right arm with Daniel Ricciardo. If you are interested in visiting the F1 Paddock Club Monaco, follow the link to find out more.

Kris Jenner

The Kardashians have always been big fans of the Grand Prix, so it was no surprise that the matriarch of the family, Kris Jenner, showed her support for Lewis Hamilton.

Ron Howard

Ron has always known Formula 1 inside and out, a knowledge that was cleverly depicted in his 2013 film, Rush.

Alfonso Ribeiro

Ribeiro is best known for doing the Carlton Dance as Will Smith’s geeky cousin in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Many people were waiting for the much anticipated dance off between him and Kit Harrington to happen, but unfortunately they never pulled out their moves for the race.

Bella Hadid

Top supermodel, Bella Hadid, was also in the pits with Paulina Vega in tow, both looking stunning and wearing F1’s favourite colour – red.

How do all of these celebs get to the race and around Monaco? Many choose to take a boat, whilst others opt for a pricey car with an even pricier driver. However, Mika Hakkinen surprised us all by making his way there on an electric scooter.
