A few days before the start of Monaco’s 76th Grand Prix, Charles Leclerc, the 20-year-old Monegasque Formula 1 driver, went to the Palace to offer his helmet to Prince Albert.

After previous successful seasons in the GP3 and Formula 2 classes, Charles Leclerc made it into his first year in Formula 1 in the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team.

Prince Albert took the opportunity to offer him autographed photos of their first meeting as a souvenir of the occasion and wished him a “beautiful week at home” on the circuit in the Principality.

Leclerc’s participation will stir even more interest than usual in Monaco as the Principality immerses itself in the world’s favourite Formula One race.
