The stern-to superyachts in Monaco looked in pristine condition yesterday, despite the showery weather, as the F1 drivers took to the track for the first and second free practice sessions for this weekend’s Monaco GP. World Championship leader Lewis Hamilton topped the first session, while Fernando Alonso headed the second. The day’s racing over, there was a chance to relax at the scores of parties and sponsors’ events that were taking place on the yachts and onshore.
