This week the racing weekend starts on Thursday, not the usual Friday, because the Formula 1 arrived in the Principality of Monaco.
Last year on the streets of Monte-Carlo victory in the rain race celebrated Lewis Hamilton, although a huge gift to the British was made by the Red Bull Racing team, which simply was not ready to accept Daniel ricciardo at the pit stop, which the Aussie has lost a faithful the first place.
In 2017 Lewis is again one of the favourites for success. Speaking about the title race, he lags behind Sebastian Vettel just six points. Interestingly, this street circuit is not really the favorite for Hamilton and Vettel, the Briton won here twice, and the German managed to win only once.
Thursday practice starts at 11:00 and 15:00 Moscow time. Saturday’s qualifiers will start at 15:00. At the same time on Sunday the lights go out, signaling the start of the race.
GP Monaco will be for the fans of the Big Prizes important event, but after only a few hours after his graduation at the start of the “Indianapolis 500” will be a current F1 pilot Fernando Alonso.

Moreover, the appearance of double world champion on “Old Kirpichnaya” really was not serving numbers, because the race, which starts at 19:05 Moscow time, he qualified with the fifth time.
