“I have been watching Formula 1 since before I can remember, and it’s always Monaco was the pinnacle of it,” Kit said to SkySports. “And for me even if the race is sometimes less eventful than other races, it’s still part of the calendar has to stay that way, I think”.

In Monaco, there is never a shortage of celebrities. However, one more pair that caught everyone’s eyes were Jacob Elordi and Simone Ashley. Combine that with Patrick Dempsey, and the crowd went crazy.

Patrick Dempsey’s love for motorsports is known well and it made very clear sense for him to be there.

He was seen in front of the Red Bull garage and even spent time with the Royals of Monaco at Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari stand. 

Bridgerton actress Simone Ashley was also spotted along with Euphoria’s Jacob Elordi. The two were seen together with Patrick in front of the Red Bull garage. The pair were also guests at Tag Heuer’s event. It was held on the Jacques-Cartier, a 430-foot luxury ocean liner. “My brother is a car head, so anything I know from automotive sports comes from him. It’s his passion, I understand it from far away,” said Elordi.
