To start the events, Monaco’s sporting mad Prince hosted his annual pre-F1 soccer match in Monaco’s Louis II Stadium. The friendly match pits members of the F1 racing teams as “Nazionale Piloti” against the Prince’s “Star Team.” The game is played to benefit AMADE, an organization which special ties to the Monaco ruling family, as it was first organized by Princess Grace. Princess Caroline currently heads the organization but was unable to attend the event.

Team Nazionale Piloti, in Black and White checked flag uniforms included Felipe Massa, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel, Giancarlo Fisichella, Sebastien Bourdais, Jarno Trulli and Nico Rosberg. Both teams were cheered on the sidelines by Monaco’s Princess Stephanie.

Current, updated photos and information about the Monaco F1 Grand Prix will be available in this thread throughout the Grand Prix.
