Leclerc Survives the Furnace of the Qatar F1 Grand Prix and Grabs More Points


Ferrari’s less than stellar season continued with nagging performance issues that left Leclerc never in contention for podium positions. Neither in the half hour Sprint race where points were up for grabs, neither in Qualifying nor in the race proper. 

Verstappen and Red Bull are in a league of their own this season and the two McLarens are proving faster than Ferrari. So that left fourth place in the main race a decent target for Charles. But even fourth place was to elude him as Russell in his Mercedes managed to squeak past the Monegasque ace leaving him relegated to fifth place.

H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince and H.S.H. the Princess of Hanover have just inaugurated a monument in tribute to Prince Albert I, commissioned from the Italian artist Giuseppe Ducrot and installed outdoors on the façade of Albert I High School in Chanoine Franzi Alley, Monaco-Ville.

After a period dedicated to painting and drawing, Giuseppe Ducrot, born in 1966 in Rome, where he resides and works, turned his attention to sculpture, a medium he later explored using a wide range of techniques such as terracotta, glazed ceramics, marble, and lost-wax bronze. His work draws inspiration from the classical art of Imperial Rome, Hellenistic sculpture, and the Baroque era.
