The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most breathtaking
races events in the world. It’s filled with yachts, celebrities, and extravagance, and it lends itself to some of best photos the sports calendar has to offer.
Lewis Hamilton won the Grand Prix for the 2nd time in his career, mere steps away from his apartment in Monaco. Hamilton beat out Daniel Ricciardo, who captured the first pole of his career the day before.
I’ve picked out 13 pictures from the weekend that put Monaco’s beauty on full display. Go ahead, take it all in.

Nick Saban may not have had any interest in checking out today’s much-hyped solar eclipse, but he seems to be the only one in the sports world.
At least according to these epic #SolarEclipse2017 sports Twitter moments.
The NASCAR community was on point with their eclipse celebrations, seriously you’re missing out if you’re not following any of these teams/drivers on Twitter.
But they weren’t the only ones.
Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Billy Horschel weren’t the only golfers taking in the views (with proper glasses), Tiger Woods bought into the hype too.
The Rome Braves had their break, but Bartolo Colon watching the eclipse will be your moment of zen.
And remember, if you were truly amazed by #SolarEclipse2017 goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has some more mind-blowing universal knowledge for you.
GILGO BEACH, N.Y. (AP) The son of World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Vince McMahon has been rescued unhurt from a helicopter that made an emergency landing in the ocean waters off New York.
Shane McMahon was the passenger in the Robinson R 44 helicopter that came down in the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island’s Gilgo Beach late Wednesday morning. The red aircraft could be seen bobbing on its bright yellow pontoons as small boats circled.
Shane McMahon is also a WWE executive. His mother is Linda McMahon, who heads the Small Business Administration in President Donald Trump’s White House.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the helicopter had taken off from Westchester County Airport in White Plains. The pilot issued a mayday call before going into the water.
It’s not yet clear what went wrong.
