If you can get past the glitz, all the glam, the never ending babes, this is to me the most exhilarating, F1 race of them all. It requires both finesse and intestinal fortitude. Petrov had a knock out punch and was out for a moment after his crash which resulted in some leg injuries but no fractures. With 3 laps to go the race was still close Alonso had the fastest lap and with one lap remaining it was Vettel, Alonso, and Button. There is no stopping Vettel, this was a close. Don't stop the party as everyone now embarks on my home country of Canada for the Montreal F1 and trust me the party will not stop at My Name is Khan in Montreal.
While Hamilton, Vettel, Button and Alonso have been ripping up the track, those with the good presence of mind have taken the time to hit the beach, decided to do lunch on the yachts, as Q3 starts. Tires are again playing a big role for Red Bull, McLaren and Ferrari all three teams have two options. With four minutes to go Perez had a terrible crash as he hit the wall coming out of the tunnel. Perez held on to his helmet as he went into the wall. Both the fire and Ambulance crew were on site and brought out a neck protector as many people were around the site of the accident assisting. Perez had gone a little wide coming out of the tunnel which caused him to clip the barrier and lose control hitting the padded barrier as his car disintegrated. It is thanks to the safety at F1 that this crash did not end badly. The barrier got built and drivers let there cars loose on the track again. They finished with Vettel, Button, Webber, Alonso, MSC, Massa, and Hamilton.
Tonight is the time to party and the place to be is eleven Monte Carlo , where everything is done in style. Head out to my favorite oasis first introduced to me by Christian Viros former CEO of Tag Heuer, the Chateau Chever D’Or, in Eze Village the absolute best place to have a bottle of Rosé Champagne. Dinner should be in St-Paul-de-Vence at La Colombe d’Or and prior to starting dinner let them know you will want the Soufflé, which is the best in the world. After dinner you can still make it to the Amber Lounge, it’s heating up and the Mayhem in Monaco is only hours away at My Name is Khan.
The cars started to "varoom, varoom", the ladies went shopping, sunning on the beach, on yachts, and men started jumping out of Monaco helicopters. During the day the best mode of transportation in Monte Carlo, remains the Vespa, water taxi, or your two legs as the Principality goes into lock-down, while the cars zip, zoom and varoom around the circuit and come wiping around the The Rascass, screaming up to Casino Square. For those Americana's still loitering around South of France after Cannes it's been one long party. Things are about to heat up at the Monaco F1, so take a seat in the heat while the Moet in LVMH, is being chilled at My Name is Khan and get ready to dance.
Nice airport is getting busy. The private jets have been landing all week. The Monaco helicopter service is busy shuttling those landing at Nice to Monaco. The yachts are slowly filling up the ports but this is only the warm up of what awaits this my favorite event the Monaco Grand Prix at My Name is Khan.
Cannes 2011, was unique and that is hard to say about the Cannes Film Festival. This year brought the Italian invasion to Vila Oxygene which was transformed into The Playboy Mansion. OM magazine Italia, World Fashion Channel, Italian Vogue and Lamborghini brought all the Italian sizzle to make one night not to be forgotten. Littering the walk up to the Vila were Bugatti’s, Ferrari’s, Aston Martins, Lamborghini’s, and if you avoided the walk past these exotic Revo’s, and came off a yacht then you where subjected to making your way through the single ladies, international models, playmates, and beautiful women wanting to be playmates, actors, models, and singers. If getting to the Vila was a distraction, arriving there one was drowned in Champagne, music and the party fashionistas. Cindy Gomez possibly the next breakout artist had also rocked The Playboy Mansion at Vila Oxygene. Bravo to the team at Om Magazine Italia, 7 Dimension, Italian Vogue and Fashion Channel for a spectacular, stylish evening, the party never stops at My Name is Khan.
When the season began, it was clear that this season the tire would yet again become an integral part of race strategy. In Catalunya there was a wild start for Current Champion Sebastian Vettel, who was in a dog fight as if he was in the Battle of Britain with Lewis Hamilton. The boys from Britain fought it out to the very end with Vettel wining yet again except this time it was not a boring finish, and Button held off a charging Webber who was unable to keep pace and finished fourth. The eye candy and the bling, bling was oh so sweet, and it prepares you for the upcoming Monaco Grand Prix, one of my personal favorite’s. Get ready to dance at Amber Lounge, the fashion at Eleven Monte Carlo, the eye candy, and the bling, bling galore as the fun begins. “Don’t stop the party”, at My Name Is Khan.
