The gears are already in place and running for the Monaco Grand Prix, which is going to be held in a few hours’ time at the historic Circuit dé Monaco. One of the most celebrated F1 races on the calendar, this GP often sees celebrities from all around the world fly in to witness their favorite drivers battle for the top spot in the Principality. In the 2023 Monaco GP, stars like Latin-American rapper Bad Bunny, former Tennis World No. 1 Maria Sharapova, and Neymar Jr. have been spotted.
Representing Hollywood at the biggest event on the French Riviera right now, is Spiderman actor Tom Holland. The Briton arrived at the F1 paddock accompanied by his family. Now, it is a well-known fact that Holland and his Spider co-star Zendaya are one of the most popular young couples in today’s Hollywood–so fans were indeed a bit miffed to find out that they had not come to Monaco to see the race together.
As Tom Holland made his way with his entourage around the F1 paddock, fans took several videos of him sporting some shades, a blue blazer with a white undershirt, and a pair of blue jeans. This is not Holland’s first visit to the Monaco Grand Prix as he was spotted here in 2021 when Lando Norris, his favorite F1 racer, took the third place on the podium for McLaren.
Tom Holland might be at the Monaco GP to support Lando Norris
As the action movie ‘Spiderman’ remains Tom Holland’s biggest claim to fame, it is no surprise that the Briton loves the adrenaline rush that one usually gets while watch Formula 1 races. He has admitted many times before that he is a big F1 fan, and he even claimed that fellow countryman Lando Norris is his idol in the sport. With Lando scoring a top-10 Qualifying finish, hopes are high for the McLaren racer to bring some good points to the team today. And Tom Holland might be present at the McLaren pits to support him as well.
In other news, Lando Norris’ teammate at the papaya army, Oscar Piastri, did not have his luck at Saturday’s Qualifiers. The Australian narrowly missed out on entering the Q2 and will be starting from P11 at the Main Race. But Lando and Oscar’s promising Quali results have given new hopes to the McLaren squad who were beyond disappointed after both the racers got eliminated from Q1 at the Miami GP a few weeks ago.
