Formula 1 Stars Leclerc, Gasly Meet Rublev & Rune After Monte-Carlo Final
The latest thrill for two Formula 1 stars was not a white-knuckle trip around a racetrack, but a highly entertaining championship Sunday at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters.
Monagesque Charles Leclerc, brother and Formula 2 driver Arthur Leclerc and Frenchman Pierre Gasly were among the stars who watched Andrey Rublev capture his maiden ATP Masters 1000 crown in a thrilling final against Holger Rune.

“I’m extremely excited, it’s one of the biggest events of the year here in Monaco,” Charles Leclerc said in a video produced by the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters. “I’m really happy to be here. It’s amazing to see such a big sport event here in Monaco and see so many people attending.”
Gasly added: “It’s my first time here in Monte-Carlo for the Masters, definitely excited to be following the final. I love the competition. I love to be able to see greatness in a different environment.”
During the preceding doubles final, Leclerc was on the edge of his seat as he watched countryman Romain Arneodo and Austrian Sam Weissborn compete against fifth seeds Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek. After saving two championship points, the Croatian-American duo sealed a dramatic Match Tie-break.
