Rangers manager Gio van Bronckhorst is enjoying some downtime ahead of the start of pre-season next month – and he’s taken to Instagram to wish F1 World Champion Max Verstappen good luck ahead of today’s Monaco Grand Prix.
Van Bronckhorst shared a photo with the reigning F1 champion in Monte Carlo after yesterday’s qualifying session which saw the Dutchman put his car fourth on the grid ahead of today’s race.
The Monaco GP is the jewel in the crown of the F1 calendar and sees celebrities, athletes and many others descend on the principality for the shortest race on the calendar.
Van Bronkhorst is far from the only football personality spotted in Monaco this weekend, with England duo Phil Foden and Mason Mount also in town for the race.
With the iconic harbour providing a stunning backdrop, the visuals make up for the generally poor racing around the tight streets of the millionaire’s playground.
Rangers boss deserves a break at Monaco Grand Prix ahead of massive season at Ibrox
Van Bronckhorst has had a hectic time since replacing Steven Gerrard as Rangers boss and he deserves a chance to get away and recharge his batteries at the Monaco Grand Prix.
So far this season Max Verstappen has won every race he’s finished but will need to pull out something special to win in Monaco – although the possibility of rain could boost his chances of picking up the victory.
Who knows, with so many important people there, van Bronckhorst could just end up doing some business while he’s in the principality.
