Monaco Grand Prix Winner Sergio Pérez Receives Louis Vuitton Trophy – Robb Report
Last weekend, the winner of the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix, Sergio Perez won the first place trophy in the 79th running of the race, along with a special travel case to help keep his trophy safe and in style.
The trunk, designed by Louis Vuitton, was presented to the Mexican runner on Sunday May 29 by SAS Prince Albert II. It sports the same features as the model for the 78th edition of the circuit, which sports the French fashion house’s signature Monogram canvas in the same eye-catching shade of red as that of the Monegasque flag. Meanwhile, the red lines of the handcrafted trunk form a “V” shape which means “victory”; these are delimited by a white band which reflects the urban layout of the track. The gold trophy itself represents the 19 turns of the 2.09 mile track.
Although Sunday’s race was delayed due to heavy rain, Perez– a Red Bull rider since 2020 – finally made it through with a win. According to Formula 1, the proud compatriot has amassed more points than any other Mexican driver in the event’s history. This season alone he has won 110 points in seven races, including his victory in Monaco and his 4th place finish at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in March.
The magnificent chest gives Earn more bragging rights. Louis Vuitton created it in its historic Asnières workshop on the outskirts of Paris as another in its collection of bespoke travel cases for coveted trophies. Some of the prestigious awards for which the Maison has produced trunks include the FIFA World Cup, NBA Larry O’Brien Trophy, League of Legends Trophy, Rugby World Cup France 2023, Davis Cup, Roland Garros and the America’s Cup. Each case is a representation of the brand’s clever slogan, “Victory travels in Louis Vuitton”.
The Monaco Grand Prix was first held in 1929 and is known as one of the most prestigious motor races in the world. When discussed alongside the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Indianapolis 500 by racing enthusiasts, it is known as one-third of the unofficial Triple Crown of motorsport. Fans will also tell you that the occasion showcased the skills of some of F1’s greatest ever champions, including winners Aryton Senna, Graham Hill, Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost and Lewis Hamilton, among others.
Last year’s trophy marked the first collaboration between Louis Vuitton and the Automobile Club of Monaco. And with its stellar work this second time around, we might see a brand new case from the fashion label at the Monaco Grand Prix next year, if we’re lucky.
