Conor McGregor visited top F1 team Haas on the eve of the Monaco Grand Prix - to declare his support for the team in advance of the glamorous event.

The Crumlin-born fighter star tipped Haas to be first past the chequered flag as he gave them his backing this weekend.

“We’re winning right here baby! Number one right here. Team Haas,” declared McGregor while posing for photos with the team’s drivers, mechanics and officials.

Haas’s drivers include Mick Schumacher, son of motor racing legend Michael, who posed for pictures with McGregor along with Kevin Magnussen.

The Dubliner was also shown the workings of one of the team cars as he examined its interior.

Later, he did some shadowboxing for onlookers who shared the clips to social media.

McGregor is spending an extended period in the South of France and arrived into the wealthy and glamorous French principality in time for the iconic Monaco Grand Prix, which takes place this weekend.

McGregor headed to Monaco fresh from this week’s Cannes Film Festival, where he and fiancé Dee Devlin attended a Chopard Loves Cinema gala hosted by the luxury watch manufacturers.

It took place at the Hotel Martinez and the couple partied with a host of big names in the film industry, including Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter Kiera Chaplin and model Adriana Lima.
