Formula One will observe a one-minute silence ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix as a mark of respect to the victims of Manchester's terror attack on Monday night.

Twenty-two people were killed and 59 wounded after a bomb blast at the Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande concert.

Britain's Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button — who is replacing Fernando Alonso in Monte Carlo this weekend — will be among the 20 drivers to line up at the front of the grid before Sunday's race to pay their respects. F1's teams, the majority of which are based in Britain, have also agreed to run #Manchester on their cars in tribute to the victims of the terror attack.
