It was just this past Friday, that we informed you about Daft Punk having teamed up with F1 Lotus Racing to have a Daft Punk race car entered into the Monaco Grand Prix. And while the car did crash on a practice lap Friday, it was all fixed and ready to go for the race on Sunday. With Lotus racer Romain Grojean behind the wheel of the car, he felt that he was sure to get lucky with this race. Grosjean also had some support in the pit, as Daft Punk themselves showed up to watch the car in action. Donning the signature helmets, Daft Punk was dressed in customized race suites featuring the Columbia Records logo on one part of the chest, and the Lotus F1 Race team on the other. Even though Grosjean crashed in the race as well and never finished, it was great to see the car out there in full action. See the photos featured above and watch the video of the Daft Punk car crashing below.
