Track Info
MONACO GRAND PRIX

Monaco Grand Prix: those words are music to the ears of race fans. Monaco is associated with glamour, fashion, yachts, the Casino, but most of all, it is linked to F1 and has been since 1950, the first year of the Formula 1 World Championship as we know it.

The race has been held 65 times to date. The paradox of the most famous motor race in the world is that Formula 1 would not be as successful without it and yet, if it was to be proposed as a new race today, it would be dismissed out of hand on logistical and safety grounds.

F1 and Montecarlo in history

Monte Carlo itself has only produced one F1 driver born there, Louis Chiron, whose best result was a third place in his home race in 1950. He was best known for his amazing antics waving the chequered flag, after he was appointed race director in the Sixties.

This is the only race that doesn’t have a proper podium as the top three drivers all get taken along to the Royal Box, at the side of the track, from where the ruling Grimaldi family has always watched the race and handed out the prizes.

Boss of the Principality for a day in 2018 was Daniel Ricciardo who won the Monaco Grand Prix from pole position.

Coming to this race also means experiencing the delights of the Cote d’Azur, which, in late May, is a really great place to be by the sea.
