The Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most prestigious automotive races in the world, raced on the Circuit de Monaco around the glamorous streets of the Principality, thousands of spectators from all over the world flock to the wealthy location to see the race every year, and as the popularity of the Grand Prix grows, so do the crowds.

It was 1929 when the first Monaco GP was witnessed which pre-dates the current World Championships. The first race was set up by Anthony Noghes who had an ulterior motive in doing so. The race was originally formed in order for the ACM (Automobile Club de Monaco) to be granted a global status, but it soon became a popular event and had outgrown its original purpose. The invitation only race was won by French driver William Grover-Williams in a Bugatti Type 35B.

Monaco’s track layout and tight cornering has led to some surprising results over the year which has made it so entertaining.

It’s safe to say that the Monaco Grand Prix splits opinion questioning whether it’s race for the purists or not, but there is no doubting the drama it produces on and off the track.

From the yachts on the harbour to the deafening noise of the cars going through the famous tunnel, the Formula 1 calendar would not be the same without Monaco on it.
