History and facts
The Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix is run on the street circuit of Monte Carlo in Monaco. This is the most famous Formula 1 street circuit and among the most prestigious in the world.
The first race took place on April 14th 1929, under the orders of Antony Noghes founder of the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM), but the first time it qualified for the World Championship dates back to 21st May 1950 and saw the debut of Ferrari in Formula 1.
The Monaco Grand Prix is the race that all drivers dream about winning at least once in their career. The Monte Carlo circuit is in fact the shortest and most difficult in the World because of the lower speeds, and the narrow and tortuous track.
The peculiarity of this circuit is the combination of high-speed areas with the exceptional slowness of some parts.
Some of the curves are taken at the highest speed in the world such as the “Piscine“, that is driven through at about 190 mph, which was enlarged and sped up in 1994, as well as the wide faster curve inside the tunnel, in which speeds exceed 280 mph.
But the Monaco Grand Prix is famous mainly because it includes the slowest corner of the world of Formula 1: the legendary shape of the Fairmont Hairpin, that is taken at around 55 km/h.
This unique and fascinating Grand Prix is held annually under the watchful eyes of the members of the Grimaldi Family and it is a delicate test for the drivers in the race.
The curves of Saint Devote, the Virage du Casino, the Mirabeau hairpin, the Fairmont hairpin, the Tobacconist and Rascasse curve (former Gasometer curve), make any kind of overtaking almost impossible. The slightest error in the streets can be fatal and this is why to win is really the talent of the pilot.
To date the record of wins (six), belongs to the Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna, a legend in the history of Formula 1. The next closest to this record are Michael Schumacher and Graham Hill who have both reached the coveted milestone of 5 wins.
