Grand Prix - Formula 1, Monaco: 9 reviews and 23 photos


The main attraction of the Monaco Grand Prix is the proximity of the speeding
Formula One cars to the race spectators. The twisting 78-lap circuit offers
incalculable opportunities for spectators to witness the thrill of screaming
engines, smoking tyres and the genius of the drivers over the 263-kilometre race
on a course that allows no margin for error.

The first Monaco Grand Prix was held on the 14th of April 1929. Since then, the
fastest average race speed has risen from 80 kilometres (50 miles) per hour to 142
kilometres (88 miles) per hour.

The Monaco Grand Prix is the seventh in the Formula One racing calendar.
