The Allure of the Monaco Grand Prix
The jewel in Formula 1’s crown, Monaco is undisputedly in a league of its own. If there's one podium divers want to get, it's Monaco. And if there’s one race the glitterati and F1 fans want to be at, it’s the world’s most intoxicating race, Monaco Grand Prix. The race can make a driver’s entire career and is the one all drivers dream of winning at least once in their lives, defined best by the famous Nelson Piquet, “a win here is worth two anywhere else!” .
The Monaco Grand Prix time epitomises everything that’s great about Formula One racing: speed, glamour, passion, noise and a hint of danger because the cars are never too far away from the barriers. No other sporting fixture generates such excitement or has such a beautiful and sophisticated setting. Set in the heart of the millionaire jet-set’s playground you can’t help but rub shoulders with masses of A-list stars who religiously attend every year to breathe in the petro-adrenaline charged atmosphere.
Dating back to 1929, the Monaco Grand Prix is the Formula One highlight of the year and THE race of the year. Drivers race by landmark monuments such as the Hôtel de Paris, the Casino, the former Loewe’s tunnel and of course the beautiful super-yacht lined marina. Overtaking is near impossible here so qualifying in Monaco is more critical than at any other Grand Prix. A combination of precision driving / technical excellence / sheer bravery / and luck is required to win in Monte Carlo, facets which separate the men from the boys in Formula One.
Monaco also has the slowest corner in Formula One - the Loews hairpin, followed by the tunnel, one of the few flat-out sections of the track. Some great names have ended their races in the barriers here, most notably Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher.
To win in Monaco places a driver's name on a list that includes many of history's all-time greats. Both Graham Hill, the man nicknamed 'Mr Monaco', and Schumacher have won it five times, Alain Prost took four victories, whilst Stirling Moss and Jackie Stewart each won here three times. But the record of wins in the Principality resides with the Senna, who won in Monte Carlo six times.
