Circuit de Monaco

Circuit de Monaco Profile

The Monaco Grand Prix is quite simply the most famous street race in the world.

The thriving heart of the city, regarded as the “millionaire’s playground”, is transformed every year for what is known as the jewel in Formula 1's crown.

A tight armco-barriered circuit around the streets of Monte Carlo provides a magnificent spectacle. The cars charge past such landmarks as the Hotel de Paris, the Casino, and then through the tunnel and out around the harbour front.

The track is created overnight by a team of engineers who take over when the traffic stops. The circuit is interesting, tight and demanding, with little room for error, or overtaking, sadly.

The current layout, with Tabac slightly altered, has been used since 2015.

Remember first practice is on Thursday not Friday.

Directions: Monte Carlo is easy to get to, with a full international airport at Nice, road, rail and helicopter links. The principality always provides a magical atmosphere for the race.
