GG Formula D Championship
Probably the most famous and recognisable circuit on the F1 calendar – and the last throwback to the era of street racing, the Monaco Grand Prix was first staged in 1929 and after being included in the first Formula One world championship season in 1950 and has been an ever-present feature on the calendar since 1955.
The race is considered as a ‘must win’ race for drivers, a combination of being technically difficult but also extremely glamorous and high profile. The circuit is one of the most demanding with no margin for error as the Armco barriers that line the track are at some points just inches from the cars. Triple world champion Nelson Piquet described it as similar to “trying to cycle round your living room”.
