Formula 1 - Monaco
The Monaco Grand Prix is a Formula One championship race held each year on the Circuit de Monaco in the Principality of Monaco. The race is run on a tight street circuit that winds through the streets of Monte Carlo and has been an automobile race since 1929.
The circuit is extremely narrow, with a width of just 8 meters (26 feet), ideal for close racing and overtaking maneuvers. The tightness of the track makes it impossible to set up two side-by-side racing lanes. The race is widely considered one of the most crucial motor races globally, alongside the Indianapolis 500 and 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was first organized by Antony Noghes, who brought together wealthy automobile enthusiasts to form a racing club in 1929. Despite its short length, Monaco has produced some memorable moments over the years, most notably perhaps Ayrton Senna's victory at Monaco in 1988 after overtaking Alain Prost around the outside of the swimming pool complex.
Many racing drivers consider this race to be the highlight of their career, as it involves many risks and can be very dangerous. Many accidents have occurred in this race throughout its history, with many drivers being killed while racing on this track. But despite all the dangers involved, Formula 1 - Monaco remains one of the most important races each year and attracts millions of spectators worldwide.
It usually takes place on the last Sunday of May, and there this year's event is scheduled to take place on 29th May 2022.
The track has 78 laps, is 2.074 miles long (3.337 km), and there have been 15 wins from McLaren and six from Ayrton Senna.
