FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DE MONACO 2016

Race Information

Monaco, Monte Carlo

May 29 | 14:00 local time, 14:00 CET

The Monaco Grand Prix needs little introduction - the jewel in the crown, of the FIA Formula One World Championship™. It has been on the schedule since 1950 with a four-year break from 1951 to 54, with only a few changes to the course layout down the years and continues to create an atmosphere like no other when the month of May comes around. Home to many of the F1 drivers, Monaco is a tight twisty circuit where overtaking is extremely difficult. Every year here provides a memorable story, but Ayrton Senna’s spectacular exit from the 1988 running as he led comfortably remains a classic. Of the current drivers Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen have all won once, while Fernando Alonso has two victories. The race’s iconic podium on the main straight sees the victor handed his trophy - one of the most sought after pieces of silverware in world sport - by the Prince.
