2023 Monaco GP Odds

The Monaco Grand Prix takes place at the Circuit de Monaco in Monte Carlo. It is one of the oldest circuits on the calendar, as Formula 1 has been racing there for seven decades.

Unofficially, Formula 1 racing has taken place in the streets of Monte Carlo since the late 1920s. In the present day, it’s a challenging, twisting circuit that many drivers love.

Triple world champion Nelson Piquet described the track as “like riding a bicycle around your living room” given the narrow, high-speed demands of the circuit.

Monaco Grand Prix History & Highlights

The iconic race through the streets of Monte Carlo first began in 1929 when cigarette manufacturer Antony Noghes organized a race with the Automobile Club de Monaco.

He was a friend of the House of Grimaldi, the ruling house of Monaco. The race is held in the Monte Carlo neighborhood, hence why it’s often referred to as “Monte Carlo”.

Though it’s one of the oldest tracks on the F1 calendar, the Circuit de Monaco has not changed much since the first official Formula 1 race in 1950.

The biggest changes came in the 1970s: a chicane was moved in 1972, the swimming pool section of corners was added in 1973, and the Sainte Devote and Anthony Noghes curves were tightened in 1976.

Later changes include the addition of the Nouvelle Chicane in 1986, the swimming pool section was tightened in 2003, and in 2015 the Tabac corner moved slightly.

Since 1950, the Monaco Grand Prix has happened every year, with exceptions in 1951, 1953, 1954, and 2020. A win at the Circuit de Monaco is one of the most sought-after on the calendar.

Two-time world champion Graham Hill had the nickname “Mr. Monaco” thanks to his five wins in the 1960s. Overall, three-time champion Ayrton Senna has the record for most F1 race wins at the Monaco Grand Prix with six.

Circuit Information

The current Circuit de Monaco is 2.073 miles in length with 19 corners. Due to its mix of low-, medium-, and high-speed corners, passing is a challenge. The 2003 Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix featured zero overtakes.

The current Formula 1 lap record is 1:12.909 set by Lewis Hamilton in the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix. The circuit’s seating capacity is 37,000.

The Monaco Grand Prix is currently held during late spring and often has warm, sunny weather. But there have been some exceptions; the 2022 race saw damp conditions throughout. The 1996 Monaco Grand Prix set a Formula 1 record with just three cars finishing in very wet weather.
