20 May – 23 May 2021
Every year, the Monaco Grand Prix remains one of the greatest events of the Formula 1 calendar, with nearly 250.000 fans in attendance over the race weekend and a live global audience of 110 million viewers. Even if you’re not the racing- or the champagne-sipping type, this event is still a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The first race, held on 14 April 1929 under auspicien of Prince Louis II, was won by William Grover-Williams and predates the first official World Championship by almost three decades. The narrow course laid out in the streets of Monaco, with many elevation changes and tight corners as well as a tunnel, makes it one of the most demanding tracks in Formula One. Its location is what makes this Grand Prix so unique, no other race can be experienced as intensely as Monaco. The many stands, balconies and terraces spread throughout the city alongside the track truly put spectators in the heart of the action.
With all its history and royal prestige, the Monaco Grand Prix still is the most glamorous race of all. Tickets are hard to come by, so book both your marina and ticket reservations well in advance. Alternatively, you might want to consider the Historic Grand Prix, which is held in the last weekend of April. This Grand Prix offers a whole different spectacle and takes you back to bygone days with gorgeous vintage cars racing the Monte Carlo streets.
