2021 Monaco Grand Prix

21 May 2021 - 23 May 2021

About

The Monaco Grand Prix is a Formula 1 race held at the Monaco Street Circuit in Monte Carlo. The prestigious Circuit De Monaco has been hosting the Monaco GP every year since 1929. The track is considered to be one of the more challenging tracks of the year. The driver of any car makes about 60-63 gear changes per lap and the longest stretch of acceleration goes on till about 8 seconds in the tunnel. The 2020 Monaco Grand Prix was canceled because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The 2021 Monaco Grand Prix is expected to be held on 23 May 2021. 

Racing History

The track has been part of the Grand Prix Calendar ever since the inception. The circuit has been home to some spectacular moments in the history of the sport. In 1984, Ayrton Senna announced himself to the whole with a storming drive around the streets of Monaco where he would finish 2nd in the race in an uncompetitive Toleman. In 1988 Senna would qualify on pole with a lap that was more than a second clear of his teammate Alain Prost. The circuit would feature a close battle between Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna in 1992 as well as the Brazillian would just hold off the Williams driver. 

The circuit would also see Jarno Trulli win his first race as a Formula One driver in 2004 and would also be the sight of total domination of the field at the hands of Kimi Raikkonen. There would also be controversy in 2006 when Michael Schumacher would intentionally park his car at the La Rascasse hairpin in the final moments of qualifying to secure pole position. The circuit, although narrow and unconducive to the wheel to wheel racing has stayed as the jewel of the calendar with the track providing a unique character to the race. 

Michael Schumacher has won as many as 5 times on this track but Ayrton Senna was always the prince of the streets of Monaco as he was able to win this race 6 times. 

Mclaren is the most successful constructor with 15 wins on this track. In the 2021 season, Formula One would make a return to Monaco on 23 May 2021.
