The Monaco Grand Prix brings the wealthiest people from all over the world together. It is set in the luxurious streets of Monte Carlo, and is one of the most traditional races on the calendar.

The circuit winds its way through the streets, from Ste devote, it goes uphill to Casino square, then plunges back down to Mirabeau before heading into the Loews hairpin. The tunnel that leads to the harbourside chicane echoes with the roar of the V10 engines. This is one track where overtaking is virtually impossible.

The first race was run in 1929, and in 1950, it was second on the calendar, when ten cars collided in a spectacular first lap accident, and Fangio raced on for the win. This track has so much history, itís hard to compress it in a few short sentences, but it goes without saying that this circuit is one that remains a favourite in many fans hearts, for many different reasons. It is a circuit based more on driver skill than the speed of the car.

Stirling Moss won in 1956, but in 57, he was involved in an accident at the chicane, and handed victory to Fangio. Moss was the main pace setter in this era, and his most memorable victory was in 1961 when he expertly held off both Ferraris. It was the first race after Ayrton Sennaís tragic death, and it saw Michael Schumacher dominate, as he did again in 1995. Panis scored a surprise win for Prost in 1996, and Schumacher dominated once again in wet conditions in 97.

The McLaren of Mika Hakkinen took the honours in 98, with Schumacher and the Ferrari returning to claim the Germans fourth win in 99. The year 2000 was David Coulthardís time to shine, the Scot winning ahead of Ferrari driver, Rubens Barrichello and Benetton man, Giancarlo Fisichella.
