Monaco Grand Prix 2020 - Formula 1

One of the most famous F1 races in the world on a unique circuit

Featured in: | Updated

Cancelled in 2020

The 78th edition of Monaco Grand Prix will take place from Thursday 21st of May to Sunday 24th of May 2020. The program of this event will remain as sportive, animated and festive as always.


April 14, 1929, Prince Pierre inaugurated the 1st Monaco Grand Prix, and performed a lap of honour in a Voisin Torpedo driven by Race Director Charles Faroux. Louis Chiron was notable by his absence from the start line that day, as the young Monegasque had entered the Indianapolis 500. There were 16 cars on the grid (eight Bugattis, three Alfa Romeos, two Maseratis, a Licorne and a Mercedes SSK) with positions drawn at random.

A certain Englishman by the name of W. Williams, who arrived too late to take part in the official practice sessions, got up at dawn on the Saturday and stunned all onlookers with an unofficial practice run. Williams went on to win the Grand Prix in a green 35B Bugatti in a time of 3 hours, 56 minutes and 11 seconds, at an average speed over the 100 laps of 80.194kph. The race was a phenomenal success.
