Monaco Grand Prix

The Monaco Grand Prix is a Formula One motor race held each year in the month of May since 1929 on the Circuit de Monaco and is the sixth race of the Formula One season. It is widely considered to be one of the most important and prestigious automobile races in the world.

The track has tight and narrow 78-lap circuit which has the slowest average speed. In spite of the relatively low average speeds, it is a dangerous place to race. It is the only Grand Prix that does not adhere to the FIA's mandated 305 kilometres (190 mi) minimum race distance.
