Monaco Grand Prix
The Monaco Grand Prix is an annual Formula One race held at the Circuit de Monace. The race has been run since 1929 and is considered to be one of the most important races in the world.
The race is held on a narrow course laid out in the streets of Monaco, with many elevation changes and tight corners as well as a tunnel, making it one of the most demanding tracks in Formula One. 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 305km minimum race distance.
The race was included in the first Formula One World Championship in 1950. In both 1955 and 1963, it was designated the European Grand Prix.
German driver Sebastian Vettel won the most recent Monaco Grand Prix in 2011.
