Preparations for the Monaco Grand Prix

Months before the Grand Prix, intensive preparations start to change the look of Monaco. The pit lane is set up and crash barriers, fences and huge stands are installed. New buildings are erected at the Place du Casino in Monte Carlo. Balconies and stands with a view of the racetrack are enlarged so that even more motorsport fans can experience the Grand Prix first-hand. Tickets for the Monaco Grand Prix are available on official and unofficial websites, where customers can also buy additional services. The racetrack runs through the districts of Monte Carlo and La Condamine and the Casino bend leads the cars directly past the famous Casino of Monaco. The Circuit de Monaco is a relatively low-speed city track. The hairpin bend at the Hotel Fairmont is the slowest turn in Formula 1. If a driver makes a mistake during the Monaco Grand Prix, he will hit the crash barriers. If a pit stop takes too much time, the driver can no longer hope to win the race. Every year, the Monaco Grand Prix is the highlight of the F1 racing calendar and attracts celebrities, actors, musicians, film stars, racing drivers, officials, athletes, journalists and media representatives. Formula 1 motorsport enthusiasts from all over the world come to the Principality of Monaco to be part of this prestigious event.


The Monaco Grand Prix – a truly glamorous experience

Promoters and organizers offer hotel reservations, tickets, terrace seats, luxury charter yachts and exclusive private balconies overseeing the racetrack. Thanks to limousine services, restaurant reservations, yacht parties and meetings with racing drivers, visitors of the Grand Prix can enjoy their share of glamour. Every luxury hotel in Monaco and every hotel in the surrounding area is fully booked. More than one hundred charter yachts and private yachts provide comfortable luxury suites on the sea or at Port Hercule during the race, where guests have a stunning view of the racetrack. Every year, there are more celebrities than the year before. Bernie Ecclestone showed up in the pit lane, together with his daughters Petra and Tamara. Virgin founder Richard Branson, Prince Albert of Monaco with his wife Charlene, Flavio Briatore, seven-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher, Cameron Diaz, Michael Douglas, Nicole Scherzinger, Princess Beatrice with her boyfriend Dave Clark, Geri Halliwell. In 2013, Nico Rosberg took the title with his Mercedes team, claiming the first win of the season, World Champion Sebastian Vettel came home second and his Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber finished third. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) won the 2016 Grand Prix in Monaco after eight winless races. Second went to Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull), third to Sergio Perez (Force India). World Championship leader Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) ended the race in seventh position. Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) won in 2017 in front of his teammate Kimi Raikkonen the Grand Prix. Third was Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull-TAG Heuer). The Monaco Grand Prix is a truly glamorous experience and Monaco's most important event of the year.
