Between luxury and sport, this event is the stuff of dreams for the thousands of spectators and amateur and professional racing drivers who come from the world over to watch the 6th race in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship. Monaco's population triples over the course of the event.

The 90th anniversary of a mythical race

This year marks the 77th Monaco Grand Prix, one of the oldest automobile races in the world. First held in 1929, it will celebrate its 90th anniversary in May.

It is always a decisive race for the drivers' championship rankings as the Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most difficult and slowest races of the season. With its narrow streets, its tunnels and its famous 19 bends, the race track is particularly tricky for the drivers.

Who will succeed the 2018 winner, Daniel Ricciardo? The Australian driver competing for the Renault F1 team holds the overall lap record, setting a time of 1'10"810 during qualifications.

Hopes are high for the young Monégasque driver Charles Leclerc, a former member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, who will be racing on his home roads. The verdict will be made public at the end of the 78 laps on Sunday 26 May and broadcast live on TV to more than a billion viewers.

To see one of the laps for yourself, the price of tickets for the Grand Prix ranges from €36 in the stands to almost €6000 for a VIP package.
