The formula one circuit passes many famous buildings around the streets of Monaco and makes use of the famous tunnel, upon exiting the tunnel the track then winds around the Monaco harbour, for one weekend of the year those who have berths are politely asked to leave to a make way for the drivers, sponsors and team-owner yachts and the harbour is always full of the most amazing super-yachts.

*The current lap record was held by Michael Schumacher who managed to lap the track in 1:14.439 in 2004 (race conditions), this did look likely to remain as the lap record as the new tyres don’t offer as much grip, 2012 fastest lap saw a 1:17.296 time being recorded; however, pole position was a faster time of 1:14.301. Then this year (2018), the lap record was broken by the unpredictable Dutchman Max Verstappen with a time of 1:14.260.
The Monaco circuit has seen many changes over the years and the most recent has been in 2015 which saw a slight shortening of the overall length of the race, not by much we might add.

Monaco Grand Prix 2019 Report:
Lewis Hamilton endured a near race-long battle with the Red Bull of Max Verstappen while wearing a special helmet in tribute to Niki Lauda who sadly passed away just a few days before the Grand Prix started. He ended up winning and securing his third Monaco Grand Prix title and an epic 77th GP win of his career.
Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas took the other podium spaces, respectively. Max Verstappen had been Hamilton's his main rival in the race, but he was dropped down to fourth after incurring a 5 second penalty for an unsafe release earlier in the race.
Charles Leclerc the local boy sadly did not entertain the crowds as he had to retire early on lap 18, though he did get a consoling embrace from Princess Charlene of Monaco later in the day.
Monaco's Other Attractions
Prince's Palace of Monaco
The Sovereign Prince of Monaco has his official residence in this grand home which was built in the late 12th century as a Genoese Fortress. The palace has a long and sometime dramatic past with sieges and bombardments being part of its claim to fame and was the home of the Grimalda Family for many centuries.
This palace was more of a fort than the usual luxurious residences that other European sovereigns were building, but that was sensible due to the political tensions of the time that meant it was necessary to be fortified for their own safety and this made it a more unique place throughout the land. Though in the 18th century after reducing the defensive capabilities of the place the French did seize the castle and plundered the establishment of its wealth and then it fell into disrepair.
Monte Carlo and the French Riviera in the 19th and 20th centuries was a place of glamour and decadence and a resurgence in the fortunes of the palace cam about and this was helped by the arrival of Hollywood movie star Grace Kelly who would become chatelaine of the palace in 1956, just to add to its mystique and glamour. The tombs of Prince Rainier and Princess Grace can be found in the cathedral nearby in the square, built in 1875 with striking looking white stones in a Roman-Byzantine-style architecture. The Palace to this day is the current residence of the Prince of Monaco. Well worth a visit before heading to the circuit and all the thrills and spills of the Formula One.
