Monaco Grand Prix Information:
The Grand Prix is 78 laps on a 3.340 km (2.075 mi) circuit which races around the narrow winding streets of Monte Carlo and La Condamine, which includes the famous harbour. It is unique in having been held on the same circuit every time it has been run over such a long period. The Circuit de Monaco is one of the most exciting in the world, with little room for driver error.
The course has had some minor changes several times during it's history to improve safety but is still considered the ultimate test of driving skill in Formula One, and if it were not already an existing Grand Prix, it would not be permitted to be added to the schedule for safety reasons.
One of the most notable features of the course includes the tunnel. The contrast of light and dark as the drivers enter/exit the tunnel are not faced elsewhere. The drivers have to adjust their vision as they emerge from the tunnel at the fastest point of the track and brake for the chicane in the daylight.
