Monaco is the world’s second-smallest country, spanning only 2.2 square kilometers. Yet it's the capital of the wide world of car racing.

For more than 70 years, the country has hosted the Monaco Grand Prix. It’s one of the world’s most unusual racecourses, running through the city streets of Monte Carlo. The course goes through a tunnel, up a cliff, and passes just feet from the harbor; it's earned the nickname “the race of a thousand corners.”

Because of its design, the Monaco Grand Prix has produced some of the most memorable moments in car racing history. But that's not the only reason the race is so prestigious.

Monaco is a tax haven, and for decades has been a favorite place for the rich and famous to stash their wealth. The Grand Prix weekend is the country's biggest weekend of the year, and the combination of a unique course and the world’s most famous people make the Grand Prix the world’s most prestigious car race.

The Monaco GP is the most BORING race in the calendar. The scenery is great, but it's almost impossible to overtake. Making it a boring, tedious race, where all the cars drive round in formation like a safety car lap. Yuk!

As a fan of many years The Monaco Grand Prix is one my least favorite tracks. It's almost impossible to pass, the qualify session basically decides how the race will end unless there are car issues, mistakes done by the drivers or the pit crew. It's the most popular because Monaco means rich. Also because most of the drivers live there so i guess it adds some sort of a "home win" importance and value to it.

Just to add, the last monaco gp in f1 (2021) had only 1 overtake in 78 laps or so, making it one of the most boaring gp's in the F1 calendar for the past 3 years. It's not the fault of circuit. It's just because cars have become more big and wider making it more difficult for an overtake. Other tracks have the luxury of upgrading it but street tracks don't have it, specifically for the likes of monaco where there is hardly any room left . So sadly 🇲🇨monaco has passed its prime and there is a lot of uproar to find a new circuit. It's only retaining it's spot just because of it's rich history but practically its outdated . And 1 overtake in 78 laps isn't a motorsport fan expects to see after a decent payment for the tickets.

Just a few notes on this video that seems to spout misinformation in its intro - the 'Triple Crown' was only invented by the British, after one of their drivers had already won it - hence why it was named a 'Triple CROWN' and not something like 'Grand Slam'.

This video is a joke. Talking about Monaco and not talking about Airton Senna is the same thing as talking about cycling and not talking about Eddy Merckx, talking about Olympic gymnastics and not talking about Nadia Comaneci, talking about swimming and not talking about Michael Phelps and talking about surfing and not talk about Kelly Slater.

Well, I have a question: why, in some words, some random letters are silent instead of having a sole silent letter? Both in Spanish and in Portuguese, we have the "h" being silent. But in English, every letter or at least the consonants (in the case of "prix", the "x") can be silent in certain words.
