This will be the 73rd running of this event, since it started in 1929 but it was been cancel in several opportunities.

Prince Pierre, on April 14th, 1929, inaugurated the circuit of the 1st Grand Prix of Monaco with a lap of honour in a Torpedo Voisin car driven by the director of the circuit, Charles Faroux. The first Grand Prix of Monaco was won by William Grover-Williams, Bugatti 35 B car in 3h 56'11' with an average speed of 80.194 km/h. Then followed by others great names like Schumacher, Senna (won it 6 times), Prost, Fangio, Graham Hill. On April 19th, 1932, Captain Sir Malcom Campbell, the man who just had broken the world speed record with 408.621 km per hour, opened the 2nd Grand Prix of Monaco in a superb Torpedo Rolls Royce. For several years the Grand Prix did not take place because of economic reasons and a lack of participants.
