2014 Monaco Grand Prix: setting
The world’s most glamorous street race, Monaco is a circuit that takes no hostages. It’s the one that every driver on the F1 circuit desperately wants to win, for the prestige, for the prize money and for the right to be crowned honorary prince of the sovereign state. As the world’s most famous F1 circuit, Monaco’s landmarks are familiar to millions: the start at Casino Square; the long tunnel that opens out to the bay; drivers speeding past superyachts; and La Racasse, the city’s most venerable restaurant. No one asks for directions to the race course in Monaco – Monaco is the race.
