The race is known for its glitz and glamour, with celebrities and high-profile guests attending each year. The circuit itself is only 2.07 miles (3.34 km) long, but it features many tight corners and elevation changes, making it a difficult and technical track to navigate. The race is also unique in that it takes place during the day on Sunday, but the practice sessions and qualifying rounds are held on Thursday and Saturday. The Monaco Grand Prix is not only a test of skill for the drivers, but also a test of strategy for the teams. Overtaking is notoriously difficult on the narrow circuit, so teams must plan their pit stops and tyre changes carefully to gain an advantage over their rivals. Overall, the Monaco Grand Prix is a thrilling and exciting event that showcases the very best of Formula One racing. Its unique location and challenging circuit make it a must-see for motorsport fans around the world.
