Circuit de Monaco is one of the oldest circuits in the Formula One calendar. The first time opened in 1929, the circuit celebrates its centenary in 2029. Being only 3.337 km (2.074 miles) long, it is also the shortest circuit in the F1 calendar.
The circuit is widely considered as the most challenging circuit in the Formula One calendar. The streets of Monaco are infamous for being too tight to race two Formula 1 cars side by side. In some places like the "Casino section," - it is hard for drivers to even get one car to turn around this very tight corner.
Being so tight and twisty makes the track also the slowest Formula 1 race in the calendar and also the only race that does not achieve the full length of more than 300 km. It is very hard to overtake during the race so the most important part of the Monaco Grand Prix weekend is always the qualification.
