RECORDS! Monte Carlo and Adelaide, the rare double

The Monaco Grand Prix is the jewel in the Formula 1 crown, its most prestigious race on one of the toughest street circuits on the schedule.

The track on the streets of Monte Carlo was first used in 1929 and has been part of the Formula One world championship every year since 1955.

Three drivers dominated in Monaco in the years that corresponded with the Adelaide Grand Prix (1985 to 1995): Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher.
