This infographic was put together by excellent Peter Leung on Richland F1. It covers the past seven winners of the race (and how many won from pole position), the track records, the number of gear changes per race (4,200!), as well as every turn on the legendary track, largely unchanged since its Pre War inception.

Now's the time to start booking tickets for 2014, folks.

DISCUSSION

I respect the heritage and prestige that this race has brought to Formula 1 through it's history. I understand that the tight turns and unforgiving walls still provide a great challenge to the drives, but I don't think the circuit is suited to hosting the racing spectacle of F1 anymore.

As ever, I hope this year proves me wrong, but this Grand Prix will largely be a boring parade. The drivers have become too good and there will hardly be any mistakes made aside from the first corner, which will likely be the only amusement of the race.

It's time for F1 to abandon Monaco for better circuits where the drivers can actually race against eachother, not just the walls.

Also, isn't it kind of bullshit that Monaco is guaranteed a place on the calendar every year and doesn't have to fork over the ridiculous $25 million hosting fee for the race each year (IIRC)?
