EFG Gallery of the Month – The magic of Monaco
The Monaco Grand Prix has been the most prestigious meeting on the Formula 1 calendar for generations thanks to its tight and winding course through the principality's picturesque streets. Narrow, technical and dangerous, the circuit has only been mastered by the very best: Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost, Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Juan Manuel Fangio. From its humble beginnings in 1929 to the races of the modern times, the circuit has a knack for drawing out the magic of motor racing and can always be relied upon to throw up unexpected results. Our best racing memories are intertwined with this historic meet, whether it be Senna's victory that never was in the wet in '88 or Sir Stirling Moss fending off the Ferrari onslaught in 1961.
