It's the slowest Formula One race but it's also the most scenic.
The Monaco Grand Prix was held over the weekend, as tourists from around Europe watched Mark Webber win for the second time in three years. Lucky spectators also experienced one of the most unique racing tracks in the world. Held on a narrow course on the streets of Monte Carlo, tight corners and elevation changes amount to a particularly dangerous race. And only the Grand Prix does not adhere to the FIA's mandated 189.5 mile minimum race distance (Monaco's Grand Prix is 162 miles long).
Held since 1929 (although infrequently during the 1940s and 50s), it creates unmatched imagery as everyday streetscapes of Monte Carlo are transformed into a racing playground.
