The Monaco Grand Prix is the crown jewel of Formula One motor racing. It was part of the inaugural Formula One World Championship season.
The 1950 Monaco Grand Prix was won by Juan Manuel Fangio in his Alfa Romeo. Jack Brabham scored his maiden grand prix win here on board a green Cooper in 1959. In 1961, Stirling Moss won in his Lotus over a trio of shark-nose Ferrari 156 led by Californian Richie Ginther. Three American drivers were in the top five in this race.
Patrick Depailler, Riccardo Patrese, Olivier Panis and Jarno Trulli all scored their maiden grand prix wins in Monte Carlo.
Graham Hill was the original “Mr. Monaco.” His five race wins here were matched by Michael Schumacher, and surpassed only by Ayrton Senna.
Carefully selected images from the archives of Grand Prix Photo are accompanied by informative captions to enhance your enthusiasm of grand prix racing’s rich history.

Masten Gregory. “The Kansas City Flash”. His third place finish in his Grand Prix debut at Monaco in 1957 is the first podium appearance in F1 by an American driver. The season saw him race in only four of the eight events but he still managed to finish sixth in the championship, all this in Mimmo Dei’s privately entered Maserati 250F.
Gregory’s first international success earlier in the year was victory in the Buenos Aires 1000km. He also won the 1961 Nurburgring 1000km. His 1965 Le Mans 24 Hours victory with Jochen Rindt in a NART-Ferrari was the first win for an American owned team and remains to this day the last for the prancing horse in the French classic.
Heir to an insurance fortune Gregory became famous for his policy of bailing out of crashing cars.
