Autosport Awards: Monaco Grand Prix receives Grant Award

This year's second Gregor Grant Award at the 2019 Autosport Awards has been presented to the Monaco Grand Prix.

Autosport Awards: Monaco Grand Prix receives Grant Award

The award celebrates the 90th anniversary of Formula 1's most prestigious event, which was first run in 1929 on the Circuit de Monaco. Monaco has hosted 66 grands prix since 1950 - and every year without exception since '55 - and forms part of the 'Triple Crown' of motorsport alongside the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Indianapolis 500.

Ayrton Senna holds the record for the most victories at Monaco with six, ahead of Graham Hill ­– who won the race five times in the '60s. The Award was presented to Albert II of Monaco by three-time Monaco GP winner Sir Jackie Stewart.

"Monaco is the one to win," said Stewart. "If you haven't won at Monaco, there's something wrong with your CV! It's the most glamorous, the most exciting [race]."

Collecting the Award, Albert II of Monaco said: "It's a great privilege. I knew what Jackie thought of this [race], but it's so great to hear how much it means not only to Formula 1 but the whole of motorsport.

"The history and everything that makes this grand prix so special, we're so proud to be able to contribute [to Monaco's history]."

Monaco GP winner David Coulthard was also present and spoke about the 'magic' of Monaco. 
"I've been living there for 23 years and racing for 18, but there's adrenaline we're all addicted to in motorsport and there's nothing more thrilling than going to Casino Square at full speed in a Formula 1 car."

This year's race was won by Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton less than a week after the death of the team's non-executive chairman and three-time F1 world champion Niki Lauda.

The 2019 Autosport Awards will be broadcast on Sky Sports F1 at 9pm on Monday December 9.

Max Verstappen’s star quality in Formula 1 is clear. Now equipped with a Red Bull car that is, right now, the world title favourite and the experience to support his talent, could 2021 be the Dutchman’s year to topple the dominant force of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes?

When a journeyman driver's F1 career lasted just 800m

Nikita Mazepin’s Formula 1 debut at the Bahrain Grand Prix lasted mere corners before he wiped himself out in a shunt, but his financial backing affords him a full season. Back in 1993 though, Marco Apicella was an F1 driver for just 800m before a first corner fracas ended his career. Here’s the story of his very short time at motorsport’s pinnacle.
