All the winners of the Monaco GP: the crown of F1

When a driver is asked about his favorite circuit, there is a small group of tracks that are always among the answers, but Monaco shares tastes with others such as Silverstone, Suzuka, Spa or Monza.

However, if you were wondering which race you would like to win, many would say Monaco. The historic street layout is one of the longest on the calendar, second only to Great Britain and Italy in number of grands prix. It combines legend, glamour, a multitude of peculiarities and the best have won there.

It is not the first place where a championship round was held (it was Silverstone) nor does it have a curve like the one at Eau Rouge in Spa, nor does it have the fans that year after year congregate in Monza and multiply on the main straight as finish the race.

But it is Monaco and it is unique.

In fact, in that Triple Crown that everyone dreams of and that Fernando Alonso pursues and longs for, the F1 test that must be won is Monte Carlo. The Indianapolis 500, the 24 Hours of Le Mans… and the Monaco GP.

We remember the “kings” who can boast of having that crown. Many were not world champions, but in history they remained as winners of the grand prize for excellence in the highest category.

Jarno Trulli has only won once in Formula 1 and honestly, he couldn’t have picked a better place. He couldn’t hide his joy after the race, or during the podium ceremony… or in the press room. He did it with Renault in 2004.

Montoya also has two wins at Indianapolis, so he would only have the 24 Hours of Le Mans left. In Monaco he won in 2003, with Williams. In the photo with two other drivers who won there, Kimi Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher.

Formula 1 never gave the great Gilles Villeneuve a title, but it did win in Monaco. It was, naturally, with Ferrari, in 1981. He would also win the next race, in Spain, but that year he could only finish 7th.

The last of the drivers who “only” have a victory in Monaco. Brabham did it with the Cooper T51-Climax, in 1959, and there he premiered his record of victories, which later were 14 in Formula 1. That year he would win his first world championship.

Sebastian Vettel (2)

20 / 35
The German took advantage of his triumphant time at Red Bull to take victory in the Principality. But he only did it once, in 2011, a season in which he won 11 races. In 2017, taking advantage of the power of Ferrari and a strategy in his favor, he added his second victory there.

Mark Webber (2)

21 / 35
Webber was in all four of Red Bull’s triumphant seasons, but all the titles went to Vettel. However, Mark adapted better to the Principality and scored two wins there, in 2010 and 2012. These are two of his nine F1 victories. And he celebrated them with a swim in the pool, almost nothing.

Ferdinand Alonso (2)

Fernando Alonso (2)

Alonso’s first triumph in Monaco was in 2006, when he would end up winning his second world championship. He did it with Renault, and only a year later he repeated it with McLaren. In the photo he appears accompanied by Montoya and a David Coulthard who wears a Superman cape sponsored by Red Bull.

If in the gallery we have pointed out cases of drivers who have only won once in F1 and it was in Monaco, this Frenchman only achieved two wins and both were in Monte Carlo. It was in 1955 (second edition of the race in the Formula 1 world championship) and in 1958.

Lewis Hamilton (3)

Lewis Hamilton (3)

28 / 35

Hamilton’s is a similar case to Vettel’s. He has seven world championships and many seasons he has enjoyed the best car, but he always won less than his partner in the brilliant era of Mercedes. Lewis won in 2008 with the McLaren and in 2016 he found a victory that Red Bull threw away. In 2019, dominating from start to finish despite suffering tire problems, he won for the third time on the streets of the Principality.

Nico Rosberg (3)

Rosberg, unlike Hamilton, did take advantage of the golden years of Mercedes in Monaco. He collected three wins, in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and he literally did it at home.

Jackie Stewart (3)

Jackie Stewart (3)

Like Rosberg, Stewart has a hattrick in Monaco. He is pictured with his wife Helen after his 1971 win, quietly celebrating as he watches Monaco from the balcony. He would also win in 1973 and had won in 1966. That year he was champion, as well as in 1973 and 1969.

Moss won Monaco in 1956, 1960 and 1961. The first was with Maserati and the other two with Lotus. In the photo he appears with the Lotus 18 in 1961. He was not world champion but he shone in Monte Carlo.

Graham Hill (5)

34 / 35
Gran Hill is the only one that can boast of having won at Indianapolis, Le Mans and Monaco. In the principality he did it no less than five times. Here in 1958, but that day he did not win. He did it in 1963, 1964, 1965, 1968 and 1969, the first three with BMR and the last two with Lotus.

Ayrton Senna (6)

35 / 35
Owner and lord of Monaco, everyone will remember his exhibition in 1984 in the rain, although in that case, and many believe that unfairly, he does not appear as the winner. He had to wait until 1987 to win there, and then he would do it from 1989 to 1993 without stopping, always with McLaren. In the photo, he celebrates the penultimate with team boss Ron Dennis in 1992.
