Motorsport: Motor racing-Formula One statistics for the Monaco Grand Prix


(Reuters) – Formula One statistics for Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix, round five of the season:

Lap distance: 3.337km. Total distance: 260.286km (78 laps)

No race in 2020.

Race lap record: One minute 14.260 seconds, Max Verstappen (Netherlands) Red Bull 2018.

Start time: 1300 GMT (1500 local)


This year’s race is the 67th edition in championship history and 78th since the first grand prix in the principality in 1929. Last year’s cancellation was the first absence since 1954.

The late triple world champion Ayrton Senna holds the record for most Monaco wins — six, including five in a row with McLaren between 1989 and 1993.

A safety car deployment is highly likely.

Lewis Hamilton won from pole in 2019 for Mercedes, his third Monaco victory.

Ferrari have won nine times in total.

In 1996, Frenchman Olivier Panis won from 14th on the starting grid — the lowest winning start position to date. Since 1950, only 10 times has the race been won by a driver starting lower than third.

Five former Monaco winners will be on Sunday’s grid: Kimi Raikkonen (2005), Fernando Alonso (2006, 2007), Hamilton (2008, 2016, 2019), Sebastian Vettel (2011, 2017), Daniel Ricciardo (2018).

Leclerc can become the first Monegasque to score points at home since Louis Chiron finished third in 1950.


Hamilton has a record 98 career victories, of which 77 have been with Mercedes, from 270 starts. He has been on the podium 169 times.

Hamilton has won three of the four races so far in 2021.

Ferrari have won 238 races since 1950, McLaren 182, Mercedes 118, Williams 114 and Red Bull 65. Former champions McLaren and Williams have not won since 2012.


Hamilton has a record 100 career poles and is the only driver to have won from pole so far this season. He has won 59 times from pole.


Hamilton is 14 points ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in the standings. The Briton’s tally of 94 is his best ever start to a season.


Williams are celebrating their 750th start this weekend.
