While the Monaco Grand Prix is not guaranteed to be on the calendar for the next few seasons, Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri) admitted that it would be a shock if the legendary course disappeared.
With the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 500 Miles of Indianapolis, it is part of the “Triple Crown” of motorsport, and only Graham Hill has managed to win these three legendary races. But the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix is not guaranteed to be on the calendar for the next seasons, due to the increase in the number of races (arrival of Las Vegas and Qatar), while F1 leaders have set the limit at 24 Grands Prix per season. Nothing is yet defined and the organizers of the Grand Prix still hope to sign a new contract of three or five years, but in the meantime, Pierre Gasly has designated himself in favor of the Monegasque GP.
Gasly: ”Everyone has already heard of Monaco”
“It would be a bit of a shock if Monaco were removed from the calendar. It is probably the most iconic race in the world. Speaking to non-F1 fans, everyone has heard of Monaco for a variety of reasons, whether it’s racing, whether it’s party-related, whether it’s all the action happening around the Grand Price. It’s a very iconic weekend. I think, and I really hope, that we will experience it as drivers, because it is probably the most difficult track of the season, the most difficult, and it is my favorite. Obviously, I have a very special attachment to these courses. Spa and Monaco are my two favorite tracks. I think they are part of the history and DNA of Formula 1 and should be on the calendar every year. We know F1 these days, there’s a lot involved in how you plan the whole season, so we’ll see what happens. But personally, I really hope we can keep them for the next few years,” the AlphaTauri rider named at Sports car. Pierre Gasly will contest the fourth Monaco Grand Prix of his career on May 29, and hopes to finish once again in the points, he who finished 7th in 2018, 5th in 2019 and 6th last year.
