    The Monaco Grand Prix has secured a new 10-year deal to remain on the Formula 1 calendar and will return to its late-May slot on the 2011 schedule.

    A recent aside from Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone suggesting the sport could do 'without' the Monte Carlo street race, which dates back to 1929, had led to widespread media coverage questioning the Monaco GP's future, despite Ecclestone underlining that he had no intention of removing the race from the schedule.

    Ecclestone and Automobile Club de Monaco president Michel Boeri met in London today and completed the new deal, which runs through to 2020. Next year's race has also been scheduled for 29 May.

    I would'nt be sad if we lose Monaco, if there is no rain, there is always a dull race.
     
  4. Disagree. Maybe it is not possible to overtake on Monaco circuit but that can be pretty much said about many other tracks.
    Monaco on the other hand has its own distinct atmosphere you can feel even thru the TV screen when watching.
    And watching the drivers push on the limit within those narrow barriers is far more entertaining than watching them plow thru the tracks in the desert.
    Seriously - Monaco FTW, one of the best circuits of all time.

    Nice history, but the last years i find it the most boring race of the season. Although Alonso made it nice to watch last time.

    Racing aside, I think it gives a test to the drivers that very few other places could dream of. It is a place where drivers can really showcase their talents.
     
  8. All those legendary tracks we've seen in our live are fading for grabs. Hope that Jean Todt, currently presiding the FIA, could someday kick him out for grabs
