Can Monaco stay on the F1 calendar post-2025?

OPINION: The 2024 Monaco Grand Prix was a feel-good story thanks to Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, but the racing action was again completely absent. With the race’s contract up for renewal next year, now’s the perfect time to ask if bolder change is needed to save it, given in many ways Monaco has lost what once made it so special

Imagine that Max Verstappen had led all 78 laps of Formula 2-like pace in dominating the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix. What saved the weekend was Charles Leclerc’s emotional dream-sealing, wrapped in the tension of historical Ferrari failure here.

The home hero did all he could and more – changes in mentality and car set-up at critical times vital to his glorious victory. And the instant red flag removed any chance of a botched pitstop or strategy call thwarting him once again on the streets he knows so well.
