Monaco Travel Information


Monaco Flag The Principality of Monaco (French: Principauté de Monaco; Monégasque: Principatu de Múnegu; Italian: Principato di Monaco; Occitan: Principat de Mónegue) is a small country in southwestern Europe. It surrounded on three sides by France, but has a coast on the Mediterranean Sea.

As of 2009, the population of Monaco was estimated as being 32,965. The country is a city state, and the capital is hence coterminus with the entire country. The two most well-known areas within the country are Monaco-Ville, the original fortified town, and Monte Carlo (French: Monte-Carlo; Monégasque: Monte-Carlu; Occitan: Montcarles) which is the most heavily populated administrative area ("quartier") of the city state.

Product Description:
Featuring some of F1's biggest stars, including Bernie Ecclestone, Nico Rosberg, Damon Hill, Ross Brawn (Schumacher's old team boss who won the race with him), and David Coulthard, as well as members of McLaren and Ferrari, Folley's book captures Monaco's, present and past, with a special focus on its most extraordinary race in 1996, when only three cars finished. An astonishing afternoon of high drama, in wet conditions, saw multiple accidents and mechanical failures eliminated favorites such as Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve, Jean Alesi, and Eddie Irvine. No Formula One race before, or since, has had fewer cars complete a grand prix and this in an era when 22 cars started. A fearless Frenchman, Olivier Panis won, and British drivers David Coulthard and Johnny Herbert finished behind him.
