That year, driver Alberto Ascari, behind the wheel of a 125S, finished second, thus marking the first podium of a very long series for the Italian manufacturer.

Since then, Ferrari has won nine victories as well as numerous pole positions and several fastest laps on the Monaco circuit.

It also happens to be the venue for the return of RM Sotheby’s 7th biennial auction, held at the picturesque seaside Grimaldi Forum, close to the legendary circuit, parties and side-events of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique.
