Ferrari in Monaco: History and Victories Exhibition at the Prince’s Car Collection

The Car Collection of HSH the Prince of Monaco is currently hosting the Ferrari F1 in Monaco: History and Victories” exhibition until 31 August 2024. The exceptional presentation retraces the fascinating history of Scuderia Ferrari in the Principality of Monaco.

Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari and a flash of green?

Twelve Ferraris are on display, including four on loan from Ferrari’s headquarters and two which were already part of the Prince’s collection. Visitors can admire the SF90 from Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc, which he won his first two victories with at Spa and Monza in 2019.

Single-seaters driven by legends such like Michael Schumacher (models from 1997 and 2000), Niki Lauda (312 T2 driven in 1976), Gilles Villeneuve (1981), Jody Scheckter (312 T4 from 1979) are all on display.

Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari, which brought him to victory in Monaco in 2017 is also on display (Ferrari’s last victory on Monaco’s circuit). The Ferrari 625 driven by Maurice Trintignant when he won the Monaco Grand Prix in 1955 is another highlight. Amongst the sea of red racers is a car in a different hue: a green Ferrari 125, driven by Italian Luigi Villoresi in 1950!

Ferrari’s legacy in Monaco

Ferrari’s legacy in Monaco began on 21 May 1950 during the first Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix. That year, driver Alberto Ascari finished in second place at the wheel of a 125S, marking the first in a very long series of podium finishes for the Italian manufacturer.

Since then, Ferrari has achieved nine victories as well as numerous pole positions and several fastest race laps on Monaco’s circuit. To this day, Ferrari remains the only team to have competed in every Formula 1 season since the creation of the discipline in 1950.

Will Charles Leclerc’s bright-red Ferrari cross the finish line first on 26 May? Fingers crossed!
