The Monaco Grand Prix 2015 will be held May 21st-May 24th 2015 at the Circuit de Monaco. There have been a range of past Monaco Grand Prix winners including Nico Rosberg who won in 2014 and 2013, Mark Webber who won in 2012 and 2010 and Sebastian Vettel who won in 2011. The driver with the most Monaco wins is Ayrton Senna who won six times (1987, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993).
The 2015 season for Formula One racing will be its 66th season. And with a new season, there will be several new changes for not only the Monaco Grand Prix 2015 but the season in general as well.
The first change that Formula One fans will see is that there will be new team and driver changes. The Honda company will return as an engine supplier for McLaren. They will be providing McLaren with V6 engines as well as Energy Recovery System package. Honda had been the previous engine supplier for McLaren from 1988 until 1992. Another change to the engine suppliers is that Lotus will end their partnership with Renault and instead partner with Mercedes.
There will also be calendar and rule changes for 2015. For the calendar changes, there will be changes for the America, Mexican, German, Indian and Baku. Baku will be added to the calendar in 2015. The America race will be in New York City and the Mexican GP will be added to 2015 for the first time since 1992 at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. The German Grand Prix will return to Nurburgring and the Indian Grand Prix will return after being absent for a year.
When it comes to rule changes, there is a change to the number of power units that a F1 driver is able to use per season. That number was five and is being reduced to four in 2015. There is also a change to how the race is restarted once the safety car is on the circuit. The way that it is set now, the restart is single file and the pace is determined by the driver that is in the lead at the time. However, with the new season, that will all change as now the drivers will have a standing restart that is now controlled by the race director.
Another aspect of the Monaco Grand Prix 2015 that should be addressed is the seating at the Circuit de Monaco. It is important to note that there will only be 37,000 grandstand seats that will be available for the race in 2015. You do have the option of selecting tickets that are just for one day or your can choose weekend or three day ticket options. Weekends are Saturday and Sunday only while three day tickets also include Friday. The areas that have the largest grandstands are the section of the swimming pool and the harbour area.
