Alejandro Agag, CEO of Formula E Holdings commented "Monte Carlo is known for staging one of the most prestigious motorsport events in the world so we’re honored that Prince Albert has agreed to let Formula E race through the same streets and I know the event is going to be a great spectacle." The eagerly anticipated race will take place on Monaco’s famous Grand Prix circuit, which includes instantly recognizable highlights such as the famous ‘hairpin’ bend.
