The 2022 Monaco Grand Prix will fall into line with the other races on the calendar and take place over three days rather than its traditional four, Formula One president Stefano Domenicali announced on Wednesday.
The Monaco GP, which was first run in 1929 and has been ever-present since the inception of the F1 world championship in 1950, has traditionally held practice on the Thursday with a day off on Friday before the race weekend, rather than simply running Friday to Sunday like the other events.
“Monaco will take place over three days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, directly, instead of Thursday, break on Friday, then Saturday and Sunday,” Domenicali told CNN.
The Monaco GP was historically held around the Christian feast day of the Ascension when Thursday was a public holiday, and hence it was possible to use the public roads that make the circuit so special.
It had the added bonus for the local traders of luring the public to the Principality for four days rather than three.
It retained the practice even after the race no longer coincided with the Ascension.
Domenicali also confirmed that the French Grand Prix would remain on the calendar which would be expanded to a record 23 races, one more than this season.
The 2022 calendar will officially be announced at the World Motorsport Council on October 15.
However, a first draft of the calendar has been leaked, revealing it will consist of 23 races as expected, starting in Bahrain and ending in Abu Dhabi.
The sport has long been clear that it wants next season to be the longest ever after plans to have 23 rounds this year were thwarted by the global pandemic.
