1931 - Chiron wins home race
The Monaco Grand Prix didn’t actually become part of the World Drivers’ Championship until 1950, but the race still boasted more than twenty years of history before then.
In 1931, Louis Chiron became the only native of Monaco ever to win the grand prix, finishing several minutes ahead of Luigi Fagioli’s second placed Maserati.
24 years later - at the age of 55 - Chiron landed another record, becoming the oldest driver to complete the Monte Carlo race, finishing five laps down in sixth. Pioneer.
