An unlucky day for race leaders
After a break for 4 years, Formula 1 racing returns to Monaco, but for safety reasons only with 20 cars.

In training, Hans Herrman get injured in a crash and is replaced by Andre Simon.

The Grand Prix of Monaco, which is also the Grand Prix of Europe, is characterized by the retirements of the leaders: First Fangio has to give up with a broken axle, after that, the new leader, Sterling Moss has to stop because of a blown motor and a few seconds later Ascari crashes into the harbor and can luckily swim back to land unhurt.

The outsider Trintignant is able to achieve the first of 2 wins in his carreer.
