1997 Monaco Grand Prix

The 1997 Monaco Grand Prix (formally the LV Grand Prix de Monaco) was a Formula One race held on 11 May 1997 at the Circuit de Monaco, Monte Carlo, Monaco. It was the fifth round of the 1997 Formula One season. The 62-lap race was won by Michael Schumacher, driving a Ferrari, after starting from second position. Rubens Barrichello, who started from tenth position, finished second in a Stewart-Ford, with Eddie Irvine third in the other Ferrari. The win enabled Schumacher to take over the lead of the World Drivers' Championship from Williams driver Jacques Villeneuve, and Ferrari to take over the lead of the Constructors' Championship from Williams.

Heinz-Harald Frentzen, driving for Williams, started from pole position ahead of Schumacher. Frentzen and team-mate Villeneuve made poor starts, and both retired from the race in separate accidents. Schumacher won by some 53 seconds from Barrichello, who scored the first podium for the Stewart team in only their fifth Grand Prix. The race had been scheduled for 78 laps, but rainy conditions meant that only 62 laps were run before the two-hour time limit was reached.
