This was the first of only four seasons that the Monaco Grand Prix has not been part of the World Championship. The famous race was not held at all in 1951, before returning in 1952 as a non-championship sportscar event. The Monaco Grand Prix did not run in either 1953 or ’54; however the race returned in 1955 and has not left the calendar since.
