Despite being the most prestigious Grand Prix, Monaco has proven to be the most boring when it comes to on-track action

Research by BonusCodeBets has revealed that Monaco has significantly fewer overtakes of any circuit on the F1 calendar in the last 10 years.

Monaco has an average of 10 on-track* overtakes per race made after the first lap with zero happening in the 2021 Grand Prix.

Analysis of the last 10 seasons revealed that there have been 101 on-track overtakes after the first lap at Monaco in the last 10 years, which is significantly less than the highest total overtakes in one race, 170, in China 2016.

After Monaco, Emilia-Romagna has the lowest average of on-track overtakes per race at 23.

Bahrain has the most overtakes; there has been 758 in the last 10 years, averaging at 69 per race.

Last season, there were 807 overtakes across the campaign which is a massive decrease from 2011, when there were 1249. There was a significant drop in 2014 to 871 from 1029 in 2015, when cars started to get larger.

Some tracks that are no longer part of the calendar have a large number of average overtakes per race; South Korea (53), India (40), Germany (70), China (72), Turkey (67), Portugal (57)

Canada makes a return to the 2022 calendar, averaging 45 in nine races with a total of 407 across 10 years.

A BonusCodeBets spokesperson has said: “Unless you’re on pole position heading into Monaco, you can forget about winning the race as it just averages 10 overtakes per race, the lowest of any track in the last 10 years.

“Viewers could be set for a snooze-fest on Sunday after zero overtakes happened after the first lap in 2021. The action lives elsewhere in Turkey (67 average overtakes per race), Bahrain (69), Germany (70) and China (72).”
