Long straights, hard braking zones, unforgiving walls... there is a good reason why the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is regarded as one of the toughest, yet most exhilarating circuits on the F1 calendar.

Home of the Canadian Grand Prix since 1978, the venue in Montreal is known for its picturesque inner-city setting, simple yet challenging layout and ability to break cars in a way no other circuit can muster.

For that reason, it has played host to some classic races in the past, punished those who got it wrong - particularly at the infamous 'Wall of Champions' - and rewarded those who kept it clean, such as one-time GP winners Jean Alesi and Robert Kubica.

Once more, Crash.net has created this handy factsheet for the Monaco Grand Prix detailing the location, key facts and a look back at a selection of those memorable moments in the race's history.

The seventh in a series of factsheets we will be producing ahead of each F1 Grand Prix this season, be sure to collect them all and make sure you share them via Twitter and Facebook, and use the embedding code too!
