This teeny-tiny article needs some work. You can help us by expanding it.

Monaco Grand Prix is a formula one racing game by Ubisoft, released for the Sega Dreamcast as a launch title for the console in the US and Europe, though can also be found on other consoles.

It is an awkwardly named game - it is a sequel to the PC game F1 Racing Simulation (later known as Racing Simulation 1). In Japan and mainland Europe it is known as Monaco Grand Prix: Racing Simulation 2, indicating it is a direct sequel. However, this excludes the United Kingdom, which knows the game as Racing Simulation: Monaco Grand Prix, and Germany, which knows it as Racing Simulation 2. In the Americas, it is merely Monaco Grand Prix. None of these names should be confused with Monaco GP, a much earlier arcade game developed by Sega which went on to have several sequels.

Gameplay

Tracks

Despite calling itself Monaco Grand Prix, the game features a wide variety of tracks based on the Formula 1 layouts of the era. None of the circuits use their official names, and most of the branding is removed.
