The 1933 Monaco Grand Prix was a Grand Prix motor race held at the Circuit de Monaco on April 23, 1933.
This was the first Grand Prix where grid positions were decided by practice time rather than the established method of balloting. Achille Varzi and Tazio Nuvolari exchanged the lead many times during the race and the race was settled in Varzi's favour on the final lap when Nuvolari's car caught fire due to over-revving.

Famous quotes containing the words grand and/or monaco:
“Youre a grand old flag;
Youre a high-flying flag.
And forever in peace may you wave.”
—George M. Cohan (18781942)
“If there is anything so romantic as that castle-palace-fortress of Monaco I have not seen it. If there is anything more delicious than the lovely terraces and villas of Monte Carlo I do not wish to see them. There is nothing beyond the semi-tropical vegetation, the projecting promontories into the Mediterranean, the all-embracing sweep of the ocean, the olive groves, and the enchanting climate! One gets tired of the word beautiful.”
—M. E. W. Sherwood (18261903)
