Juan Manuel Fangio Memorial (1 Blvd. Albert 1er, Monte-Carlo, Monaco) – this statue depicts the Argentine native & five-time Formula 1 champion racer standing next to his Mercedes-Benz race car. Fangio’s Monaco Grand Prix victory in 1950, along with Rainier III’s marriage to Hollywood actress Grace Kelly, helped transform the principality’s image into a jet setter destination by that decade.
