Legendary technical illustrator Giorgio Piola is celebrating 50 years of attending Formula 1 races, and this career retrospective is a collection of his favourite moments from the Monaco Grand Prix.

The 1969 race in the principality was the first Piola attended in a career that has spanned more than 800 grands prix. On Thursday, Ferrari hosted a celebration of his anniversary in its motorhome.

In this exclusive insight into his time in F1, Piola explains how he earned his first job that year, the precision required to excel in Monaco, and his favourite things he has witnessed on the streets of Monte Carlo during his five decades of attending the race.
