Following the processional Monaco Grand Prix, a debate sparked over Monaco's value to the Formula 1 race calendar.

For the first time in F1 history, the top 10 order at the start of the grand prix remained unchanged at the chequered flag as cars struggled to overtake around the narrow circuit.

Making manoeuvres has always been a highly difficult task at Monaco, however it was highlighted by reigning world champion Max Verstappen that the challenge has increased in recent years due to the cars becoming wider.

RacingNews365 asked you, the fans, if Monaco is still worthy of a spot on the calendar going forward.

The result is a very close one - 48 per cent of respondents answered that it it deserving of a slot due to its historic significance.

However, 47 per cent think that the track has become too outdated for the modern era of F1.
