The Monaco Grand Prix is set to remain on the Formula 1 calendar amid uncertainty surrounding the historic race, RacingNews365.com understands.

The future of the race, which is one of the oldest alongside Silverstone and Monza, was in doubt as the 2022 running was the last held under the current deal.

Under those terms, the circuit retained the broadcasting rights and event signage and venue sponsor revenues. This led to a clash between F1 official partners Rolex and Monaco's own sponsor TAG Heuer, and is believed to now have been rectified.

Documents seen by RacingNews365.com indicate the Grand Prix will be held next year on the weekend of the 25th - 28th May.

Ticket prices inflated by up to 30%

The Monaco Grand Prix was one of the cheapest races to attend on the calendar for fans, but under the new terms tickets will increase by up to 30% year-on-year.

Where the circuit previously offered 'Silver' and 'Gold' grandstand packages, for 2023 they will only be offering the latter.

Those who purchase Casino grandstand (Turn 4) tickets will be expected to pay almost €1,400 for three-day ticket in 2023, versus €1,050 in 2022.

The cheapest weekend grandstand ticket will be €700 for a seat along the start/finish straight. For Friday only they have increased from €110 in 2022 to €150 in 2023.
