Scot Jackie Stewart (BRM) won the 1966 Formula One Monaco Grand Prix. This race was the first World Championship event of a new era for Formula One, for which engine regulations were altered from 1.5 litres of maximum engine capacity to 3.0 litres.

Stewart dominated the race aboard his works BRM P261 and took a forty-second victory over the Ferrari 246 of Italian driver Lorenzo Bandini. It was the young Scot’s (26) second Grand Prix victory after winning the Italian Grand Prix the previous year.

Fellow Briton Graham Hill finished a lap down in third position in the second BRM P261, and the only other driver to be classified as a finisher was American driver Bob Bondurant driving a BRM P261 entered privately by Team Chamaco Collect (picture here-under).
