Alejandro Agag has revealed plans for a 1.2-mile circuit that would turn sharp right after the start-finish straight at Ste Devote and creating a hairpin at the Nouvelle Chicane.

Short course

"It is going to be a very good layout, about two kilometers [1.2 miles]," said Agag.

As it stand Monaco is not on the calendar for the following season as the date will clash with the Monaco Historic Grand Prix. However Alejandro Agag is in talks with Paris about bringing Formula E to the streets of the capital.


"We are having discussions on which I can't go into detail," explained Agag.

"I am very optimistic about having a race in Paris in season two and if we have a race in Paris, I would like that race to be the first one of the season."
