The 1956 Monaco Grand Prix was held on May 13. The race was won by Stirling Moss in a Maserati, who led from flag to flag. Juan Manuel Fangio had problems with his original Lancia-Ferrari, but after letting Eugenio Castellotti drive his car, he took over the sister car of Peter Collins. Moss was just cruising at the end, and despite a furious comeback by Fangio, Moss was still over six seconds ahead at the flag. Jean Behra took advantage of atrition to take third in his Maserati.
