The 1976 Monaco Grand Prix was held at the Monaco street circuit in Monaco on 30 May 1976. It was the sixth round of the 1976 Formula One season and the 34th Monaco Grand Prix. The race was contested over 78 laps of the 3.3 km circuit for a race distance of 257 kilometres.
The race was won by Scuderia Ferrari driver Niki Lauda, who had also taken pole position in his Ferrari 312T2. Lauda won by 11 seconds over Jody Scheckter driving the six-wheeled Tyrrell P34, whilst Scheckter’s teammate, Patrick Depailler, completed the podium in third.
As a consequence of the race, Niki Lauda extended his lead in the World Drivers’ Championship to 36 points over his team mate Clay Regazzoni who had retired after starting second, going off track on oil laid down when James Hunt retired with a blown engine on lap 25, climbing back to third before crashing.
