The 1977 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Monaco on 22 May 1977.

Report[edit]

John Watson took his first career pole for Brabham with Jody Scheckter also on the front row and Carlos Reutemann third. It was Scheckter who got the best start to beat Watson to the first corner, with Reutemann running third in the early stages until he was passed by his teammate Niki Lauda. Watson ran second to Scheckter until mid-race when he had to retire with gearbox trouble, allowing Lauda to close in on Scheckter but the latter was flawless and held on to take his second win of the season. Lauda had to be satisfied with second, with Reutemann completing the podium.

Shadow driver Riccardo Patrese made his first career start in the race, qualifying 15th and finishing 9th. Patrese would drive in a record 257 Grands Prix (256 starts) during his career which ended after the 1993 season, a career which included winning at Monaco for Brabham in 1982.
