The 1958 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on 18 May 1958 at Monaco.

Race report

Vanwall and BRM returned after their Argentine absence and so Stirling Moss went back to his regular drive. In his place with the new 2000cc engined Cooper was French driver Maurice Trintignant. Jean Behra led until his brakes failed, and then Mike Hawthorn swept by in the Ferrari. Moss had been duelling with him throughout the race until he retired on lap 38, and Hawthorn followed suit on lap 47 with a broken fuel pump. Stuart Lewis-Evans and Tony Brooks retired, leaving Trintignant to lead home by some 20 seconds giving Cooper its second race win of the year.
