Monaco Grand Prix 2023: How to watch F1 live on TV and online

After the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix was understandably called off due to mass flooding in the region, F1 heads to Monaco as it begins in tour of Europe.

The Miami Grand Prix saw Max Verstappen put the manners on Sergio Perez as the flying Dutchman came from ninth on the grid to overtake his teammate and win the race. After five races of the season, it’s looking very much as the race for the championship will be an intra-team battle between the Red Bull drivers.

But, Monaco is a challenging circuit where the slightest mistake can have massive ramifications between the tight and twisting barriers of the circuit. Last year saw current street king Sergio Perez win the race after what emerged later to be rather controversial circumstances after he crashed out in qualifying.

Ferrari will be looking to start their season, and in Charles Leclerc they have a driver that’s very much capable of putting his car on pole position in what is technically his home race. Other contenders include Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso, who will be hoping this will be one of the races where the difference between Red Bull’s pace and the rest of the field will be reduced.

Mercedes are bringing an update car to Monaco, ditching their experimental no sidepods design for a look that’s more conventional. With Lewis Hamilton close to signing a contract extension, might a good performance in the Principality convince him that Mercedes is the place to stay?

Expect the midfield to close up even closer for what could be a tight battle across the weekend. The most exciting part of the Monaco Grand Prix tends to be the qualifying session itself rather than the race, so for those looking to catch the action on this Bank Holiday Weekend, here’s how to watch the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix.
