The 2024 Monaco Grand Prix takes place over 78 laps of the 3.337-kilometre Circuit de Monaco.

'Iconic' may be an oft overused word, but when it comes to the Monaco Grand Prix, it's the perfect adjective. The sight of a fleet of F1 cars speeding along past the superyachts of the rich and famous remains a truly jaw-dropping one and it's understandable why so many casual motor sport fans make the Monaco GP the one race they'll be sure to tune into each year.

The on-track features are as memorable as those off it, with the tunnel, Loews hairpin and La Rascasse corner all singed in the minds of generations of F1 fans. True, the narrow street circuit doesn't always lend itself to thrilling races, with scant chance for overtaking. But that only makes it more impressive when a driver does dare to make a move — Nigel Mansell passing Alain Prost in 1991 being a prime example.

Monaco Grand Prix FAQ

So, that's how to watch the Monaco Grand Prix and all the race timings sorted. Now here's an F1 Monaco FAQ for everything else you want to know about the upcoming race.

When is the next race?

The 2024 Canadian GP follows the Monaco GP. There's a two-week gap between race weekends, with the next Grand Prix taking place at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal on Sunday, June 9.

Who won the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix?

Red Bull's Max Verstappen won the 2023 Monaco GP, finishing with a time of 1:48:51.980.

It was the Dutch driver's second successive GP win on his way to a record 11-win streak. It was also his second career victory at Monte Carlo. Fernando Alonso finished in P2, with Esteban Ocon enjoying only his second ever podium finish in third.

What is the lap record at Monaco Grand Prix?

Lewis Hamilton put in a blistering lap of 1:12.909 at the Circuit de Monaco to set the record during the 2021 season.

Monaco Grand Prix winners

Having been run since 1929, the list of Monaco Grand Prix winners reads like a who's who of the all time great Formula 1 drivers.

Brazilian legend Ayrton Senna remains the most prolific winner, taking the title six times including five consecutive victories from 1989 to 1993. His untimely death the very next year stopped him from inevitably adding more.

He overtook the previous record of five wins, all in the 1960s, set by British driver Graham Hill. Michael Schumacher came close to matching Senna, but finished with five himself.

Red Bull currently has a stranglehold at Monaco, winning the last three races: twice by Max Verstappen and once by Sergio Perez.
