In the final-moments of Q3, Red Bull's Max Verstappen took the pole position in a shocking performance. Fernando Alonso had taken the top spot right before that, but it wasn't meant to be. Team Mercedes' new car wasn't exactly shown off, as Lewis Hamilton had a rough day, taking 6th on the grid.

In practice 1, though, Lewis did look more comfortable with his car. In a bit of late-breaking news, F1 officially announced "Charles Leclerc has been handed a three-place grid penalty for impeding Norris."

Full schedule is below, and lights are out at the Monaco Grand Prix at 9 a.m. ET / 6 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. BST / 12 a.m. AEDT today (Sunday, May 28). Make sure you don't miss a second of it by watching a Monaco Grand Prix live stream — potentially for FREE.

FREE Monaco Grand Prix live streams

How to watch the 2023 F1 Monaco Grand Prix live stream for FREE

If you're lucky enough to live in Austria or Luxembourg then you can enjoy every second of the F1 Monaco Grand Prix live stream for FREE. And this is one of the weekends where Americans can watch for free too. 

That's because the free-to-air RTL Zwee in Luxembourg will be showing every session of the Grand Prix, as will ServusTV in Austria. And on ABC in the US, if you have one of the best antennas

But what if you're usually based in one of those countries but aren't at home for the Monaco Grand Prix live stream? Maybe you're on holiday and don't want to spend money on pay TV in another country, when you'd usually be able to watch for free at home?

Don't worry — you can watch it via a VPN instead. We'll show you how to do that below.

Our favorite VPN service right now is ExpressVPN, but you'll find others in our best VPN services list.


Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Austrian service, you'd select Austria from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Servus or another website and watch the race.

As with may of the F1 races this season, the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix live stream will be shown on ABC and ESPN. Coverage will be spread across ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPNEWS, with the race itself on ABC and ESPN Plus.

There are several ways you can access ABC and ESPN — and two of them are among our picks for the best streaming services. ABC, also, can be pulled down with one of the best TV antennas.

ABC and ESPN are available through most cable packages as well as cable TV replacement services, including Sling TV, Fubo.TV, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV.

ABC is only available for Sling Blue in select markets, though, so you may prefer Fubo for this one. As well as being available through your cable service, you can also stream the race via the ESPN app, or on the Watch section of ESPN's website. However, you'll need to authenticate with your satellite, cable or live TV provider credentials to watch any sessions. 

If you don't want to pay for live ABC and ESPN in some fashion or another, your best alternative is F1 TV Pro. This is F1's own official F1 live stream service, and as with ESPN's own coverage, it uses the feed from Sky Sports F1. 

F1 TV Pro costs $10 per month or $80 for the season, which is much better value considering there are 23 races this year. Plus you also get Formula 2, Formula 3 and Porsche Supercup races, and F1's archive of classic Grands Prix.

And remember, if you're usually based in the U.S. but aren't there at the moment, you can still watch the services you already subscribe to via a VPN such as ExpressVPN — meaning you can view the F1 Monaco Grand Prix live stream from anywhere in the world. 


If you're not already a Sling TV subscriber, you'll want Sling Orange in order to watch ESPN. This costs $40/month and includes dozens of other great channels. Recent deals have included 50% off for your first month.


Love sports? Then check out Fubo.TV. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front. The channel lineup includes ESPN and ESPN2, plus other top networks including Bravo, FX and MTV.

As usual, Sky Sports F1 will show the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix live stream, and in up to 4K resolution. 

You'll need to be a Sky Sports subscriber to watch the F1 live streams: the Sky Sports F1 channel is available for £15 per month (Sky Q is required), and there are packages available that give you lots more channels for only a bit extra. 

To follow it in ultra high-definition 4K, you'll need to pay a little more: you'll need a Sky Q set-top box or Sky Glass and a package that includes both Ultra HD and Sky Sports F1. In total, that'd come to at least £45 a month, plus a £20 one-off payment if you're not an existing subscriber.

A far cheaper option is to buy a Now Sports Pass. For all 11 Sky Sports channels, you'll want the £33.99 package for one month. There's no 4K available here, though.

Again, if you're usually based in the U.K. but are elsewhere at the moment, you can still watch the services you subscribe to by using one of the best VPN services.

TSN has the Monaco Grand Prix live stream in Canada in English, while RDS has coverage in French. F1 TV Pro also remains an option for fans. 

All sessions are broadcast on TSN, and if you receive the network through your cable or satellite provider, you can use TSN Go by signing in with your TV service credentials. Cord-cutters will want to check out TSN Direct, which comes in day- and month-long passes for $8 or $20 CAD, respectively. The TSN app will allow you to live stream the race from your phone, streaming box or supported device.

Not actually in Canada at the moment? ExpressVPN and other VPN services can help you access the services you already subscribe to.

Fox Sports has the rights to the Monaco Grand Prix live stream in Australia, which means you can watch all the action online via Foxtel

Kayo Sports is another option. This service offers new subscribers a 14-day free trial, while one-month subscriptions start at $25. 

You can also use one of the best VPN services to follow the action from your home country even when you're elsewhere.
