The Monaco Grad Prix is one of the most hotly anticipated races of the season, and as the cars race through the seaside principality of Monaco, millions of people tune in to watch the action unfold on TV while hundreds of thousands get to see the cars whizz past in real life from various vantage points along the track.
Every year, the race delivers thrills and spills galore. In 2019, Lewis Hamilton took the top spot on the podium but declared it was the hardest race he’d ever won. The circuit is an impressive 3.337 kilometres long and has 19 turns, and the race lasts a total of 78 laps, all of which can be nail-biting!
If you want to catch the action next time around, take a look at a few of the viewing options you can consider.
Live on TV
Every year the race is broadcast live on TV and is available on different channels across the globe. In the UK, you can catch it on Sky Sports F1. Elsewhere, you’ll simply have to do your research and see whether there is a live broadcast available either on a free-to-play channel or a pay-per-view. Many sports clubs and pubs also air the race, so you may well be able to watch it in your favourite bar, too.
Live in Monaco
If you’re lucky enough to be in Monaco at the time of the race, you can buy tickets to the various different grandstands or viewing platforms. If you are a major fan, you can buy tickets to the F1 Paddock Club Monaco, where you are not only afforded a bird’s eye view of the race and the pit lane, but you also get to rub shoulders with the biggest names of the racing world. Edge Global Events can arrange the F1 Paddock Club in Monaco, and this really is the best way to watch the main race or even one of the practice rounds.
The internet has made watching or keeping up-to-date with Grand Prix action even easier, and you will be able to find not only live streams of the race itself, but also live text commentary and live Twitter feeds that are manned by those on the ground or even in the paddock.
