Monaco Grand Prix: Times, schedule, how to watch, weather and lap record

One of the highlights of the motorsport calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix is hailed as the crown jewel of Formula 1.

The famous street circuit has been hosting F1 races since the 1950s and remains a star attraction, even if overtaking is an incredibly difficult challenge around the narrow circuit.

In last year's event, Max Verstappen survived a mid-race downpour to win comfortably from Fernando Alonso.
