The Formula One World Championship season is fully underway, with twenty-one confirmed events on the 2019 calendar, including the Grand Prix in Monaco, next-up from May 23-May 27 (Sydney time).
The Formula One championship is a nine-month celebration of the greatest motor-racing season in the world, with each Grand Prix an opportunity for the drivers to showcase their cars and skills, and you won’t miss a minute when watching it live on your TV at home, or streaming to a mobile device if you’re out and about.
2019 Monaco Grand Prix TV Guide
A symbol of excellence, the FIA Formula One World Championship travels five continents and draws a global television audience in the hundreds of millions, and this next stop on the circuit is certainly a big part of the success. The 2019 Monaco Grand Prix will be hosted at the Circuit de Monaco, and is the sixth fixture on this year’s F1 calendar.
The Grand Prix in Monaco has been held every year since 1929, and is generally regarded as one of the most prestigious events on the calendar. Last year was an exciting event for Australian fans of the Formula One, with Aussie Daniel Ricciardo leading throughout and taking out the event despite driving a car with only six out of eight gears functioning. Ricciardo was followed by Sebastian Vettel in second and Lewis Hamilton in third, each of whom will be expected to be right in the mix once again this year.
When: Thursday May 23 – Monday May 27 (Sydney time)
Where: Circuit de Monaco, Monaco
Entering 2019 Lewis Hamilton is the defending Driver’s Champion and will be looking for a repeat, but every driver and team will look to dethrone the reigning champ including local favourite Daniel Ricciardo who has teamed-up with Renault Sport. Among the other key changes to the 2019 F1 season include that driver weight will now be considered separate from the vehicle, rather than as a combined figure. Additionally fuel allowance was increased to 110kg to allow drivers to use full power at all time, and biometric gloves will transmit potentially life-saving data to the medical team at the track.

The Monaco Grand Prix offers a unique viewing experience, whether streaming the action live to your mobile phone, watching at home on a large screen, or online using your personal computer.

– The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the longest-standing Formula One races, having been held 76 times in total.
– Due to it’s tight corners and low speeds, it is the only Grand Prix to not adhere to the FIA’s minimum race distance of 305km.
– The Monaco Grand Prix has been won three times by an Australian this decade, with Mark Webber winning in 2010 and 2012 to go with Ricciardo last year.
– Held in the streets of Monaco, it is one of the most demanding tracks on the Formula One calendar.
