The eighth calendar event of the 2024 F1 season heads to Monaco this weekend. The 10 teams, with 2 drivers each, will be at the Circuit De Monaco, widely considered one of the sport’s most famous, given that it is a street circuit of 3.337 km with 19 bends, that the drivers navigate for 78 laps for a total of 260.286 km.

The race will be held on May 26 at 6.30 pm (IST), with the practice sessions and Qualifying slated for May 24 and 25. All the sessions can be streamed live on FanCode with OTTplay Premium. What makes the Monaco Grand Prix challenging, is that the narrow streets offer very few passing opportunities, with the driver in pole position most likely to finish it first. Currently Lewis Hamilton holds the record for the fastest lap in Monaco.
