2024 Monaco Grand Prix; TV Schedule and Coverage

2024 Monaco Grand Prix

The 2024 Monaco Grand Prix is set to run on May 26th, 2024. We have the TV schedule and coverage for race weekend for you here. The famous Formula 1 race covers 78 laps over the 3.337 km Circuit de Monaco located in Monte Carlo on Sunday. During race weekend, there are three practices for the drivers that fans can enjoy along with a full schedule of official and unofficial activities across the city. 

What Time Does the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix Take Place? 

The race traditionally starts at 3PM local time in Monaco. If you are in the United States, this puts the start at 9 a.m. Eastern Time and 6am Pacific time. So as usual for sports fans on the West Coast, you have to DVR/record the event in case you oversleep, but nothing unusual from my experience. I find it’s best to just wake up and watch the event then take a nap later if I stayed up late. 

What TV Channels is the Monaco Grand Prix 2024 on? 

For 2024, the Monaco Grand Prix TV coverage in the United States will be on ABC and ESPN+. Since the ABC and ESPN networks all became one under the same ownership group, you can see some adjustments on race day. ABC is the flagship channel for most championship events for U.S. broadcasts though. If you live in the U.K., Sky Sports F1 is the channel for the race. For Canadian fans, it will be on TSN.

What’s so cool about the Monaco Grand Prix?

So, if you are an American race fan who watches NASCAR every week, you might not be as familiar with the Monaco Grand Prix and other Formula 1 races. Well, Monaco is just a cool race. It is considered to be the most challenging on the Formula 1 racing circuit that is run on the streets of Monaco. The first Monaco Grand Prix took place on April 14th, 1929. Since then, we have seen race speeds increase over years to almost 90 MPH (140+km/hr). I don’t know about you, but I have been to Monaco twice now. It still feels WAY too fast to me. But the pros handle the tight, twisty course pretty easy. 

That, and if you are one of the lucky people to make it to the race, the odds are you will run into no less than five people you recognize from being either 1 – Super Rich, 2 – Super Famous, or 3 – Both. No biggie in Monte Carlo. Just act like you belong (and dress to fit in with everyone else). If you are looking to make a last-minute reservation in the city…it will cost you. If you can get a ticket and hotel, expect it will run north of $10,000 USD or more. That is for a low-end hotel too. 

Enjoy the race! Along with the Indy 500 and 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Monaco Grand Prix is the third leg of the Formula 1 Triple Crown of racing. To date, the only person to win all three races is British racer, Graham Hill.
