2013 F1 Monaco Grand Prix date, time, TV channel and preview: The Monaco GP returns to Circuit de Monaco on Sunday, May 26, live on NBC.
On Sunday, May 26, Formula 1 returns to one of the world’s most prestigious races on one of the most famous courses, the Circuit de Monaco, for the Monaco Grand Prix. Don’t be fooled by the beautiful scenery of hotels, casinos and the harbor along the course through the streets of Monte Carlo and La Condamine. The Monaco GP is one of the toughest for drivers, with hairpin turns and changes in elevation, and barely any room to pass. NBC airs the race live in the morning at 7:30am ET, the first time the race has been shown on live network TV. An encore showing airs on NBC Sports Network at 10:30am ET. Australia’s Mark Webber won the race from the pole position last year.
Coverage from Monaco also includes live practice and qualifying on NBC Sports Network. Practice airs live on Thursday, May 23, at 8am ET. Qualifying airs live on Saturday, May 25, at 8am ET.
Leigh Diffey calls the race with analysts David Hobbs, Steve Matchett and Will Buxton.
