Following the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix due to flooding in the region, the 2023 F1 season resumes with the Monaco Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen arrives into the weekend with a 14-point lead over teammate Sergio Perez in the World Championship, but the Mexican – known for his success at street tracks – claimed victory when the sport last visited Monte Carlo in 2022.
Will Red Bull continue their run of success this time around, or can any of their rivals pose a challenge?
The weekend will follow the usual format, with two practice sessions taking place on Friday. FP1 is scheduled for 12:30 UK time, with FP2 following at 16:00.
On Saturday, FP3 will be held at 11:30 UK time, ahead of qualifying
at 15:00. This will determine the grid for Sunday's 78-lap Monaco Grand
Prix, which starts at 14:00.
