Just a few days after the Spanish Grand Prix, Formula 1 makes a quick return to action this weekend as the circus touches down in Monaco.

The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most historic races on the calendar and first took place all the way back in 1929, long before the sport became an official World Championship in 1950.

Of F1's current drivers, Lewis Hamilton is the most successful around Monte Carlo, having won the event on three occasions.

Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel have both being victorious twice, while Max Verstappen claimed his debut win at the track in 2021.

Can he repeat that success in 2022, or will title rival Charles Leclerc manage to reverse the bad luck he has previously experienced at his home race?

When is the 2022 Monaco GP?

The 2022 Monaco Grand Prix will be held across the weekend of 27-29 May.

In the past, the format has looked a little different at Monaco, with Free Practice being held on Thursday rather than Friday.

However, the event will follow the schedule of other races in 2022, with two practice sessions held on Friday, followed by FP3 and qualifying on Saturday, and the main event on Sunday.

How many laps is the Monaco GP?

The race will take place over 78 laps of the 3.337-kilometre Circuit de Monaco, with a maximum race time of two hours if there are any stoppages or delays.

What time does the Monaco GP start?

Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix will start at 15:00 local time (14:00 BST).
