How to watch 2021 Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix live in Canada

The glitz and glamour of the Monaco F1 Grand Prix returns for the first time since 2019.

The global pandemic meant the famed Monaco Grand Prix was not held last year for the first time since 1954. But it returns in all its glory this weekend for the fifth round of the 2021 championship.

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton recorded his 98th career win in Spain last round to extend his championship lead over Max Verstappen to 14 points. Red Bull will be desperate to hit back on a tight street circuit where they last won in 2018 with Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo behind the wheel.

Canadian Lance Stroll has picked up 5 points to date in his Aston Martin, 11th in the standings. He starts from 13th on the grid in Monaco. Compatriot Nicholas Latifi is still chasing his first points for Williams in 2021. He will line up in 18th.

Who will win the Monaco Grand Prix?

The drivers will be relishing a return to this iconic street circuit following its cancellation last year. And a limited number of fans will be able to attend, adding a carnival atmosphere to this famous race.

Hamilton has won three of the four races so far this season, with Dutchman Verstappen crossing first in the Italian Grand Prix last month. It has been a thrilling duel so far but Hamilton is starting to re-establish his dominance.

Key stats for the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Interestingly, each driver has won when the other has started in pole position. Hamilton had to overtake Verstappen for his triumphs in both Portugal and Spain.

Due to the difficulty of overtaking on such a tight track, qualifying is again crucial. Local driver Charles Leclerc upset the form book to grab pole for Ferrari. Verstappen will line up second ahead of Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas. Hamilton qualified a disappointing seventh overall and will require an extraordinary drive to get on the podium.

We expect the aggressive Verstappen will take on Leclerc at the first corner and force his way to the front. From there he can control the race and go on to take the chequered flag, narrowing the gap to his arch-rival Hamilton in the championship standings.
