Monaco Grand Prix live stream: preview

Could we be in line for the best Monaco Grand Prix in years? By the finest of margins, Fernando Alonso was pipped to pole position by Max Verstappen, but the old dog has more than a few tricks up his sleeve, and if he gets off to a better start than the championship leader, we could have one hell of an upset in the making. Ready for a huge race? It's lights out for the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix at 3pm BST today, 28th May.

The narrow, tightly winding nature of the Circuit de Monaco means that the pole-sitter really should end up topping the podium, but there seems to be something in the air in the Principality. Alonso last won a Grand Prix a decade ago, but he's got a glint in his eye and the whole grid knows it.

The 41-year-old has already piled the pressure on Verstappen by scrutinising his starts, and it's up to the reigning champion to prove him wrong. 

Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly have responded superbly to Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi's threats to swing the axe after a succession of disastrous weekends. Ocon starts from 3rd, after a stunning drive and Charles Leclerc's three-place grid penalty, while Gasly is in 6th. Sandwiched between them are Carlos Sainz and Lewis Hamilton.

Sergio Perez will start from the back of the grid, having crashed out of the first Qualifying session.
