After being cancelled for 2020 due to Covid-19, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique returns for its 12th running this weekend, beginning Friday (April 23) and ending Sunday (April 25). You’ll be able to watch the qualifying and racing action on this page.
This year’s event will have a Ferrari theme in celebration of the 70 anniversary of its first grand win with Jose Froilan Gonzalez in 1951, with many of the Scuderia’s greatest F1 and sports cars gracing streets which first saw F1 action back in 1929.
With 96 cars in total on track, the entire weekend is a veritable smorgasbord for fans of historic racing, and will also see grand prix legends such as Jean Alesi and Rene Arnoux driving.
The weekend begins with free practice sessions on Friday, followed by qualifying on Saturday and racing on Sunday.

What cars are racing at the Historic Monaco Grand Prix, and when?
The event will see seven different categories of racing, from pre-war fire-breathing monsters to 1980s F1 flyers. The scheduled times are BST, but historic racing events are particularly subject to timetable changes.
A Series -pre-war cars / voiturettes
Pre-war monsters dice it out on the principality streets. This category will feature a 1934 Alfa Romeo TIPO B (P3), Bugatti 35B and a 1937 Maserati 4CM piloted by 2012 Spanish Grand Prix race winner Pastor Maldonado, amongst others.
Driven to victory at Monza in 1960 by U.S.’s only F1 champ Phil Hill, the Ferrari Dino 246F was the last front-engined car ever to win a grand prix, and thus will be driven as part of a delayed 60th-anniversary celebration of the race this year.
Pitted against the Dino will be a field including a 1958 Lotus 16 and a pair of Maserati 250Fs – cars from the age of Fangio, Ascari, Moss and Hawthorn.
