As part of our preparation for NBC’s live broadcast of the Monaco Grand Prix (which you also can watch online), this Sunday at 7:30 a.m. ET, Leigh Diffey took to our Formula One on NBC Sports Twitter handle (@F1onNBCSports) to answer fan questions ahead of the race.

Monaco kicks off the single greatest racing day of the season, this Sunday, May 26, followed by the Indianapolis 500 and then Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte.  The weekend kicks off with live coverage of free practice two from Monaco, Thursday at 8 a.m. ET on the NBC Sports Network, with live streaming available on NBC Sports Live Extra.

Diffey, David Hobbs, Steve Matchett and Will Buxton are on site in Monaco for coverage this weekend. Here are some of the tweets sent to the @F1onNBCSports account that Diffey answered.

EDITOR’S NOTE: NBCSN will air additional Dakar Rally highlights on Monday at 7 p.m. ET.

As it has done so for four decades, the 40th annual Dakar Rally – the most grueling test of man and machine anywhere – produced a number of surprise finishes and also several disappointments for drivers or riders who were expected to do well in the nearly 5,600-mile trek that began in Peru and continued through Bolivia and ending in Argentina.

NBCSN has aired highlights from all 14 stages (actually 13, because one stage was completely rained out) during the Rally’s two-week run, which concluded Saturday.

Here’s some of the “best of” highlights from the overall Rally highlights, followed by a quick guide that gives you wrapups to all 14 stages.

So, without further adieu, here’s NBCSN’s “best of” the 2018 Dakar Rally:

2018 Dakar Rally: Best of cars

2018 Dakar Rally: Best of bikes

2018 Dakar Rally: Best of trucks
