Today is regarded as being the ‘biggest day in motorsport’ as the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 all take place and create a feast of racing for fans to enjoy.

Even in Formula 1, this is arguably the most important day of the year given that Monaco is its crown jewel event. The rich and famous will grace the grid, but all eyes will once again be on Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg amid their fight for supremacy.

Hamilton clinched his first Monaco pole position on Saturday with a fine display at the end of qualifying, but with Rosberg alongside him on the front row of the grid, the race is far from won.

Coverage of the Monaco Grand Prix starts at 7am ET on Sunday on NBCSN with F1 Countdown. At 7:30am ET, we will be moving over to NBC for the main race show.

All of the coverage will also be available on Live Extra. CLICK HERE to watch via live stream.

Hamilton heads into the race with history on his side. Ten of the last eleven races in Monaco have been won by the man on pole position, with Rosberg claiming the last two victories in such fashion.

However, should the German driver manage to get the better of his teammate and win on Sunday, he will become just the fourth driver in F1 history to claim three successive Monaco GP victories.

Ferrari remains large in Mercedes’ mirrors, though, after Sebastian Vettel qualified in third place on Saturday. Should conditions be warmer than they were during qualifying, the four-time world champion may yet be able to fight for a second win in Monaco, although it will take a herculean effort from the driver and the team.

Throughout the field there are a number of storylines to keep an eye one, which you can read in our grand prix preview from earlier in the week.

Whether you’re a diehard racing fan or merely a follower of sports, the Monaco Grand Prix is up there as one of the most glamorous events around and is a must-watch.
