The Monaco Grand Prix 2015 live stream and TV coverage arrives on Sunday from the Circuite de Monaco with Formula One racing fans ready to watch an exciting event. Former winner Lewis Hamilton captured pole position for the event for the first time in his career, and will lead the favorites to win this major race. Will his rival Nico Rosberg win a third-straight, or will it be Hamilton’s second win? Perhaps a surprising new driver will take the major win as live streaming online and televised coverage comes via NBC Sports Network.
According to BBC.com of UK on their May 23 report, Hamilton edged Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg by a comfortable margin of 0.342 seconds to snag pole position for Sunday’s major F1 race. Coming in third was Sebastian Vettel at 0.75 seconds off the winning pace, followed by Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat to round out the top five in qualifying times. It made for the third consecutive year that Team Mercedes has owned a front row lockout, giving the edge to its stars Hamilton and Rosberg. While Hamilton has won the race one previously back in 2008, Rosberg has won back-to-back editions in the past few years.
The two drivers are separated by 20 points in the 2015 Driver Standings with Hamilton leading at 111 followed by Rosberg at 91 points. That gives Team Mercedes a series edge to win the Constructor’s Championship in 2015, although Ferrari drivers Vettel and Raikkonen are in third and fourth, respectively. Vulture Bottas of Williams is in fifth for the current standings with a total of 42 points before Sunday’s Monaco race. Clearly the winner at this major motorsports event gets a nice boost in the standings as well as the move towards the championship continues.
Odds makers have Hamilton on the moneyline at -280 as the favorite, with Rosberg at a price of +430. Next up is Red Bull’s Vettel, who has also won the race back in 2011. He’ll carry odds to win of +1550. Daniel Ricciardo is a +4000 favorite to win. Kimi Raikkonen is a huge underdog at +5600 to win Sunday’s race, but stranger things have happened in sports. Meanwhile, Hamilton continues to lead all drivers at -485 to win this year’s Drivers Championship, with Rosberg at +700 and Vettel at +1700.
