Held at several venues over the years, the French Grand Prix has once again settled at the Circuit Paul Ricard after returning to the F1 calendar in 2018. The track is known for its distinctive blue and red striped run off areas that replaced the gravel traps of old.

F1 French Grand Prix 2021

Since Jackie Stewart claimed victory at the first race at the Circuit Paul Ricard in 1971, the event has floated in and out of the F1 calendar. Now back in the mix since the return of the French Grand Prix in 2018, the track is one of the most used test circuits in the world thanks to the presence of high, medium and low speed corners.

The F1 return saw the entry to La Verrerie, the Virage du Camp and the Virage du Pont all widened, while drivers are tested by the right-hander at Signes that reaches speeds of 290km/h.

The circuit itself is situated on a plateau, making the surface as smooth as anything you’ll see over the course of the year. It also means there is ample space for various layouts, with the track able to accommodate up to 167 variations.

The French Grand Prix 2020

The race wasn’t held in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2019 edition saw Mercedes complete a front-row lockout, with Lewis Hamilton claiming victory from pole ahead of Valtteri Bottas.

Charles Leclerc took home third for Ferrari, while the last lap saw Lando Norris, Daniel Ricciardo, Kimi Raikkonen and Nico Hulkeberg battle for the final points position, with the Australian later handed two five-second penalties and ultimately being classified in 11th spot.

When is the 2021 French Grand Prix on the F1 calendar?
The French Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on the weekend of June 18-20 and is provisionally set to be the seventh race of the Formula 1 season. The first two free practice sessions will take place on June 18 with qualifying on Saturday June 19 at 15:00 CET.

What time does the French Grand Prix start?
The French Grand Prix starts on Sunday June 20, 2021 at 15:00 CET. The race can be followed live on RacingNews365's blog and via television on Canal+.
