We're a few hours away from the seventh race of the 2021 Formula 1 season, with Paul Ricard playing host to the French Grand Prix. The weather reports indicate that the race might be a wet one with scattered thunderstorms set to hit the venue at 1.00 pm.

With drivers facing cooler conditions on Saturday as opposed to Friday, the teams decided that the medium compound tyre would best serve their race strategies. However, with the race predicted to be a wet one, these permutations are set to go out the window as they will most likely be forced to start on Pirelli's intermediate tyre if now the Italian brand's full-wets.

Temperatures are set to hover between 26 and 25 degrees celsious with the humidity pegged at 62%.

The wind speeds will range between 20 kmph to 24 kmph meaning that it is something that teams will need to consider especially once the track starts drying out.
