French Grand Prix 2021

Schedule for 2021 F1 French Grand Prix

The French Formula 1 Grand Prix is ​​next up on the F1 calendar. The race is the first at Paul Ricard since 2019, after the 2020 edition was cancelled. Check out the full-time schedule.

Formula 1 returns to France this week, with the Paul Ricard circuit playing host to the French Grand Prix for the first time since 2019.

The schedule, unlike Monaco, is in keeping with tradition, as Thursday is earmarked for media activities - and for the drivers to get their eye in with a track walk.

Then, on Friday, it's time for the two practice sessions where the drivers will need to quickly refamiliarise themselves with the circuit's testing high-speed corners.

Saturday brings the final practice session before the crucial qualifying hour, with the race held on Sunday afternoon.

RacingNews365.com will be on hand to cover all of the action and you can find our live blog HERE. We will also have exclusive interviews, news and analysis throughout the entire weekend in France.

What time does the Formula 1 French Grand Prix start? Check out the full schedule below.
