What time does the 2021 French GP start and how to watch it

The 2021 Formula 1 season continues this weekend with the seventh race of the year at the French Grand Prix. Here is everything you need to know about what time the race starts, where to watch it live and more.

The 2021 Formula 1 season heads to the south of France this weekend, and to one of its less anticipated venues, for the seventh round of the year where the ongoing battle between Mercedes and Red Bull looks set to continue.

Circuit Paul Ricard may have plenty of Formula 1 history, but usually produces quite dull races due to the effects of dirty air being particularly bad. Aesthetically, it's also not a fan favourite due to the huge expanses of run-off as the venue is primarily a test facility for motorsport series.

However, the long straights do mean overtaking is possible, and the battle between the two title contenders looks set to rumble on.

After their disappointments in Baku, expect both Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen to be guns blazing as they attempt to get some authority in the ongoing championship battle.

Here is everything you need to know about how to watch the 2021 F1 French Grand Prix and more.
