French GP

25 Jun 2021 - 27 Jun 2021

About

The French Grand Prix is a Formula One race held at the Circuit Paul Ricard in France. The race was one of the permanent fixtures of the Formula One Calendar until 2008 when the race had to be taken off the calendar citing Financial issues. The race returned in 2018 at Paul Ricard and was won by Lewis Hamilton. 

Racing History

The French Grand Prix has been held at multiple tracks in the past including Magny Cours and Paul Ricard. The GP returned to the calendar in 2018 at Paul Ricard and received a lukewarm response because of the nature of the track. The Circuit Paul Ricard is a great track for testing a Formula One car but when it comes to the wheel to wheel action and racing there isn’t much on offer.

The track has been a happy hunting ground for many all-time legends. Michael Schumacher is the most successful driver on this track with 8 wins to his name. Alain Prost, the greatest French driver in the history of the sport had 6 wins in a French Grand Prix. On the current grid, Lewis Hamiton boasts of 2 wins in a French Grand Prix, both coming behind the wheels of the all-conquering Mercedes in 2018 and 2019. 

Ferrari has been the most dominant constructor in the French Grand Prix with as many as 17 wins. Williams is second on the list with 8 wins while Mercedes has 7 wins in the French GP.

With the presence of Piere Gasly and Esteban Ocon on the grid and the return of Renault, The French Grand Prix should be able to stay for a longer duration. 

The 2021 iteration is expected to be held on 27 June 2021.
