Formula 1 Grand Prix de France at the Castellet

The race will start on Sunday 24 June at 4:10 PM (French time)

After 10 years of absence, the French circuit registers again in the calendar of the F1 world championship. For 4 days, from 21 to 24 June, fans and visitors are going to attend the preparations and watch the race, which will take place on the famous Paul Ricard du Castellet circuit.

The five red lights will soon illuminate and kick off the Formula 1 Grand Prix de France, marking France’s return to the international chessboard of this sport.

The last F1 Grand Prix in France took place in 2008 on the Magny Cours circuit. Before that, it took place at the Castellet on the Paul Ricard circuit from 1971 to 1990.

When the return of the Grand Prix de France to this legendary circuit was announced, work began to bring many improvements to the site and the track to offer a new 5.8 kilometers long road. This length, above average, is a guarentee for variety, fun, and spectacle for both drivers and fans, not to mention the thrills and chills inseperable from Formula 1.

Test, starting grid, pilot parade, and a David Guetta concert.

For the occasion, the Paul Ricard circuit invites amators and tourists for a real four day party from 21 to 24 June.

On the program : the installation of teams on the circuit, the pilots’ inspection of the track, three free practice sessions, a qualifying session to determine the composition of the starting grid, the drivers parade, and finally the moment of departure at 4:10 PM on Sunday 24 June. After the race, David Guetta will perform at 6:30 PM.

One day and three day passes are available for sale for this unmissable event.
