Almost a third of the Circuit Paul Ricard was yet to be resurfaced for this year’s French Grand Prix earlier February 2021. The circuit has been lying idle since 1990, with the last racing taking place here in 2019. Last year’s pandemic led to the suspension of major sporting events that paralyzed the Grand Prix events.
French grand prix 2021 Venue And Time Of The Race
The French GP is expected to resume this year in June, presumably on the eighth weekend of the season. A lot has changed on the circuit since 2019, with the new track incorporating some new changes on the turns.
Noticeable is the turn five that will now have a crest, which Dromo says will allow effortless draining. This is a new turn, and seeing drivers having some hard times here will not be a surprise as it lies specifically at the center of the racing line.
Another change has been made on turn seven which will usher the drivers into the Mistral straight. The biggest challenge here will be the tire grip since most overtaking takes place here.
The French Grand Prix is set to go down in Le Castellet on 27th June, where the drivers will be testing their speeds on the 5.8km Circuit Paul Ricard track.
