French Grand Prix 2021: Dates, Tickets, Updates, Schedule, How to Watch, Results And Everything You Need To Know


One of the most traditional events of the Formula 1 calendar returns this summer; the French Grand Prix.

One of several races cancelled in 2020 for obvious reasons, we head back to the Circuit Paul Ricard for round seven of the Formula 1 season.

A track that only came into the sport in 2018, the circuit heralded a return to France for the first time since 2004 where Formula 1 had been hosted by the track at Magny Cours.

It is, though, one of the most historic races in motorsport with it one of the first countries to host a Formula 1 race back in the 50s and France will naturally be excited to welcome back the sport after a year away.

Lewis Hamilton dominated proceedings in 2019 with a lights to flag victory and will want more of the same as he hunts an eighth world title.

Here's everything you need to know about the French Grand Prix this year...

The French Grand Prix recently moved a weekend earlier after the cancellation of the Turkish Grand Prix and will now be hosted between 18th and 20th June.


The venue has set a capacity of 15,000 per day and tickets can be found on the official F1 website.

The 2021 French Grand Prix has been moved a week forward from its original date.

Tickets purchased for then will still be valid for the new dates but refunds are also available for fans who now cannot make the revised schedule.

Fans are encouraged to contact their ticket operator if they wish to get a refund.
