2022 French Grand Prix

The 2022 French Grand Prix F1 took place on 24 July.

History of motor racing in France

The French Grand Prix, which took place in 1906, is the first Grand Prix in the history of motor racing. It was held near Le Mans. The length of each lap was more than 103 km.

A prize of 45,000 French francs was awarded to the winner.

The history of official F1 racing in France begins in 1950, at the Reims-Gueux circuit, in the suburb of Champagne. Manuel Fangio won the debut stage with a result of 2 hours 58 minutes.

The French Grand Prix F1 has been held at seven circuits in its rich history: Reims, Rouen, Le Mans, Clermont-Ferrand, Dijon-Prenois, Magny-Cours and Paul Ricard.

Paul Ricard is the only circuit in the Formula One schedule to be equipped with an artificial watering system for the road surface.

The French Grand Prix was the 62nd in the history of Formula 1. Only Great Britain, Monaco, Italy, Belgium and Germany have hosted more races since 1950.

2023 French Grand Prix

According to provisional information, the 2023 French Grand Prix will not take place in the new season.

This is due to the limited number of F1 events on the schedule (only 24 races during the year) and a reluctance to renew the contract with France, which expires at the end of the year.
