2021 French Grand Prix preview

Held at the Circuit Paul Ricard, the French Grand Prix is followed by 2 races over consecutive weeks at the Red Bull Ring in Austria with the Styrian GP on 25–27 June followed by the Austrian GP from 2–4 July. So it’s a real opportunity for a team or driver to put their stamp on this year’s championship race.

Formula 1 upcoming schedule.

Mercedes have dominated this circuit since Formula 1 returned to the track in 2018, winning every session – practice to race – in that time. Hamilton took pole position and the race win in both 2018 and 2019.

They were the last 2 races before the pandemic interrupted last season. Hamilton has also led every lap since 2018 bar one. It’s an extraordinary record.

This season is a different affair, with Red Bull showing they have the speed and the driver to end Mercedes’ dominance, at least at other tracks.

Can Red Bull win in France? Yes, of course, but we think Hamilton will make it 3 French GP wins on the trot to take back the lead in this year’s championship. It will also add another twist in this fascinating season before we head to Austria.
