The French Grand Prix constitutes the first half of the fifth double-header of the season. Before the teams and drivers take their well-deserved summer break, there will be two races, one in Le Castellet and the second in Budapest. Both will be grueling contests of endurance for the drivers, and not only because of the high temperatures.
This will be the 62nd time that Formula 1 racing has taken place in France, which qualifies the event as a classic on the calendar: only Great Britain, Italy, Monaco, Belgium and Germany have hosted more Grands Prix since 1950.
To ensure that the teams’ equipment arrives at the Hungaroring on time, teams will start dismantling the paddock during the race at the Circuit Paul Ricard. Afterwards, the trucks will cover approximately 1,200 kilometers from Le Castellet to the Hungarian capital.
