After a week off, Formula 1 heads down to the Circuit Paul Ricard once again for the 2022 French GP.
Last year’s race came down to a tight strategy battle between Red Bull and Mercedes, with Max Verstappen passing Lewis Hamilton for the win on the final lap.
The 2022 edition could prove to be another close run battle between Red Bull and Ferrari, after Charles Leclerc closed the gap at the top of the Drivers’ Championship last time out with a consummate display at the Austrian GP.
The 2022 French Grand Prix kicks off on Friday July 22, with qualifying scheduled for 15:00 BST on Saturday July 23 and the lights out for the race at 13:00 BST on Sunday July 24.
