The French Grand Prix is just around the corner. At the Paul Ricard circuit, the F1 drivers will be in action this weekend for the twelfth race of the season. Find out what time you need to switch on for each session here.

There are still two races to go before the summer break and the first of the upcoming Double Header is the French GP. It might also be the last edition of the race, as the circuit is still not sure of a place on the calendar in 2023. However, a place in a rotation model together with Spa-Francorchamps might be considered.

Red Bull in pursuit of glory

Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen will need to prove once again that the RB18 is the fastest car in France. In Austria it was beaten on home soil by Charles Leclerc, and will be looking to put that right in Le Castellet. This may be helped by Ferrari itself, as the F1-75 again proved far from reliable in Austria, with Carlos Sainz dropping out.

A race in Europe also means familiar times for the French GP. The first session of the weekend starts on Friday at 14:00hrs local (and therefore 1pm UK time) time. In France, the normal race weekend is used again, so we have a second free practice on Friday and qualifying on Saturday. The race starts on Sunday at 2pm.
