LIVE | The French Grand Prix! Can Hamilton extend his championship lead?

The French Grand Prix looks likely to be more of the same. Mercedes domination. Will Charles Leclerc be able to get ahead of Valtteri Bottas and challenge Lewis Hamilton? Will the McLarens be able to get past Max Verstappen? It's not long until these questions are answered as we keep you up to date with the French Grand Prix.  

Mercedes have locked out the front row at the Paul Ricard Circuit and look likely to maintain their impressive winning record. Lewis Hamilton pipped his teammate to pole position but it will be a close race between the two Silver Arrows as they aim to extend their championship lead. 

Charles Leclerc starts in third alongside Max Verstappen in 4th and it will be interesting to see if either of these two can make an attack on the Mercedes off the start. 

Behind them, there are two blisteringly fast McLarens who will be targetting overtaking Verstappen, so the start of the race is set to be extremely exciting. 

Sebastian Vettel starts the race in 7th after a poor qualifying session and it will be interesting to see how far up the grid he can get himself before the checkered flag.
