Mercedes-Benz at the French Grand Prix

The 5.861 km Circuit Paul Ricard may be new to many Formula One fans, but it has a long history with the sport, having hosted the French Grand Prix 14 times between 1971 and 1990.

Located near Marseille in France, the track was renowned for being one of the most innovative and safe facilities around when it was opened back in 1970, before staging its first F1 race the following season.

F1 moved to the Magny-Cours track from 1991 onwards, before the race was dropped from the calendar following the 2008 event. It returned to the F1 schedule for 2018, 10 years after the last French GP, and is back at Paul Ricard once again.

While the sport hasn’t raced at the circuit for some time, it has been used extensively as a test track – in part thanks to its multi-configuration layout, expansive run-off areas and varying range of corner types.

The last French GP took place two seasons before Mercedes returned as a works team in 2010, but the team has achieved success at the race, winning it in 1954 – the first outing for Mercedes in the Formula One World Championship.
