When is the French F1 Grand Prix?
The French GPwill take place on Sunday, June 23.
It will begin at 2.10pm UK time – that’s 3.10pm in France.
The race is being held at Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet.
Daniel Ricciardo will start from eighth on the grid at Renault’s home race after stewards opted to take no further action following the incident between him, Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean in Q1.
He will however start behind the McLaren duo of Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz Jr, Renault’s closest rivals in the midfield battle, as they stunning in qualifying.
Ricciardo, tongue-in-cheek, suggested it might have been part of a “secret upgrade” which the team kept to themselves – something Norris vehemently denied follow qualifying.
We got beat by the two McLarens and they have a little update they told no-one about, I think,” Ricciardo joked. “It’s impressive their pace and we couldn’t match it.
“I’m content with eighth place today; we kept up our recent run of Q3 appearances. I felt there wasn’t much more lap time left out there and eighth was probably the maximum.
“I made a mistake on the first Q2 run, so I aborted that and then put the medium tyre on. It was a risk as it was the first time we had run it all weekend.
“But clearly the team knew it was going to pay off as I managed a good lap to get through to Q3. The grid tomorrow is interesting with more or less everyone starting on the mediums. I’ll target the cars ahead and aim for a good race.”
Lewis Hamilton will be out in search of his sixth win of the season after claiming his 60th Mercedes pole on Saturday, but will face still competition from Valtteri Bottas, who joins him on the front row.
