The Round 7 of the 2021 Formula One World Championships will be held at Circuit Paul Ricard this weekend for the French Grand Prix after a week’s break. The practice sessions will start on 18th June while qualifying and race will take place on 19th and 20th respectively.
Again, Mercedes and Red Bull will be the frontrunners for the top spot, with Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton fighting at the top. Mercedes will look to bounce back after a terrible show at the streets of Monte Carlo and Baku. The Paul Ricard track should also favor them because of its low downforce nature.
Ferrari, who punched above their weight at Monaco and Azerbaijan, will find it difficult to keep up with the likes of Mercedes and Red Bull in France. Max Verstappen leads the world championship currently despite not finishing the Azerbaijan GP. The Dutch driver has 105 points to his name so far, whereas, Lewis Hamilton has 101 points from the first six races.
