The Formula 1 Grand Prix de France exists in the form of a Public Interest Group, a flexible tool adapted to the organisation of major events.
A Public Interest Grouping (PIG) allows public and private partners to pool resources for the implementation of missions of general interest.

Within the GIP, there are major local players (the South Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region, the Toulon-Provence-Mediterranean Metropolis, the Var Departmental Council, the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis, the Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis, the Bouches-du-Rhône Departmental Council, the Var Chamber of Commerce, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce, the South Sainte-Baume Community) and private (Circuit Paul Ricard).

The GIP made it possible to secure a 5-year contract between F1 and France, from 2018 to 2022, with the objective of extending this contract until 2027
