1970s

In 1971, the Paul-Ricard circuit organised for the first time a Formula 1 race. The Paul Ricard circuit is a new type of modern facility with a wide track and vast areas allowing spectators to enjoy the race to the fullest. The strong technological advances in motor sport are creating ever faster single-seaters and thus marking the end of public road circuits in France. The Charade circuit hosted the Grand Prix de France for the last time in 1972.

The Formula 1 Grand Prix de France is divided mainly into two circuits in the 1970s: the Paul Ricard circuit and the Dijon-Prenois circuit. The year 1979 is a milestone in the history of French and world motor sport with the intense duel between René Arnoux and Gilles Villeneuve at the Grand Prix de France and Jean-Pierre Jabouille’s victory with his Renault F1 with turbo engine.
