Practical Information

As every year, the Formula 1 French Grand Prix offers you an exceptional programme of events which will be placed under the sign of competition, mechanical sport and thrills for young and old.


 “All around the races”


Competition, races, everywhere on the circuit Paul Ricard and all the time. When you buy your ticket for the French Grand Prix, you enter the incredible world of F1, but you will also discover motor sport in all its forms.

Throughout the weekend, you will be able to attend various competitions, shows and demonstrations that will blow your mind and get your adrenaline pumping! Thrill seekers, we are waiting for you!

Each zone has its own sensations, its own universe, its own discoveries for you, your friends and/or your family.

Meetings and autographs with the drivers, discovery of the world of each competition, visits to the paddocks, exchanges with the mechanics…. In each zone of the circuit, it is a complete immersion in a competitive mechanical sport that awaits you.

This edition will also mark the return of the mythical Southern Village, highlighting the exceptional resources and cultural or culinary treasures of our region, the Southern Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.


Where? Behind the Sainte-Baume stands

A world that will seem tiny, but where the pleasure will be immense. Come and discover a world specially dedicated to miniatures!

And if you are offered racing but in miniature, it is intriguing?

An exceptional work! The Formula 1 French Grand Prix in miniature, does that speak to you? But what is it made of is the big surprise we have in store for you!

Perhaps an emblematic plane from the Star Wars universe will be hidden there or maybe the famous van from the A-Team that drove on the track last year? It’s up to you to find out!

Finally, come and watch the grand finale of the F1 Schools competition! For more than a year, secondary school students and apprentices have been competing to develop the most aerodynamic F1 miniatures. On a 24-metre track, powered by CO2, only one car will achieve the fastest time! Who will win this final?
