The Paul Ricard circuit invites you to a big four-day party from 21st to 24th June 2018. Don’t waste any time: save these dates in your diary and discover a foretaste of what awaits you!
THURSDAY 21ST JUNE
The teams have finished setting up camp at the circuit and after several days assembly the spectacular motorhomes are now installed. The circuit is ready to welcome the Formula 1 circus. The mechanics and engineers are already hard at work. The drivers too as they do their traditional track walk, a reconnaissance of the circuit on foot to inspect various details – kerbs, escape roads, etc.
A kind of infectious communications buzz begins to invade the circuit. After putting the final touches to the preparation of their cars the mechanics bring them to scrutineering to ensure that they comply with the regs.
FRIDAY 22ND JUNE
The engines finally roar into life! Two free practice sessions are the highlights of the first day of action on the track. From 12:00 to 13:30 the drivers take part in the first free practice session which, for them all, is their first real contact with the French Grand Prix circuit. The teams use this session to assess pre-calculated setups and test some new parts. The second free practice between 16:00 and 17:30 enables them to validate the modifications made to the setups because of the information gathered in the first session. The drivers also assess the performance of the tyres and analyse their behaviour in view of the race.
SATURDAY 23RD JUNE
The third free practice session between 13:00 and 14:00 is mainly devoted to finding pure performance and preparation for qualifying. The latter determines the grid positions that are so important for the race. The qualifying session between 16:00 and 17:00 unfolds in three eliminatory phases: the 15-fastest drivers in Q1 go into Q2 after which only the ten quickest progress to Q3 to fight for pole position.
SUNDAY 24TH JUNE
After gathering momentum the tension builds up to a crescendo on Sunday. The drivers’ parade at 12:30 is an intense moment of communication with the crowd. The weekend reaches its paroxysm at 16:10 with the start, a crucial moment in the race.
Several activities will enrich this programme in the coming weeks to the delight of the crowd. Join us again in the very near future – a raft of surprises awaits you!
