French GP: When to watch the race, qualifying and practice live on Sky Sports F1 this weekend

F1’s first triple-header of the season begins with the French Grand Prix, live from Paul Ricard on Sky Sports F1.

After two successive events on street tracks, it’s back to a permanent circuit in the picturesque south of France for round seven of a season that has sparkled and surprised from day one back in March.

Max Verstappen retains a four-point championship lead over Lewis Hamilton after the title protagonists unexpectedly both failed to score points in Baku, but the momentum remains with Red Bull – who still won last time out courtesy of Sergio Perez for their second triumph in a row.

But Mercedes are expecting a more competitive weekend, with Hamilton winning at Paul Ricard on F1’s last two visits since the French GP returned to the calendar in 2018.
