Formula 1: where to follow the Grand Prix de France in clear?

This Sunday, July 24, the Grand Prix de France is held, the French stage of the F1 world championship. And just like last year, it will be possible for enthusiasts to follow it in the clear!

This is one of the unmissable events for Formula 1 fans: the Grand Prix de France will start on Sunday July 24 on the Paul Ricard circuit in Le Castellet (Var). And to the delight of viewers who appreciate powerful engines, the race will be broadcast unencrypted, on C8, like last year.

A race followed by more than 2.1 million viewers in 2021

The 12th round of the world championship is therefore preparing to take place from 3 p.m. on the screens of a large number of viewers, gathered to see Max Verstappen compete (Red Bull) and Charles Leclerc (Ferrari), without forgetting the pilots of the Mercedes team in order to win the title of champion of France. Last year, the race was indeed broadcast encrypted on Canal + and unencrypted on C8, and was followed by nearly 2.1 million viewers on the two channels combined. Canal+, historic broadcaster of the entire Formula 1 World Championship, had amassed 1.02 million subscribers, while C8, which simultaneously broadcast the race in clear, won by Max Verstappen, attracted 855,000 viewers.

To comment on this « sporting event of major importance » according to the Team, C8 sent Antoine Arlot and Loic Duvalwhile free practice and qualifying will also be broadcast on the channels of the Canal group, which owns the rights to F1. Another point to underline, the hypothesis of the last Grand Prix of France to take place on the circuit of Castellet. Indeed, according to Ouest France, a replacement by a race in Nice has been mentioned and Magny-Cours would like to return. New dates for 2023 have already been announced by F1 executives, which raises the need for the disappearance of certain historic Grands Prix, including the French Grand Prix. According to the Mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, the situation could clear up towards the end of July. For memory, the Paul Ricard circuit in Le Castellet is 5.842 km long, with 15 bends and 53 laps. All the more reason not to miss this meeting, from 3 p.m. on C8!
