“I'm looking forward to going back racing again. Paul Ricard is a very tricky circuit with numerous different types of corners. Turn 11 is one of the most challenging physically, both on the driver and on the car, on the entire calendar and is a joy to drive. I'm also looking forward to three races in a row, as we move onward to Austria after France, and the season really starting to hot up.”
FP1 for the FrenchGP will get underway on Friday June 18 from 10:30am BST.
