The French Grand Prix is a race that is not currently on the F1 calendar. It was last held in 2008 at Magny-Cours, and will return in 2018 at Circuit Paul Ricard.[1][2]

The first French Grand Prix was held in 1906, on a public road circuit outside of Le Mans. This is regarded as the very first Grand Prix ever.
