Hello F1 Fans,
Round 8 of the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship takes us to the Paul Ricard circuit for the French Grand Prix which returned to the calendar last year after a 10-year hiatus. The 5.842 km track with 15 corners offers fast straights and slow and medium-speed corners. There are two DRS zones: the main/pit straight and between turns 7 and 8.
TIRE ALLOCATION: Pirelli has elected the C2, C3 and C4 compounds as the white hard, yellow medium and red soft tires.
STANDINGS: With his controversial win in Canada, Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton now leads the driver's championship with 162 points followed by his teammate Valtteri Bottas with 133 points. Sebastian Vettel lies third with 100 points. On the constructor front, Mercedes is way ahead with 295 points followed by Ferrari and Red Bull with 172 and 124 points respectively.
Can Mercedes claim their 8th win in as many races? Or will Ferrari or Red Bull finally take their first win of the season?
If you're in the New York City area and looking to watch the race with other F1 fans, be sure to join us for the French Grand Prix to see who will take the checkered flag.
Race will start at 9:10 AM with the pre-race starting at 8:30 AM. It should be another exciting race.
