Description

View the race from a number of banked areas around the circuit, having to choose between:

  • Virage de la Sainte Baume - see cars exiting the Saint Baume turn to take on the famous Mistral straight, longest ever at 1.81km
  • Chicane Zone - the newly-built chicane which splits the Mistral straight in two and makes for opportunities for overtakings
  • Double Droite du Beausset - starting at the turn at the end of the Mistral straight and ending by the Le Beausset double right turns.
  • Courbe du Garlaban - between Le Beausset and Virage du Pont, one of the best areas to see cars take on up to four turns!

Please be advised that some of the General Admission areas can be small, so we advised getting there early to avoid disappointment. Due to the nature of the terrain, it might be a good idea to wear comfortable shoes.

Awesome

Best Grand Prix we’ve been too... Very well organised, no queuing to gain entrance or to exit the circuit. Plenty of food & drink eateries. Puts the British Grand Prix to shame... Will definitely be coming back

French F1 GP 2019

The service provided by bookF1 Com and the Motorsport Live team at the track was excellent. We were kept kully informed with regular updates and we were given a free upgrade which was fantastic. All emails were answered swiftly and having a presence at the event was very useful. As for the circuit and actual event, the general admission viewing opportunities are great, possibly the best I've been to (14th circuit for me). Some are better than the views from the stands, which don't seem to be in the best places for some reason. There are plenty of screens but commentary cannot be heard everywhere. One thing not to underestimate is the size of the track; it's a very long hike around, especially if you're carrying chairs and stuff and the chances are it will be very hot too! Estimates of a 10 minute walk from campsites are a joke too. I would allow 45 minutes to an hour from leaving to getting installed! It's an attractive circuit in beautiful surroundings but access is difficult by road. We camped due to last year's difficulties and getting out on Monday was no issue. The food and drink aren't generally cheap but are very reasonable compared to other circuits I've been to and there's plenty of choice. The service is very good too, I love the French! I was surprised and disappointed not to see any ptomotuinal Ricard stands! A free tipple is always appreciated. The shuttle buses were very random and poorly signed and good luck getting the correct one if you don't speak French. It was annoying that there was no bus available from the campsite in the morning; it was strictly staff only. However, going back it was a free for all. I won't be rushing back here because the effort required for the reward of f a great experience and the prospect of a great race are not as good as so many other tracks. Monaco is down the road and is such a superior experience. Ok, there's no overtaking there but the racing here is pretty dull with no jeopardy and Monaco is just a visual feast. However, what I will be doing is using this website again for booking tickets. Historically I have used many sites, including booking through the circuit itself. This has been the best booking experience in terms of information and help. Compare that to my Shanghai experience for example...! All turned out ok but its nice to know before you arrive that all is OK! Right, off to Austria now, before the long drive back to Ssilverstone. Thanks again fornthe upgrade but we were clearly helping Circuit Paul Ricard to save face with empty stands. Shame.

Logistics joke

Took 1.5hrs to drive the last 1.5kms to the F1 campsite. That was a 45 minute walk on busy, dangerous roads with inadequate or non-existant paving, Gendamerie making things worse zipping around. The circuit entrance road is abysmal. ZERO paving, so you have to walk across rocky ground and through flowerbeds, all while VIP vehicles, minibuses, coaches etc roar past at breackneck speeds, none stopping for the thousands of people trying to cross the road. Inside the circuit was no better, with three pedestrian bridges, two operating a one-way system (apart from F1 personnel who apparently do what they want) and one with a farcical two-way system being 'operated' by a security guard way out of his depth with no control. This resulted in huge queues bigger than Disneyland, and arguments between race fans and the guard, or amongst themselves as everyone was getting in everyone else's way and nothing was moving. It took 30 minutes to cross! Concession stands were also a joke. Average of 30 minutes queuing at every stand, regardless of time of day. Not enough staff and a poor system of one taking your order, another taking the money, etc We will not be going back.

Transport woes

We understand that the circuit is in a rural setting and acknowledge that the influx of people will cause traffic problems. Our main issue is the limited transportation alternatives . Staying at Tuolon, the only available transportation was by cab. From Toulon to Paul Ricard the fee was metered (Saturday morning 110 and Sunday 136 euros but from the track to Toulon it was a set fee which was 146 and 210 euros).Booking of a bus was not available until after we had commenced our trip which was 3 weeks before the Grand Prix and after that time it was necessary to print your own ticket (impractical). This makes the Paul Ricard F1 Grand Prix not attractive to overseas visitors who rely on the race organisers and/ or other relevant authorities to make the complete experience a positive one.

Good booking, Fun race, bad parking/traffic

BookF1 was great for ticket purchase support. The event itself was great, the circuit is very good. But the lines were long for food and beer. Parking and traffic were not very organized or supported by local authorities. Despite leaving before the race was over, it took 3 hours to get 30 km back to my hotel. Anticipate long waits in traffic after the race

Worst F1 campsite I've been to

I understand this was the first race at Paul Ricard for a long while, however the prep for the paths to the entrances and the car parks looked like a bulldozer had just been pushed through. There was barbed wire, rocks loose branches everywhere. I felt sorry for anyone with children or a mobility issue. The roads around the site were gridlocked for most of the weekend also. The security team on the camp site had obviously never been to another Formula 1 event; jumping on any form of fun or noise like a tramp on chips. Couple this with the lack of entertainment and draconian noise cut off of midnight meant this was the most boring race I've been to. Once you were in the confines of the race circuit things improved - there was just about enough space for people to view the race (general admission ticket). Liberty media have a lot to answer for with regards to the removal of any form of timing screens, instead forcing you to use the offical F1 app (which wouldn't have worked anyway due to lack of mobile data (overcrowding)). The on site fans are the people who have made the effort and paid the money to watch live motorsport, we should have at least the same information available as those sat at home.

poor viewing and parking nightmare

This circuit is not capable to host these big events. The general admission viewing is very limited and very poor. The parking is terrible, it is set in clumps of trees, many cars were getting damaged getting in and out. 5 hours to exit a car park is crazy. We actually missed race day as we just could not face another 8 hours in the car waiting to get in and out. Also we paid parking in advance and most people did not bother and were not charged. No parking tickets were checked at all. I think the track should refund those of us who tried to do the right thing with the parking.

Good experience.

Circuit and race excellent , could do with more drink and food outlets bottom end of track . Car parking SHOCKING !! Paid for this, No checks done at all and others going in for nothing. Total lack of organisation in car parks with cars blocking others in. Roads in and out bad too. Long queues and french police closing exit roads to longer divertions. 60 mile trip to get back to main road.

Farcical French Grand Prix

It’s a shame, there was so much potential for a great event. It wasn’t like the promoter hadn’t attempted to make this a real spectacle; air displays, historic cars, music concerts, it had them all. However, it soon became very apparent that the French authorities have no ability to organise the basics of an event. On Friday morning at 07:30 we set off for the first days practice, the track was 11 miles away. At 13:30 having now only got to within 8 miles of the track we were forced to call it a day and naturally, we weren’t the only ones to experience this, the vast majority of fans were unable to attend on Friday due to the complete incompetence of the French Police and the event organiser. The next day they released a short video on the trackside TVs which was largely a French shrug of the shoulders and “ahh well....” I’d like to say the remaining days were better organised, but they weren’t. Sunday was a particular highlight when the authorities ditched all attempts to manage the event and fans were sent on a six hour, fifty mile detour. We purchased a car park ticket to allow us to drive to the circuit all weekend, the locals however had sussed that this wasn’t required as the organisers haven’t the man power or ability to check. The end result was their staff of 15 year old boys and girls were directing cars in circles for hours. I felt sorry for the child labour they’d hired at one point. Would I go to the French GP again? No. Go to the German GP or somewhere where they have the intelligence to organise an event. If you like a bit of craziness in your life go to the Italian Grand Prix, at least you know you’ll be allowed to see all the days you’ve paid for.

Perfect race, perfect fans

Nothing more to say just like thank tou fir such a great event! Just a small thing - access to the track is difficult.. But if you go here a bit earlier and go out a bit later - you will avoid this massive traffic.

Race good , parking shambolic

Don’t pay for parking it’s free , the circuit infrastructure is dated however the track layout makes for good racing General admission viewing is ok but limited would recommend paying for a grandstand seat though . Traffic in and out was horrendous , a serous review and plan is required if the race rus next year

problem parking

he event, except Friday was very well organized. There is always a big negative, we bought parking to be quiet. but everyone had access to the car park, even people who did not pay. So we paid for nothing and we had to park far from the circuit because the parking was filled by people who did not pay.

Fabulous race track but so poor ligistics

Splendid area, fabulous race track, so nice weather but...extremely poor logistics. Access to the circuit was like hell. Access to food and drink shops was quite impossible. Cause my sons and I are am fond of the area and the Formula 1, we will remember only the good things, not sure everybody will think as us. By the way, we have paid 53 € for the parking lot which we have never reached and we walked 26 km over the 3 days.

Good but much room for improvement

The race itself was very enjoyable. But the situation with regard to the traffic management was beyond disgraceful. 3 hours to travel less than a Km is unacceptable by any standard. Also we paid for access to a paying car park but when we arrived we were told they were all full and that we would have to park on the side of the road. For the amount of money spent this is simply not acceptable. A serious rethink and improvement is required and the cop out answer that it was the local police that were in charge of traffic management is not valid!! When I organise events I have an action plan for traffic which I do in conjunction with the locals, police and event staff. Passing on the blame is not good enough for an organization of this size.

Badly organised

Having been to other European F1 events I had high hopes but long queue for drinks and food, the track running out of beer and sky high taxi costs put a downer on the event. A taxi from Bandol to the circuit was 35 euros and 60 to get back. However on the Sunday evening the track arranged taxi was 160 euros! A good race was ruined by poor organisation.
