2019 French GP Key Stats

Paul Ricard is a relatively new track to return to F1, coming back just last year and was plagued with issues for those attending.

Track Stats:

5.842km long lap

53 lap race

309.626km long race, the second longest race distance in 2019, behind the Russian GP

16th race at the Circuit Paul Ricard and the 60th French GP

9 races at the track have been won from pole (60.00%)

11 races have been won from the front row (73.33%)

McLaren and Williams are tied on three wins at the track, but are very unlikely to extend that

Alain Prost has a record four wins at Paul Ricard

Driver/Team Stats:

Two drivers have their home GP this weekend

Last year there were three French drivers, two retired on the first lap in a collision and the third finished 11th, outside of the points

Silly Stats:

8,988 baguettes would be required to lap once around the Circuit Paul Ricard.

183 coloured stripes are painted onto the runoff areas of the track, and I have counted them (and some areas where stripes end due to barriers but later in that runoff area reappear are not being counted twice, so it’s even more than 183 if you’re counting each individual stripe)
