Formula One returns to Paul Ricard after a year away, following its return to the track in 2018 – and indeed country – after a prolonged break. The last race there was dreadful, so let us hope for something a little more entertaining.

Overtaking chances: The prospects probably appear better than they actually are. The two races we've had at this track since F1 returned in 2018 have been pretty poor, all in all. DRS down the long back straight is the best chance but there was little jeopardy in it, which suggests a reduced DRS zone might be the best thing.
