Tickets are now available for the 2022 French Grand Prix. Prices for 3-day tickets start from €160 for General Admission and rise to just over €600 for the seats in the Main Grandstand (Ligne de Départ) facing the podium. This is the last contracted race at Circuit Paul Ricard and there’s no guarantee that the event will be able to keep its place on the F1 calendar in the future. This would be disappointing. Despite the well publicised organizational issues at the race when it returned in 2018, Paul Ricard and the local region have a lot to offer travelling fans and our experience in 2019 was excellent. This year’s race was also pretty exciting! Learn more about buying tickets for the 2022 French Grand Prix.

2022 French Grand Prix: Grandstands & General Admission
Start-Finish (Ligne de Départ): Best for pits action, and the race lead up, start and finish. Choose another grandstand if you want to see on-track action. Three categories of tickets are offered in the Start-Finish Grandstand; the most expensive Podium seats are located opposite the podium, whilst Gold seats are located opposite the starting grid and Silver seats are located after the start-finish line and closer to Turn 1. Upper seats in the grandstand are covered.
Sainte Baume (Turns 3-4): Four Silver grandstands are located between turns 5 and 6. Sainte Baume 4 looks to be the pick of them, with good views of the cars approaching straight. Two Bronze grandstands are also positioned on the run down to turn 7.
Chicane (Turn 6): The mighty Mistral straight will be broken up by the Chicane Nord (North Chicane). Six grandstands are clustered around this corner: two Bronze grandstands on the entrance (Chicane 1-2) and four Silver grandstands on the corner itself (Chicane 3-6). We’d choose Chicane 6 as you’ll have a view of the cars approaching you (rather than a side or rear view). See our video view below.
Le Beausset (Turn 8): Three Bronze grandstands are located on the outside of the long, sweeping turn 8. Le Beausset 2 and 3 seem to offer better views than Le Beausset 1. A fourth Family Grandstand offering discounted children’s tickets is also on this corner.
Virage du Pont (Turn 12): Four Gold grandstands are situated on the outside of the slow turn 12 hairpin. All grandstands here are covered. Virage du Pont 2 has views up the main straight, but we’d choose Virage du Pont 3 or 4 for better panoramic views of the final few corners. (Not yet available for 2022)
General Admission: Several standing areas are dotted around Paul Ricard, including at the start of the Mistral Straight and after the Chicane halfway down Mistral. The largest zones are located in the last few corners; on the approach to Turn 8 and between Turns 9-11.
Champions Club by F1 Experiences: Located on the last few corners at Paul Ricard and with views down the start-finish straight, the Champions Club is located in the permanent ‘burger bar’ complex – which sounds a worse than it is! This is a modern building with a combination of grandstand seating, outdoor terraces and indoor spaces. Excellent views, high-quality cuisine and good service. Recommended! (Not yet available for 2022)
Formula 1 Paddock Club: The best hospitality suite at the French Grand Prix is located directly above the pits. It’s worth noting that the Paddock Club space is located on the first floor at Paul Ricard, which puts you close to the cars below. There’s also a rooftop terrace with great views down the Main Straight. VIP hospitality with seated meals, open bars and good perks like daily pit lane walks, driver appearances and access to the F1 Paddock. Flexible 1, 2 or 3-Day Access is available with F1 Experiences.
