French GP 2021 Weather Forecast: What will be the weather conditions in Marseille this weekend, as France returns to the calendar.
Paul Ricard is not one of the most visually pleasing tracks in the calendar, with the large blue rims placing the cameras far away from the track, hence giving zoom-in shots, which doesn’t make the race visually pleasing.
After two successive street races, F1 is back on the standard circuits, and Red Bull is tensed that Mercedes might have an advantage over here.
Red Bull is currently leading the table with a decent lead, and with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez performing well, they should capitalize their chance.
However, fans would not be displeased if the rain can bring in a little chaos that might force some spinning on the track by the drivers and a few DNFs.
Therefore, weather with little showers can be a massive differential in a rather monotonous race. So let’s see what does the weather have in hand for the French Grand Prix this weekend.
