What channel is Formula 1 on today? TV schedule, start time of the 2021 French Grand Prix

This weekend is about the career, more than a career.

While the Paul Ricard circuit is not the most attractive or exciting track, the most exciting race will be at the top of the table in this year’s drivers’ championship.

Currently, Max Verstappen (107 points) leads Lewis Hamilton (104 points) as Red Bull and Mercedes drivers battle it out for driver supremacy as they enter Round 7 of the 2021 F1 season.

An incredibly entertaining Azerbaijani GP resulted in Verstappen crashing (due to poor tires), leaving the door open for Hamilton to take over. Hamilton, however, was locked out due to a driver error at the restart of the race on the last lap, prompting Sergio Pérez to take control of the race and Red Bull to clinch the constructors’ title.

The stakes are high going into the first race of a triple title.

Here’s what you need to know about this week’s F1 race:
