France, Magny-Cours - June 29th - July 1st - 2001

About the French GP

Like Barcelona, teams use Magny-Cours for their testing purposes, meaning races are usually lifeless. The circuit is a mixture of moderately challenging sweeping straights and tight corners, which can come to life if it rains. However, last year the race was an enthralling encounter, with David Coulthard enduring a bitter battle with Michael Schumacher. The two clashed at the Adelaide hairpin, but mechanical problems for the German ended the battle, enabling Coulthard to take the win.

Set up

Magny-Cours contains a blend of high speed sweeping corners and straights with some slow sections meaning that cars require low to medium downforce settings.
