Circuit Paul Ricard opened in 1970 and quickly became a favorite of many fans and drivers for its location in warm and sunny Southern France and its long back straight and high speed corners. Paul Ricard has had a spotted history: home to the French Grand Prix between 1971 and 1990 it fell out of racing favor and was then used primarily for automotive testing and some motorcycle races, but it is making a return to Formula 1 in 2018 as F1 returns to France for the first time in more than a decade. The most distinctive feature of the track is the blue and red traction strips outside of the racing surface. The strips are abrasive paving designed to slow cars down if they leave the racing line. They are designed to act as a safer alternative to gravel traps and they definitely look great.
