The French Grand Prix is Next

From the hot-hot weather of Indianapolis, we move to cool and serene Magny Cours - The home of the Formula One French Grand Prix since 1991. The build-up to this race has been fairly interesting , Micheal Schumacher reckons that Ferrari will take the advantage they had in Indianapolis to France too, but Renault has other ideas. Alonso dubbed Indianapolis a fluke and even went on to say that things will be 'normal' (Ahem Ahem !!!) in France.

Here are some stats of the French Grand Prix to keep you busy.
