No national will for French GP says Alesi

France fell off the Formula 1 calendar because it lacks the “national will” to organise an annual grand prix. That is the claim of French F1 legend Jean Alesi, who after the circuit lost its grand prix following the 2022 edition has just become president at Paul Ricard. “The presidents of other countries are honoured to have the event on their territory,” said the former Ferrari driver. “The French GP is not a problem of the Paul Ricard circuit, it is a national problem. There is no national will to have a grand prix,” he added. “Geographically, the Paul Ricard circuit was ideal,” Alesi said.
