The French Formula One Grand Prix will return in 2018 after a 10-year absence, with the race scheduled to take place at the Circuit Paul Ricard in southern France, regional politician Christian Estrosi said on Monday.

France hosted the first-ever recognized Grand Prix near Le Mans in 1906, but the country lost its slot in 2008.

Felipe Massa in a Ferrari won the last F1 race staged in France in 2008 at Magny-Cours. French four-time champion Alain Prost was victorious the last time the event was held at Le Castellet in 1990.
