French GP return still on course | Planet F1 | Formula One News

The country last hosted a F1 race in 2008 at Magny-Cours, but negotiations about reviving the grand prix have been underway for several months now.
Reports in January suggested that the grand prix could be staged as early as September 2013.
Although news about the race has gone quiet since then, Douillet insists that the French GP "is not dead".
In an interview with TF1, Douillet said: "We will have three French drivers in F1 so we have to have French Grand Prix. It is my role to make sure we have a grand prix in France."
The race will reportedly be staged at the Paul Ricard circuit and France will alternate with the Belgian GP for a period of 10 years.
"I met Bernie Ecclestone and he was willing to share the grand prix between Belgium and France. He has mobilised and motivated local governments for the financing of the event," said Douillet.
"We have yet to really put ourselves in agreement with our Belgian friends ((including the promoter of the Belgian GP Etienne Davignon) and there are also some details with one or two cities about finances. We are almost there."
