Welcome back to the French GP for the first time since 2008 at Magny-cours and 1990 at this years track Paul Ricard.
The talking point from both FP1 and FP2 has been the tail wind between turns 3 and 6, almost every driver has been spun around once they navigate the tight turns.
FP1 saw Ericsson's Sauber spin at high speed at turn 11 resulting in the car slamming into the tyre barrier then catching fire.
FP2 saw Perez's FI have a Left rear wheel failure at high speed going through turn 7 onto the Mistral straight, the left rear wheel just came off and rolled all the way down the straight before coming to stop near the chicane.
At the time it was suspected to be a wheel nut failure but the team later said it was the actually wheel/rim that failed.
