After two 'flyaway' races in Canada and the United States, Formula 1 returns to Europe for another brace of back-to-back events, starting, this weekend, in France.

Much as the teams make out that they despise heading to the heart of the country, and the middle of nowhere, for the race, they will all take a longing last look at Magny-Cours this weekend, for there will be no French Grand Prix in 2008, while the FFSA gets its house in order ahead of a proposed move to another circuit for 2010.

Formula One returns to Europe with as big a buzz surrounding Lewis Hamilton as when it left for Montreal, the British phenomenon having now added two race wins to his already impressive start to the season, and holding a ten-point championship advantage that will ensure he heads to his home race with at least a share of the lead next weekend.

How France will respond to the rosbif remains to be seen, however, especially with none of its countrymen to embrace following the country's continuing absence from the driver roster. Franck Montagny is not only the last Frenchman to grace the F1 grid, he is currently the best placed to return, although Ralf Schumacher's turbulent season with Toyota appears set to continue, depriving the home crowd of someone to cheer this weekend at least.

FIA F1 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP NEWS

The main news since the Canadian Grand Prix - and Lewis Hamilton's second win in succession, concerns former F1 mega star, Michael Schumacher, who has announced that he will come out of retirement to compete in the 2007 Race of Champions (RoC).

The gladiatorial-style RoC has been in existence since 1988, and Schumacher's return - the German previously competed in the event in 2004 in Paris, when he lost out to current Renault rookie Heikki Kovalainen in the final shoot-out - is sure to be a major draw as the event heads to Wembley Stadium on Sunday, 16 December, the first time it has taken place on British soil.

Schumacher's 'team', Ferrari have also been in the headlines for other less desirable reasons following confirmation that they are taking legal action against their head of performance development, Nigel Stepney.

Ferrari believe that Stepney is guilty of 'sabotage' after a mysterious 'white powder' was found in the fuel tank of Felipe Massa's car prior to last month's Monaco Grand Prix.

Stepney and his lawyers have denied all charges brought against him, dismissing the accusations as part of a 'a dirty tricks campaign'.

In other news, British Racing Drivers' Club president, Damon Hill has said that he is confident there will still be a British Grand Prix at Silverstone post-2009, when the current deal expires.

Speaking exclusively to Crash.net Radio during a press call in London to 're-affirm the BRDC's commitment to keep the British Grand Prix' and update the media on the 'Master Plan', he added that while it would be daft to be complacent, he is hopeful 'sense will prevail'.

"I am confident it [the British GP] will be there [on the calendar in 2010]," he noted. "I think everyone wants it - Formula 1 wants it. Sense will prevail and we will go forward."

NEWS FROM THE TEAMS:

McLaren - Fernando Alonso (#1), Lewis Hamilton (#2):

McLaren returns to Europe as top dog in Formula One, having taken both wins on F1's transatlantic jaunt and occupying the top spots in both championships. However, it is its rookie, Lewis Hamilton, that has been taking the points and the plaudits, opening his victory account with victory in each of the last two races.

The team arrives in France with a 35-point lead in the constructors' championship and with Hamilton leading team-mate Fernando Alonso by ten points in the drivers' standings. The Briton now returns to circuits that are familiar to him from his time in both GP2 and the F3 Euroseries, and it remains to be seen whether that will allow him to increase his advantage over the rest of the field, even if his memories of last year at Magny-Cours aren't too good.

"I just want to get back out on track," Hamilton admits, "My aims remain the same, to take it race-by-race and keep focused on scoring good points for myself and the team. The French round of the GP2 championship last year was not my best weekend - I had a coming together in the first race and therefore started race two in 19th, but I did make my way up through the field to finish fifth and score some points. It is possible to overtake here and, although you always want to be on pole, you can pass and the short pit-lane means there are more strategy options."

Alonso, meanwhile, finished second to Michael Schumacher in France last year and, with the German now safely in retirement, will be hoping to go one better to get his title challenge back on track.

"I have always liked racing at this track," he says, "When you hear people talk about circuits that are technical, Magny-Cours is definitely one of them. My favourite sections are the two high-speed chicanes at the back of the circuit. We go through them at speeds of up to 200km/h, which is very fast for a chicane. It's very special to drive through them and unique in F1.

"After the back-to-back races, it seems like a long time since we last raced, so I want to get back on track. The MP4-22 is a quick car and I hope we can get the best out of it at Magny-Cours. There are some similarities between Magny-Cours and Monaco, and the car performed well at Monaco, so I am looking forward to getting it out on track in France."

Team CEO Martin Whitmarsh admits that, while Hamilton and Alonso remain the class of the field at present, Ferrari, especially, won't lie down for long.

"Last week, we completed one of our most intensive tests of the year so far, and our test team worked tirelessly to prove a myriad of components alongside a massive amount of effort being put in across the organisation," he said, "We have a fight on our hands to maintain, and ideally extend, the lead we have in the constructors' championship and the drivers' table. Ferrari and BMW are not standing still, so our job is to keep providing Fernando and Lewis with a car capable of winning. There is no complacency and the motivation is considerable."

Renault - Giancarlo Fisichella (#3), Heikki Kovalainen (#4):

What Whitmarsh failed to mention is the fact that reigning world champion Renault is rapidly becoming a threat to the top three, although BMW Sauber is the team most closely in the firing line as the regie improves. Engineering director Pat Symonds promises that there is more to come too.

"Although the results don't quite tell the full story, I think it's indicative of the fact that the tide is turning - we are very close to BMW now and racing them hard," he claims, "There's plenty of activity at the factory, that's for sure. As we better understand the problems we have been suffering from, we are able to improve the car. There will be enhancements for France and Britain. And that's in addition to continue the push with our normal development processes. There are a lot of new bits coming for the car, and you can be certain that we will keep on fighting."

Symonds is confident that the improvement shown since Monaco will continue in France, where Magny-Cours has traditionally found favour with Renault.

"Magny-Cours is known as a very smooth circuit - although the new final chicane now gives the cars a severe pounding," he says, "The challenge is very different to that of the low-medium downforce tracks in Canada and the USA and, if you look back to circuits like Barcelona, we were struggling there at the time. But since then, some very positive steps forward have been made, and I certainly believe our performance will be better."

Although he failed to match rookie team-mate Heikki Kovalainen in either Canada or the USA, Giancarlo Fisichella is confident that he can get back to the sort of form that saw him take fourth in Monaco.

"As soon as I started running in Canada, I knew that we had taken a good step forward with the car," he notes, "We were quick, consistent and I thought that, in the race, we could fight with Ferrari and BMW - and that was how it turned out. At Indy, the car was good again, so it is getting better all the time. Scoring more points is a priority and, after that, we have to race with BMW and try to beat them. They are the team we are fighting in the championship, and we have to try and out-score them in each race from now on."

Kovalainen, by contrast, heads to Magny-Cours on a high, having finally found his rhythm as he scored good points in both 'flyaway' races.

"I think I have some good momentum going at the moment - and I want to maintain that in France this weekend," the Finn admits, "Montreal was my best result so far in F1, and Indianapolis was my best race - a strong weekend, no mistakes, no problems, five laps led and a good level of performance from me and from the car. I am still improving every time I drive, learning and putting it into practice. And as we develop the car, that is showing in my race results.

"I always believed that things would come together for me, and I was positive even in the difficult moments. I think that the results in North America have changed the perceptions around me, not my confidence in myself. My job is to focus on the essentials, block out the rest - and drive to my full potential. It's no secret that France is a really important race for Renault, and racing in front of all the people from the factory at Viry and the other Renault factories, makes the atmosphere very special for us. When I last raced in Magny-Cours in GP2, I had one win and one podium, so it's a circuit I enjoy. I think we made another step with the car last week at Silverstone, so I am looking forward to getting out there and seeing how things stack up."

Ferrari - Felipe Massa (#5), Kimi Raikkonen (#6):

Outclassed again by Mclaren at Indianapolis, Ferrari knows that Magny-Cours needs to produce a better result or it can begin to kiss goodbye to its title hopes for another year. After a positive test at Silverstone, however, both Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen head to France in positive frame of mind.

"Magny-Cours and the French Grand Prix could be a good weekend for us," the Brazilian claims, "Last year, I finished on the podium and it was the start of a good run for me in the second half of the championship as things started to come right for us.

"When you look back to Canada, maybe we were not quite as quick as the McLarens but, in the race I was ahead of Alonso and maybe I could have finished on the podium, which would have been a good result, even if it had not been possible to win. Our aim there was to get as many points as possible, even if we could not match the pace of our competitor. At Indy, we looked slightly more competitive, if again not quite on the pace of our rivals. Finishing on the podium was not a complete disaster and, looking back at the last two races, if it had not been for that problem in Montreal, then the championship would still be completely open.

"Now, it is still open, but not looking quite so straightforward and we have to be careful not to make any mistakes. If you look at the recent past championships, sometimes we had two weekends better than Renault and sometimes it was the other way round. The competition was very close right to the end of the season. This time, even if our rivals have been better than us over the past couple of races, I think we can fight back and that is what we have been working towards back at the factory. I think we have some good ideas for the next upcoming races which can change the situation."

Raikkonen looked more racy at Indianapolis than he has done for a few races, but it was only his team-mate that he was battling with. However, two days of testing at Silverstone and a vote of confidence from Ferrari's top man, Luca di Montezemolo, has the Finn in good heart for France.

"Last week was a prefect week," he says, "We had a very good test in Silverstone as the car was much better than at the races in North America, and I'm really very confident for the race at Magny-Cours. We have new components, above all in the section of aerodynamics; and we have taken a step forward as far as the performance is concerned. If it is enough, we'll only know in France, but what we know for sure is that we think that we are competitive."

A fan of Magny-Cours from a driving point of view, the Finn is keen to add a victory there to his tally. However, he knows that Ferrari needs to raise its game on a Saturday afternoon.

"This year, it is fundamental to start from the front row, because it is very difficult to drive when you're stuck behind other cars," he explains, "Unfortunately, I've experienced that quite often, but I'm more and more confident with the F2007 now. We found a good set-up in the race at Indianapolis and in testing, so we have to transfer that to the next two grands prix."

Honda - Jenson Button (#7), Rubens Barrichello (#8):

While the majority of its rivals ran at Silverstone, Honda joined engine partner Super Aguri at Jerez, determined to take further steps on the road to making the RA107 competitive for the return to Europe.

"We made some good progress at Jerez, where the excellent weather allowed us to fully complete our planned programme," senior technical director Shuhei Nakamoto reports, "We were able to sign off various new mechanical parts and an aerodynamic upgrade, as well as making further improvements to the stability under braking. We expect a small improvement in performance in both qualifying and the race at Magny-Cours."

Rubens Barrichello's race at the USGP was cut short after getting involved in the first corner accident that also claimed Ralf Schumacher and David Coulthard,and the Brazilian is hoping for a greater involvement this weekend.

"I really enjoy racing at Magny-Cours as it is a really flowing circuits which the drivers generally enjoy," he notes, "The track has a mixture of high- and slow-speed turns and the high-speed changes of direction between turns four and five and seven and eight are particularly challenging."

Despite the attrition in Indianapolis, team-mate Jenson Button only finished twelfth, leaving Honda pointless for the seventh straight race. However, like Barrichello, the Briton is looking forward to racing in France.

"The Circuit de Nevers is quite tricky to get your lap absolutely right, but it is a lot of fun to drive - and very fast," he explains, "The start is particularly important, regardless of what side of the grid you are on, and you have to position yourself well for the first two corners to get a good run down the straight to the Adelaide hairpin. This is really the only place on the circuit where you can have a real chance of overtaking."

BMW Sauber - Nick Heidfeld (#9), Robert Kubica (#10):

As the last two races have shown, even the most impressive formbook means little if you don't get both cars across the finish line, and a crash and a retirement saw the BMW Sauber team leave North America feeling decidedly short-changed, even if Nick Heidfeld did manage a podium in Canada.

The German, who was forced out of the USGP with a rare hydraulic problem, is keen to get himself back into the points in France, and is confident that the F1.07 will remain a potent force at Magny-Cours.

"Although we only picked up a single point in the USA, it's clear that we are still making progress," he insists, "In terms of pure performance, our car was the second-best at Indianapolis - I could have qualified third and also finished third in the race."

Another pre-race medical examination will determine whether Robert Kubica is fit to return to the cockpit after his shunt in Montreal and, having been ruled out of the USGP - where he was replaced by the point-scoring Sebastian Vettel - the Pole is eager to get the go-ahead to race.

"I can't wait to get back into the car," he admits, "I may not have been given the green light to compete in the USA, but I hope the medical examination at Magny-Cours will be a formality. The reason why I wasn't allowed to drive at Indianapolis had nothing to do with how I felt. Instead, the problem was the risk involved in suffering a second accident within such a short space of time. That's also why I wasn't allowed to test last week. But I've used the time to focus intensively on preparing for this next race."

Unusually, BMW struggled at Magny-Cours last year, but team director Mario Theissen is hopeful that there will be no repeat in 2007.

"We were up against it a bit here last season, but managed to escape with a point despite starting from eleventh and 16th," he muses, "The team has come to expect good grid positions in the top ten nowadays - and Sebastian met that standard in his first ever F1 qualifying at Indianapolis. We have finished in the points in every race so far this season but, in the last two GPs, we only managed to get one car to the finish, so we are looking to pick up points with both cars at Magny-Cours"

Both cars will be running with the same engines as at Indianapolis, even though the regulations would have allowed it to change Heidfeld's V8 this time around.

Toyota - Ralf Schumacher (#11), Jarno Trulli (#12):

After Jarno Trulli scored his best result of the season with sixth place at Indianapolis, the Toyota team heads to Magny-Cours in confident mood, and testing at Silverstone last week only served to boost morale further as both drivers set fast laps during a trouble-free three days.

Magny-Cours also sees a return to more standard aerodynamic set-ups and, while the team will benefit from several aero updates to the TF107, general manager Pascal Vasselon is confident that there can be some repeat of last year's French GP when Ralf Schumacher took fourth place and Jarno Trulli only missed out on a podium because of a brake problem.

"Ever since Monaco, we have been using special aero packages - Monaco because it is high downforce, but also Canada and Indianapolis, which are closer to a low downforce package," Vasselon explains, "In France, we will return to a package closer to that which we used in Barcelona, although we have since developed it with new parts for this weekend. We are looking forward with optimism to returning to the package which we have focused most of our effort on."

While Trulli goes to France on a high, team-mate Schumacher will be looking to bounce back from a first corner shunt at a circuit where he has tasted success in the past.

"To retire from the race at the first corner in Indianapolis was obviously very disappointing, especially after a pretty good qualifying performance, but I am determined to have a better race in France," the German insists, "I have a good record at Magny-Cours, and have happy memories of my first pole position there in 2001 and victory there in 2003, and Jarno's result [in the USGP] demonstrated what the team can achieve. I expect us to be fighting for points again."

Red Bull Racing - David Coulthard (#14), Mark Webber (#15):

The Red Bull team returned from North America buoyed by the fact that Mark Webber finally secured some points after a series of disappointing races, but unhappy that its other car had been taken out at turn one.

Both drivers still wanted more from their afternoon, however - Coulthard for obvious reasons, and Webber simply to increase the performance of his RB3 with 'more downforce, more reliability, more speed' and both were in action during the three-day test at Silverstone last week. Although there were weather and mechanical problems to contend with, RBR packed up for Magny-Cours optimistic that it would add to its tally after assessing a new aero package and some suspension geometry changes.

"It was a busy few days, but we got through the majority of our programme," comments chief test engineer Ian Morgan, "We have found solutions for most of the problems we encountered and have been able to sign-off aero and suspension parts for the next two grands prix."

Williams - Nico Rosberg (#16), Alex Wurz (#17):

Williams has had cause for many a celebration at Nevers Magny-Cours, with five victories, half of all available poles and five fastest laps coming its way in 16 years - although that leaves it second to Ferrari as the most successful F1 team at the circuit. The steady improvement in performance demonstrated over the season may not be enough to add to that tally, but the team is hoping that a revised aero package will bring a points reward on Sunday.

After two competitive races in North America, we are looking forward to the French Grand Prix," technical director Sam Michael confirms, "We'll be bringing some aerodynamic and mechanical upgrades to the race, which are part of our ongoing development programme already yielding good performance results on the FW29. We have also been doing some more work on our reliability at last week's Silverstone test. Reliability is much stronger now than in previous years, but clearly we still have a couple of small weaknesses, highlighted by some separate oil leaks that we experienced in practice and during the race in Indy. We now have solid solutions in place for these faults."

Second year driver Nico Rosberg has plenty of reasons of his own for wanting to return to Magny-Cours, and will be looking to belatedly add to his points tally this weekend.

"I really like the track and I've always seemed to do well there," the German explains, "It's a nice place to go to and has a good vibe, so it's a shame this is going to be our last visit. I have good memories of Magny, as I've won a few races there - and it was where I won my first GP2 race. We've definitely made some progress with the car as our test at Silverstone last week went really well, so it's also going to be exciting to see how the new upgrades work in competition."

Team-mate Alex Wurz echoed the belief that testing could have given Williams a nudge forward in the intense battle for midfield supremacy.

"All the other teams have also been testing upgrades as we have, but I think we have the car to bring home some points from Magny-Cours," the Austrian insists, "Personally, I like the track, but I have not yet raced on the new layout of the last sector, although I am sure that I will tune into the modified section very quickly. There's one certainty this weekend and that's that it will again be a very competitive field and another fierce fight for points."

Scuderia Toro Rosso - Vitantonio Liuzzi (#18), Scott Speed (#19):

After a promising Canadian GP, in which both drivers could have scored had they not crashed out, America proved to be less successful for Tonio Liuzzi and Scott Speed, the local favourite even having the misfortune of the equipment turning on him in the garage!

Both drivers lamented the continuing lack of the quick-shift gearbox that the STR2 has been waiting for since the start of the year, but should finally get their hands on it at Magny-Cours after a relatively successful test at Silverstone last week.

Although the weather and the usual gremlins - notably a power train failure - played a part in delaying progress during the three days, technical director Giorgio Ascanelli was delighted to confirm several developments for this weekend's return to Europe.

"We did our homework on various solutions; some paid off and some didn't," he reckons, "Until the final afternoon, general reliability seemed good, and we managed to put the equivalent of three race distances on the same quick-shift gearbox. In performance terms, it seems better too. To sum up, the three days allowed us to sign off new steering and suspension components - and the quick-shift box - for the French Grand Prix."

Spyker F1 - Christijan Albers (#20), Adrian Sutil (#21):

Although the results tend to suggest otherwise, Spyker had another race to be satisfied with at Indianapolis, with the pace of the F8-VII again closer to those ahead of it on the grid, and Adrian Sutil turning in a promising - and unsullied - performance right from the start.

The German again out-qualified more experienced team-mate Christijan Albers, to line up 21st, but it was his start that caught the attention, the #20 car vaulting eight places up the field on the opening lap, and continuing to run on the coattails of the midfield until the pit-stop window opened. Sutil, however, remained encouraged.

"The season has been so far very good," he claims, "We have, of course, had some problems in some of the races, but I finally had a great race in Indy. It was better than Canada but, even in first 20 laps, I was competitive and racing the Toyota and Aguri in front. It could have been a good race, it was a shame not to finish.

"I hope, at Magny-Cours, we are able to do a really great race. I have my experience now, I know the track so I am really confident I can do a good race. I did Friday practice session there with the team last year, and I did an F3 race in 2004 with the Kolles team and it was one of our best races. Then I had a test there with ASM with Lewis Hamilton - I think I beat him by two hundredths of a second!"

Team-mate Christijan Albers also made the most of the skirmish at the start, running in the high teens before a combination of heavy fuel load and blue flags dropped him further down the order. The Dutchman eventually took the chequered flag in 15th place, but he too is pleased with the way things are going.

"We are making good progress everyday," he points out, "You saw it last week at the test - we were immediately on the pace, with a 1min 23.3 lap on the first run with new tyres. It's very close to Adrian's time at the end of the second day, so you can really see that we are getting there with the development. It was a shame on the last day that we didn't have a chance to better this lap due to an electrical problem - I know we could have gone even quicker. We went well and, if we keep going at this rate, it will get even better.

"It is the same as always for France - to give it maximum attack and get the best result we can. We have to get the set-up right, get the confidence high and then go out and do our best. I like the track and I have done okay on it so far - in fact, the only drama is getting out of the circuit on a Sunday night!

Super Aguri F1 - Takuma Sato (#22), Anthony Davidson (#23):

Super Aguri's mercurial season continued at Indianapolis with its fortunes taking a minor downward turn after the high points of Montreal. Anthony Davidson finished a lap down in eleventh, but worse befell team-mate Takuma Sato, who spun off while under investigation for passing under yellow flags - and earned himself a ten-place grid penalty for Magny-Cours as a result.

Sporting director Graham Taylor insisted, however, that team remained on course to achieve its goals.

"I believe that the team has performed above its station on all levels," he says, "The driver pairing that we have has enabled us to make steps forward in our preparations for each race. The addition of Ant's technical ability, paired with Taku's F1 experience has settled into a good relationship immediately, with the engineering team benefiting from both cars in all sessions over a race weekend. This has put pressure on everyone in the team and, on many occasions, we have been able to show our true potential. Our target was to join the F1 fraternity and score a point. Now that we have amassed four points, it has left us hungry for more and increased our fighting spirit even further. Ant's time for scoring a point should not be far away.

"The preparations for Magny-Cours have been a challenge, with effectively all the teams having to race four times in five weekends. Getting the freight back from the flyaways and preparing the cars in a very short time scale, combined with testing in between these races, stretches a small team such as Super Aguri F1. Both cars will receive an aero upgrade for the French Grand Prix, and both drivers have fresh engines for this race but, with the penalty that Taku has to carry for this event, it forces us to have a different strategy on his car. It will be a tough weekend for him, but the team and drivers have high levels of confidence and spirit - that's the Super Aguri way."

TYRES:

Bridgestone brings its soft and medium compound Potenzas to face the challenges of Magny-Cours this weekend, knowing that the French circuit presents a very different test to that of the USGP at Indianapolis, where the same tyres were on offer two weeks ago.

"The first challenge of Magny-Cours is to get there, but fortunately we have a good logistics operation to ensure this happens," head of track engineering operations Kees van de Grint smiles, "Once there, we find a very interesting circuit with long fast corners, which require good stability and also slow, tight corners which is where good traction is very important, as is a rapid response to a change in direction.

"Magny-Cours is also a challenge for the compound of tyre as there are two distinct types of tarmac on the circuit and these have different characteristics. Two sectors have been resurfaced and are likely to be more slippery before they get rubbered in. Obviously, the tyre compound has to be able to work over the entire circuit, and our predictions are that this should be the case. History also shows us that this can be one of the hottest races on the calendar so we will expect to see high tyre temperatures."

THE TRACK:

Race Distance: 70 laps - Circuit Length: 2.741 miles (4.411 kms)

The Circuit de Nevers is located in Burgundy, the geographic heartland of France, and has been home to the French Grand Prix since 1991. The twelve-turn circuit is blessed with a smooth surface and boasts generous run-off areas, although its twisty layout means that overtaking possibilities in dry conditions are usually limited to the slow Adelaide hairpin. The race organisers tried to answer that criticism in 2004 by replacing the final chicane and increasing the run offarea at the final Lycee turn, but the alterations have met with limited success.

Lap times vary noticeably at Magny-Cours depending on the ambient temperature. In common with other tight circuits, Formula One cars are set up to race with high levels of downforce, without completely compromising straight-line speed.

THE WINNER?

Once again, it is hard to look beyond the usual suspects when discussing potential winners at Magny-Cours but, if anything, the list has dwindled from four to two in recent races, with McLaren taking a step forward and leaving the squabble between Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso. The Briton has had the upper hand in the last two rounds and now returns to more familiar venues with momentum behind him. Alonso, however, will be keen to regain the upper hand while Ferrari is trailing and prevent his team-mate from pulling too far ahead. Ferrari reckons it found something in testing, so it will be interesting to note the gap between the Scuderia and the leaders.

LAST SEASON:

Michael Schumacher won the French GP for the eighth time, carrying the momentum from his USGP success to Magny-Cours and further raising the temperature in the championship battle. The race was hardly a classic, as the German led from lights to flag, taking advantage of chief rival Fernando Alonso being bottled up behind the second Ferrari of Felipe Massa. Although the pair swapped places during the pit-stops, Schumacher was already too far ahead. Ralf Schumacher claimed fourth for Toyota, ahead of Kimi Raikkonen and Giancarlo Fisichella. Pedro de la Rosa scooped two points after a late call-up to replace the NASCAR-bound Juan Montoya, while Nick Heidfeld salvaged a point after a disappointing qualifying session for BMW Sauber...
