Grand Prix de France, Monaco, 1933

The first Grand Prix de France was held in 1906 (this was issued by the Ivory Coast in 1981) although the first World Championships were organized in 1925 with the French Grand Prix, the Italian Grand Prix, the Belgian Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.

The French Grand Prix was part of the Formula One championships from their inception in 1950 until 2008. It was designated the European Grand Prix four times between 1924 and 1966, when this title was an honorary designation given each year to one grand prix race in Europe.

The race has been held at various racetracks throughout France, such as the Autodrome de Montlhéry. Since 1991 its permanent home has been the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours. (wikimedia)
