It appears Ferrari is finally getting its strategy act together.

After costly mistakes earlier this season, it executed a perfect plan in the last race in Austria, and in qualifying for French Grand Prix, it pulled off a masterstroke by using Carlos Sainz to help Charles Leclerc to pole position with the aid of a tow.

Knowing Sainz would be at the back of the grid due to engine penalties, it deployed the Spanish driver in a dutiful role which he executed superbly.

But what does Ferrari have up its sleeve for the race, with Leclerc facing the duel Red Bull threat of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez directly behind him?

As for Mercedes, the team was again best of the rest as Lewis Hamilton starts fourth and George Russell sixth, but in a car severely lacking in pace compared to the front two teams.

With all that in mind, below are all the details you require to ensure you stay abreast of the French Grand Prix.

Okay, okay, we know we predicted Hamilton initially as we felt the car would suit the track, and it has to a certain extent, but it is woefully lacking in pace which the team do not understand.

In the wake of qualifying you have to favour Verstappen, even though he is not on pole, a starting position, though, not as crucial at the Paul Ricard Circuit as at many other venues.

Red Bull did seem to have the upper hand going into qualifying, and but for the tow as mentioned at the top, it is likely Verstappen would be out front.

With the two-against-one scenario also in Red Bull's favour at the front of the grid, Verstappen has the edge over Leclerc on this occasion.

And hey, from fourth, who knows what Hamilton could still yet achieve.

WINNER: Max Verstappen
