Paul Ricard could remove Mistral chicane for Formula 1

Paul Ricard could be set to reinstate the entire length of the famous Mistral straight for next year's French Grand Prix return.

Paul Ricard could be set to reinstate the entire length of the famous Mistral straight for next year's French Grand Prix return.

Last year, as it emerged that the circuit will host the first French Grand Prix for a decade in 2018, reports said that a chicane would in fact divide the two halves of the famous Mistral straight.

Yet France's L'Equipe says that decision could now be up for review.

"It would be more sensational if we arrived with more speed at the Signes corner," French driver Esteban Ocon said.

"But if [the chicane] stays, there is another opportunity for overtaking."

The French sports daily says that a final decision will be taken after consultations with "other drivers and teams".
