Magny-Cours, France
Listen to Jarno Trulli's track commentary  

Magny-Cours is a hot, humid average track in the middle of nowhere
Location: Magny-Cours, France
Date: 3 July
Length: 2.741 miles
Rating (out of 10): 4
The French Grand Prix track at Magny-Cours is not one of Formula One's most popular destinations.

It gets a mixed reception from the drivers. Some, like Jarno Trulli, like it; others, like David Coulthard, think it a joke of a Grand Prix track.

It is smack bang in the middle of nowhere with an atmosphere so calm and rural as to be non-existent, although the food provides some distraction.

Historically, Magny-Cours has often produced soporific races.
