2022 MotoGP French Grand Prix: When is it, how to watch and more

This will be the first French GP since before the COVID-19 pandemic to welcome a capacity crowd, and coincides with Quartararo's homecoming as the reigning world champion. Quartararo is France's first world champion in MotoGP.

Quartararo comes into the French GP leading the standings after his dominant victory in Portugal and a second-place finish behind Ducati's Francesco Bagnaia last time out at the Spanish GP - the Yamaha rider's advantage standing at seven points from Aprilia's Aleix Espargaro.

The big story coming into the French GP is the shock news that Suzuki will quit MotoGP at the end of 2022, having begun discussions with Dorna Sports about breaking its five-year contract with the series.

Here are the full session times for the 2022 French GP.
