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 has been part of the Formula One championships since its inception in 1950. Over the years, the annual competition has been held at various racetracks throughout France but since 1991 it has been held at its permanent home at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours.

The 2004 race was in doubt for several weeks because of financial problems. However, the race went ahead as planned in the end. Once again, though, the race's future is in doubt, as it has been left off the provisional 2005 Formula One calendar.
