Formula 1 qualifying results: Starting grid for 2021 French Grand Prix

Vive la France.

Saturdays have been equally as eventful as Sundays this Formula 1 season: Charles Leclerc ended up on pole after a red flag stopped the session for the Monaco quali, while four red flags blew through for the Azerbaijan GP, an F1 record.

This Sunday, pole position once again belongs to Max Verstappen, his second pole of the year.

The driver's and constructor's championships are still wide open entering Sunday's Round 7 race: Max Verstappen leads Lewis Hamilton by the thinnest of margins, with just four points separating the top two drivers on the table. Red Bull currently leads Mercedes in the constructor's championship as well, with Sergio Perez helping widen the gap at Baku.

It's the first in a triple-header of races coming your way.

Here's how they'll line up this Sunday in France:
