From press release
Formula 1 will return to Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours from September 11 to 13 when Ferrari, Mercedes AMG and Sahara Force India conduct their annual Young Driver Tests at the French venue.
The 17-turn, 4.4km track will provide the teams' aspiring grand prix stars with a suitably demanding challenge as they tackle a combination of flowing, high-speed corners and slower technical sections. These characteristics also represent an ideal layout on which to hone car set-ups ahead of the season’s crucial final seven rounds.
Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours is no stranger to the roar of Formula 1 engines having played host to the French Grand Prix a total of 18 times between 1991 and 2008.
The venue has continued to stage numerous top-line racing events ever since, including international single-seater, touring car, GT and motorcycle championships.
During this period extensive upgrades have also been made to the circuit and its facilities, while the opening of a new motorway linking the track with Paris has significantly cut journey times and improved access.
Set-up for the test begins at the circuit on Sunday, September 9 before cars take to the track on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the following week.
