The French Grand Prix could make a surprise return to the Formula 1 calendar in 2018, with plans for a race at Paul Ricard set to be revealed on Monday.

While several historic races like Germany and Brazil are fighting for their future, France could be set to return to the schedule after a 10-year absence.

According to a report on Europe 1, the event could be organised with the help of several local authorities, including Provence-Alpes-Côtes d'Azur region, the Var department and the city of Toulon.

The contract would cover five seasons, running from 2018 to 2022.

No official announcement has yet been made to confirm the return of the event, but a press conference has been scheduled for next week.

The conference, regarding the future of the French GP, will take place at the premises of the Automobile Club de France in Paris, in the presence of Nicolas Deschaux, head of the FFSA, and Christian Estrosi, president of the regional council of PACA.

The French GP has not taken place since 2008, when it was hosted at Magny-Cours, in Nevers. The Paul Ricard Circuit has already held the event on 14 occasions between 1971 and 1990.
