Charles Leclerc will be determined to make it two victories in a row in the current season when he competes in the French Grand Prix.
However, the Ferrari driver endured a disappointing race at last year's French Grand Prix as he finished 16th having started seventh on the grid. 
Leclerc is coming off a successful race in the current campaign which was the  Austrian Grand Prix on July 10 - winning the event.

The Monte Carlo-born star overcame late-race mechanical issues to hold off Max Verstappen and win the Austrian Grand Prix, and it was his third win of the season.
Verstappen of Red Bull Racing-RBPT and Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton finished second and third respectively following an entertaining race. 
Looking at the 2022 Drivers' Championship standings, Verstappen is still at the top, while his Red Bull Racing teammate Sergio Perez is placed third on the table. 
Leclerc moved up to the second spot on the standings after winning the Austrian Grand Prix and he will reduce Verstappen's lead if he wins the French Grand Prix.

"I was quite confident. The pace has been strong in the last five races," Leclerc said after the Austrian Grand Prix.
"Obviously, I had quite often said that on a Saturday night, but not only to say it, I believed in it in all five races. So it's good to finally show it on a Sunday and [to have] a clean weekend.
Every win is special, but this one feels just amazing. The last 15 laps were on the limit with the issue we had, but we brought it home. Today, we had a really strong pace and some great battles," he added.
"I worked hard last night to find where I could still improve and it made the difference today. I’m very happy."
Red Bull Racing-RBPT are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Ferrari and Mercedes respectively.
