Note: David Coulthard celebrated his 200th grand prix in the Spanish GP - two weeks before Monaco. While the Spanish GP was indeed his 200th race, Monaco was where he made his 200th start. The discrepancy was caused by the fact that he didn't take the start in the 2006 US GP following several accidents for Michelin-shod drivers.

Like Coulthard, Alonso didn't take the start in the 2006 US Grand Prix. So while his 200th race start was at the 2013 Chinese GP, he celebrated his 200th grand prix a few weeks earlier in Malaysia.

Schumacher celebrated his 200th GP at the 2004 Spanish GP, although the the Monaco GP of that year marked his 200th race start. The discrepancy was caused by an engine failure on the formation lap of 1996 French GP, which forced a DNS.

How Red Bull took French GP "payback" on a day of Mercedes mistakes

The French GP has been a stronghold for Mercedes since Paul Ricard's return to the calendar in 2018.

The Mercedes lap that puts F1 victory fight back on a knife-edge

Red Bull led the way after the first two practice sessions for the 2021 French Grand Prix, but only just ahead of Mercedes. There was all the usual practice skulduggery complicating the performance picture, but one aspect seen at the world champion squad gave it a ‘surprise’ lift, as it looks to leave its street-circuit struggles firmly in the past.

How Ferrari got its F1 recovery plan working

OPINION: An interloper squad got amongst the title contenders during Formula 1’s street-circuit mini-break, where Red Bull left with the points lead in both championships. But, as the campaign heads back to purpose-built venues once again, how the drivers of the two top teams compare in one crucial area will be a major factor in deciding which squad stays in or retakes the top spot
