Jean Alesi has been confirmed as the Ambassador and Advisor by the Circuit Paul Ricard, which will host the French Grand Prix next season. Formula 1 will have a race in France for the first time since 2008, when Magny-Cours held its last race.

The Frenchman is currently working on developments at the track including all of the activities and will represent the circuit worldwide. The former Ferrari driver stated that he was very happy to pick up the role and represent the circuit.

"I am very happy to represent the Paul Ricard," said Alesi who won one race in his F1 career. "This circuit is special for me: I made here my first steps in racing at Winfield school and I started my first Grand Prix in 1989 (pictured) at the wheel of the Tyrrell 018. This place is symbolic for me and I am very proud to represent it."

The French Grand Prix will take place from the 22nd-24th June next year, and will commence the start of the sport's first ever triple-header, with the following two weekends containing the Grands Prix of Austria and Great Britain.
