In 1906 the Grand Prix Automobile de France was organised by the Automobile Club de France. This is the first Grand Prix in history. It was not until 1950 – with the creation of the Formula 1 World Championship – that the Formula 1 Grand Prix de France was included in the calendar of the premier motor sport discipline. Juan Manuel Fangio won this first Grand Prix de France on the Reims-Gueux circuit in his Alfa Romeo. This Grand Prix remains the longest Formula 1 race in history with 601.8 km covered.
