Ferrari, Mercedes and Force India will run at the circuit between September 11th and 13th.
The track is unchanged since it last held the French Grand Prix in 2008, the 18th time F1 visited the circuit.
Circuit chairman Serge Saulnier said: “I am thrilled to be able to confirm that Formula 1 cars will return to Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours next month.
“We have worked tirelessly to upgrade the venue, which has just been homologated to F1 standards for another four years, and I am certain that the teams and drivers will appreciate the work that has been put in.
“What?óÔé¼Ôäós more, this is an extremely positive step forward as we seek to return Formula 1 racing to our circuit. With Magny-Cours a candidate to host future French Grands Prix, it will be fantastic to showcase the track and our staff?óÔé¼Ôäós know-how to the high-calibre F1 personnel who will be on-site.”
Williams, Marussia and HRT have already held their test at Silverstone. The remaining teams – McLaren, Red Bull, Lotus, Toro Rosso, Sauber and Caterham – are yet to hold their young drivers’ test.
