The 1999 French Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on June 27, 1999 at the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours near Magny-Cours, France. It was the seventh race of the 1999 Formula One season.

The race was held in wet conditions which at one point required the safety car to be deployed.[citation needed]

Damon Hill hinted after the race that this one could have been his last, or if he did compete at Silverstone in the next race he might leave Formula One afterwards.[citation needed]

Toranosuke Takagi was disqualified for using tyres which had been marked for his team-mate, Pedro de la Rosa.[citation needed]
