One of the novelties of the 2021 season of the F1 was sprint format that was tested in the Great Britain Prizes, Italy y San Pablo, in Brazil.
The idea of defining the starting grid with a qualifying race on Saturday was a success for the World Cup organizer, who plans to double the number of GP's with this system.
Specifically, during the 2022 season the events that will have an extra race will be the Bahrain Grand Prix, Emilia Romagna, Canada, Austria, Netherlands y San Pablo, the latter being the only one to repeat.
With that nomination, the objective of Liberty Medium to maintain the tradition in the most emblematic races such as the GPs of Great Britain and Italy.
The list of events with sprint format has already been communicated to the teams and will be made official once some other aspects derived from this year's experience are defined.
Among them stand out who will be considered poleman of the GP, if the one who is the fastest in the classification or the one who wins the sprint, as happened in the pilot test of 2021.
Another topic under discussion is the punctuation system, which could award the top six rather than those who stand on the podium.
This increase in sprint-format races would also come with a budget cap increase that would be around three million euros, a figure that arises from the 500.000 euros of extra expenses that this GP scheme implies.
