Does the sprint racing format in all Great prizes de Formula 1 from 2022? Although it sounds crazy, since it would be something that would radically modify the history of the highest category, it is something that those responsible for the specialty seriously analyze. At least that hinted Stefano Domenicali, CEO of F.1, to the Gazzetta Dello Sport.
This two races in the same weekend debuted in the past Grand Prix of Great Britain and will be repeated this year in two other competitions: the Italian Grand Prix and possibly the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Saturday is a 100 kilometer competition whose result orders the starting grid for Sunday's race, which remains the most relevant event of the weekend. The winner of that test is considered for the statistics as the poleman and not the one who dominates the classification, which in this case takes place on Friday.
“In my head is the desire to promote all kinds of events that are contested with the sprint qualification system. Therein lies the conviction of always running with this format every weekend. We are going to study it at the end of this year, but we are in no hurry ”, Domenicali explained.
“We have offered a different content and the fact that there is importance in the results of the three days is an extra element. Now we have to analyze the details and see what we can improve for Monza. We are going to take into account what happens there and in the third experiment. Then, we will see what to do in 2022 ", clarified the former Ferrari boss.
In any case, Domenicali has already made his position clear: "We dared to do something different and this attitude has been welcomed to attract new fans." In addition, he claims that the pilots also liked this system. "They like running more than doing long runs on Fridays", culminated.
