The press release issued today by the FIA specifies how the Sprint Qualification has received the favorable opinion of the Formula 1 stakeholders. Therefore, the project has convinced economically and will be re-proposed in 2022. From the original plans of the area manager motorsport for Liberty Media Ross Brawn there were six sprint races. After the president of Formula 1 Stefano Sundays has even opened to a seventh, the hypothesis at the most probable moment is the initial one, supported by the British.
There will be a more exact evaluation after the Grand Prix dispute Brazil, which will host the third and final Sprint Qualification of the season, but the basic idea is clear: to increase the races and the round of money, so the short races will at least double compared to this year. As he also reported RaceFans, the F1 Commission’s plans currently concern the organization of six sprint races instead of seven, to be organized probably on circuits that may need an additional event to offer a satisfying show.
A further modification approved by the Commission would be the condensation of the weekend program of Formula 1 in three days instead of four (also including the drivers’ conferences on Thursdays). And finally i would have been lengthened winter tests up to five consecutive days, but reducing the time between their end and the start of the World Cup to eight days. From Friday 15 October – when the 2022 calendar will be voted on – more should be known.
