Formula 1 teams are allowed to vote this week on the proposal to complete Sprint GP on three race weekends this year. We are talking about Canada, Italy and Brazil.
The new Formula 1 CEO, Stefano Domenicelli, mentioned it in his most recent telephone press conference: If it runs as he wishes, the GP sprint race will take place this year rather than the usual qualification. Formula 1 rulers expect more action on the track.
The former Ferrari team owner from Italy did not go into details, but now details are leaking through the proposal that the team will probably vote at the F1 Commission meeting on Thursday. Accordingly, the new racing format should be tried on three World Cup dates in Canada, Italy and Brazil.
If the proposal comes up – requiring 30 votes out of 28, each team has one vote and the FIA and F1 each have ten votes – then the second practice session on Friday for Sprint GP at three Will be qualified. Same race weekend.
Saturday’s race, which must be 100 km or more than one-third of the distance of the race, then determines the starting grid for the Grand Prix, not just Sunday. The first eight should also be rewarded with World Cup points for their performance.
And to reduce the high costs associated with the sprint race, Formula 1 officials have said that according to “BBC Sport”, to pay an additional $ 75,000 per race to each team. This is a nominal amount for Formula 1 dimensions.
Domenici warned in his press conference: “We have to be open to new ideas.” And he promised: “We are looking at ways by which we can become more modern, but we do not want to end the tradition.”
