Artificial manipulation never works in the long term. The answer is technical regulation to create car parity and challenging track conditions to create driver errors. Add in 2 or more mandatory stops and a significant difference between tire compounds creating alternative strategies and you will have ample competitive and enjoyable racing.

Just stop the nonsense. Friday practice Saturday qualifying and Sunday race. Leave it alone. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel.

Broken parts + wear on engines + not enough tire allocation = too much cost. Sorry not worth the action. Maybe if they did it in go-karts financed solely by the drivers. Hahaha now that’s worth watching.

If you want competitive racing, then give the drivers cash payouts for the first three finishers of the sprint race - a million bucks for the winner, $500k for 2nd place, and $250k for the third place finisher.

As a North American ( Canadian ) it seems to me F1 is visibly trying hard to have a bigger presence ( here ) as the sport isn't that popular , aside to streaming sites its next to impossible to catch a race vs Nascar being on all the big networks . So as the die hard fans reading this and are ready to bring out the noose but I feel this move is to compete with Nascar . I started watching 2 years ago and I 100% don't watch time trials , I bring up SElosk and watch the quick 5 minute video and see the race order because as a new fan its not like picking up a sport like soccer . F1 is very detailed and technical and you're not learning it in the duration of a race so that being said F1 would also have these stats and ticket sales as myself personally would only get a ticket to Sunday race . Nascar however makes it a race Weekend IE Clash Race one day , quali / practice another , another race , more practice / quali , Big race and thats what North Americans want to see is racing and I think F1 recognizes that . Personally I would like to see all the main drivers practice / quali then have a race ( Hamilton / Verstappen etc.) , then their team mates do the same the next day (Bottas / Checo etc.) then on race day the top 8 from both races line up in winning order and have a show down of 16 I think it would be thrilling but I understand it would never happen , however as a novice fan I think this move is to try to appeal more to a North American market , maybe I am wrong but I was kinda excited for 2 days of racing lol however reading the comments I appear to be the only one and that's okay . PS I don't want to argue with anyone nor make anyone mad I was trying to shed light on a different perspective and I also don't think the world revolves around North America .

What if they award points to the number of laps led? Like 1 point to ever lap. That would add a bit more strategy. Force the car to stay out longer or come in to swap tires and lose the lead for a bit? Course that could run the risk of giant points gap by the front runner.

Since there are such big rule changes for 2022 I think this would be a waste as the new changes will hopefully bring about more competitive racing without diluting the Sunday race. Lets revisit after we see how 2022 looks.

Hi guys, Firstly just want to say I Love the channel and great work to all involved Thank you. Regarding the sprint race idea, I think it might be a good idea and I’m in favour with at least trying it out to see if it either enhances or ruins the overall experience for the sport, teams or fans or possibly all. My suggestion would be to 1. race weekend, Friday practice, Saturday qualifying sprint race and Sunday main event 2. Run the cars for the sprint race in reverse finishing order Of the previous Grand Prix 3. Total laps to be 1/3 of the proper race distance 4. Points should be awarded to the top 10 cars and drivers with 10 being the maximum and 1 point being the least 5. If one or more cars incur a DNF in the previous GP then the order will be decided based on the total number of constructors points up to that date and if there are more than one team with equal constructors points the position will be decided by the combined total of their drivers points up to that date 6. The sprint race will replace qualifying and teams can utilise full qually max attack mode in the sprint race Anyway that’s just my thoughts on the idea , don’t know if it’s good or bad, You guys are the experts but what do you think ? Kind regards, Rob.

The sprint races should be a driver focused championship. Drivers should drive a standard car, perhaps one borrowed from F2. This could be run in half the venues to save on transport costs.

They should do one Qualifying, a reverse grid sprint race with fewer points and a regular race. Of course this will never happen, partially because Mercedes is guaranteed to veto this.
Alex Dickinson

Instead of sprint race, it should be 3 qualifying rounds as normal but just one lap to do it in each round
Alex Dickinson

One car at a time. Start with Williams for example and make your way down the garage from there. Whatever that time is will stay till all cars have gone round and then knock them out from there until the final top 10 shootout but still one lap on the final qualifying

Ben Hayes

It may just be me not liking change but I think isn’t a good idea. Trying to force a sport to be more competitive defeats the point of a sport. You don’t see sports like football, rugby etc changing the rules to try and make it more competitive at the top of the table. All this does is damage the sporting integrity of F1 and yes, it may lead to a few more shock podiums, but do they carry the same weight when we know the only reason they happened is because of a rule change.

If this is going to be the new qualifying, it sounds like revamping the old qualifying. Was before my time following but they didn't always run the three different sessions. Didn't they have one time trial where you had to get your best time in?

Those points awarded are completely bonkers. You need to lower them by a lot. Maybe award one point to top 7 or 8 finishers outside of podium and then do 2 3 and 4 for 3rd 2nd and 1st place.
James Harrison
James Harrison 14 dagar sedan
Its not that bad an idea, but I would prefer points to qualify, and then a reverse grid. I haven't worked out the point system, and how it should be weighted, you might be able to keep the current system. I think it would be ok to to keep the current system as often top cars can recover from the back of the field, and the engines etc have to last a few races so they can't easily fiddle about with short race specials. As the top cars will be to the back, and slow cars to front the field spread will e reduced and your main competitors should be close by.. but watch out you don't knock a wing off
Shifty Malone

Yeah if you win on Saturday, you're not a Grand Prix winner. It cheapens the sport. A qualifying race is a better idea than actually giving points! If you're not fascinated by practise sessions, then you're not a real fan of F1. Why should we change our sport to suit you?

I'd only be for this if the actual GP used a reverse-grid start based on the results of the sprint race. Fast teams couldn't afford to miss sprint race points just to get a better start in the GP, so we'd see the better teams having to make their way through the field in the GP.

I live in Montreal and go to the F1 every year. I don’t like the sound of this, hopefully it doesn’t happen. If you want to make it more competitive I suggest you bring back multiple tire suppliers and scrap any tire rules. Like starting the race on tires from Q2. And bring back gasoline to pit stops. Simple and will work 100% or my name isn’t JOE SMOE!!

Am I the only one who thinks the concept of a "sprint RACE" as a QUALIF session is a complete contradiction ? Also, in 2003 with the one lap concept, they put a qualif session for Friday with the same goal : to decide the order of the next qualif session and bring more action for the first day of a week-end race. In 2004, Friday was once again reduced to practice sessions only...

The view point that it's good for tv and the tv audience is incomplete. More 'must see' racing will have a massive negative impact on which channels can broadcast the season, potentially limiting it to 'bespoke'/sports channels (usually paid for services rather than the free to view channels) as the others will struggle to give time to F1 on Fridays and full race coverage on Saturdays. It also negatively impacts those who work: qualifying will be on a week day and thus will be mostly unwatched/ruined by news/social media 'spoilers' before they can get home. Some people already have to 'go dark' (tv, radio, phones) for hours to avoid this as life doesn't always match F1. Also adding more 'stuff' to watch isn't necessarily a good thing or something that people can 'afford' (monetarily, time or socially/environmentally) to do. All this "could" create different classes of fan (in both the 'dedicated' and 'amateur' groups); those who can afford to watch the extra day and those who can't. So many challenges with this but I think Fridays should remain for the die-hard fans with all the competition on Saturdays (morning quali, afternoon =

Go back to 2005 qualy. Each driver, one lap, in reverse order of the championship standings. I even liked the cummulated values from Friday and Saturday. Has more variables outside of teams control (weather over 2 days has more chances of being fluctuant than over one day). Bring back refuelling and you solve the F1 problem

Too many negatives. Keep qualifying, no sprint race. This move is ALL about money and not racing. If they want to try it, then run it as a shadow for comparison, take the grid from qualifying, and monitor the difference with a sprint race with no points, again you could shadow points to see what the effect would have been. Three races is not enough to test anything, shadow for a whole season.

Reverse grids and success ballast are the way to go, BTCC has it sorted for excitement and use this formula. Use mystery reverse grids, 4 or 5 events are picked but teams font know once qualifying is over reverse grid is announced, the quick guys will work through the field. Then add success ballast to stop one team running away with it, once again it works and makes for exciting racing as it's so close.

The order they finish the sprint race will determine how many items of woolly clothing is worn in the main race. With each position wearing one more garment. If you get poll then you must wear twenty pieces. These could include, gloves, scarves, cardigans, socks (count as two garments) and various items of underwear. Tweed is allowed.
