  • How does engine allocation work?

    rotrohanrotrohan10 napja
  • So if you crash in sprint race you have to build up a car in 1 day...F1 will get much more expensive...

Use Logic & Common Sense! F1 already lost so many Fans who crossed over to MotoGP Races which are Easier to Understand & Less BS Racial Politics! ... 🕯🌷🌿

  • I thought the drivers would be running 100kms and whoever wins will take pole followed by others to come in 2nd 3rd and all

  • So, two races to increase ad revenue and give Mercedes even more points. Got it.

    InvoxInvox12 napja
  • i dont think this will add anything at all to the weekend, Mercedes - probably Hamilton will win these races, then a toss up between Bottas and Max as to who is second, there is no point in this format. it would have been better to keep Friday as it is and run the sprint race in reverse championship order maybe with some sort of shootout system and time limited with greater reward.

    Chris AChris A12 napja
  • Absolutely TERRIBLE plan, just a gimmick laden distraction. So you can get punted out at corner 1 of a sprint race by your competitors team mate and start the main race at the back. Anyone who thinks this system won't get abused is dreaming.

  • Can you guys do a video explaining track limits?

  • They're trying to fix the only thing that's not broken in the sport. Qualifying is not broken. Ironically it point to EVERYTHING that's wrong in F1, the insistence on changing the rules every 1.5 years, because...?

  • This format is dumb just imagine if big crashed happened during the day of sprint race.

    HelloHello13 napja
  • how many laps is a sprint qualifying race? ( 100 kilometer )

    mark nvtmark nvt13 napja
  • i love this idea because the fridays for me was always a bit boring and i can't understand why fans would buy tickets for the friday practice. You see a lot of sandbagging, most of the time they don't practice ( with the former 90 minutes sessions ) and you don't see any real results. As a fan you want too see where the teams stands the whole weekend, so no more games played, its time for the real deal

    mark nvtmark nvt13 napja
  • Just no

    angus TDHangus TDH13 napja
  • Sounds kinda like a gimmick Nascar would come up with, but hopefully it won't cost teams too much additional money.

  • Feels so strange after a sprint race friday to be practice on saturday.... so odd.

  • What a load of horseshit. Isn't 1 race enough?

    Michiel de RuyterMichiel de Ruyter13 napja
  • What’s the purpose of a sprint race if 95% of the tracks don’t really allow overtaking? Isn’t that the actual problem, that you need things like DRS because the tracks don’t allow overtaking?

    Marcin MalinowskiMarcin Malinowski14 napja
  • I,d give an extrapoint to the pilot that gains more positions in race.

    Ramón OteroRamón Otero14 napja
  • Questions: What tires will the cars use on Sunday? Who is regarded as poleman? As far as I know, the man starting the race from the 1st position, is regarded the poleman. But what happens now? Do the Sprint Qual. win count as race wins?

    Balaji RajagopalanBalaji Rajagopalan14 napja
  • This could get very interesting and very messy as they are basically bonus points for Red Bull and Mercedes unless they get punted off by "accident" and I doubt either team will risk race points for sprint points should things get aggressive with a mid pack team car.

  • Imagine crashing on Friday for qualification then crashing on Saturday for the BS spring... now you’re over budget cap or penalized for Sunday race..... why the teams agreed to this? we’ll see, is only 3 times this year

  • People work on a Friday. How can we watch qualy when we are working? Saturday morning qualy instead of FP3 is a better option IMO

    BIGredFREAKBIGredFREAK14 napja
  • So you have fp1, a mini race, fp2, qualifying 1-3, longer mini race, then grand prix? The mini race can effect the start position of the grand prix? Qualifying is technically mute then? I'm confused.

  • ill bring the popcorn when a championship win is on a saturday 8) and all the fans that came out too see the sunday race i robed that experience

    SmishSmishSmishSmish14 napja
  • They should test the reverse grid format on the sprint-quali-race. Either without it affecting the qualifying order for Sunday's race or have some type of algorithm based on the finish of said sprint-quali-race... IJS

    BigMic69BigMic6914 napja
  • I don’t need them ruining cars for a fake race two or 3 lap quali like Indy would be cool and most fair but knockout is a lot of fun to watch having sprint races on top of regular qualifying to determine the order of the race to determine the order of the race wrong direction imo

  • The only reason F1 is doing this is that TV companies are being forced to pay for a 3 day race week instead of 2 days because if they don't they will lose out on the friday quali.

  • boring! no overtakes on sunday, as all is sorted on Saturday already. Better let them start in reverse championship order on saturday

  • So the reason for this is a greater spectacle for the fans at the track?? Tell you what F1, there ARE none at the track!?

    WillBillWillBill14 napja
  • it's pointless in terms of competition or show, it's just based on pressure by TV broadcaster in order to fill their timetable and have people watching also on friday

    siemensohmsiemensohm14 napja
  • Needs one shot qualifying, current qualifying. Sprint race and a 20 lap shoot out start in reverse grid based on championship standings: and after every lap the last place driver gets eliminated. So the fastest cars will have to really fight for pole and the slowest cars might get a surprise midfield start

  • “Practice 2 has been replaced with a three part Qualifying session normally seen on a Saturday afternoon” Is this even accurate? I’m watching FP2 and there are no Q3,2,1 sessions and not one mention of this setting the grid for Saturday.

  • It’s worth a try. I remember the 2 session, 1 lap qualy shootout in 2005. It didn’t last long. This may have legs but should maybe be limited to half of the GPs, if it’s made permanent.

    MrQmieMrQmie15 napja
  • What happens in sprint qualifying when an aggressive also-ran takes out a top 10 car, or two leaders collide and their cars are wrecked? Do they retain the position they had at the accident, or go to the back of the pack? The first time that happens to a Mercedes, that'll be all she wrote for this little experiment.
