There might be no podium celebrations after the three qualifying dash races in 2021
Although the new format might be examined at three Grands Prix this 12 months, the addition of a shorter race may damage Sunday’s most important occasion.
“A 300 kilometer Grand Prix, the biggest challenge of the whole weekend, has been around for so many years”, stated Sebastian Vettel. “If something like this is introduced, it looks like sticking plaster to me, not a cure.”
While the media hold speaking about “Sprint races”, FIA President Jean Todt has apparently revealed the identify of the new session on Saturday.
“There is the intention to introduce a super-qualification for two or three Grands Prix”, did he declare. “We’re happy to do something like this to create more excitement, but we don’t want to hurt the sport”.
Although the groups have given their tentative approval to the mission, discussions are persevering with on the precise particulars. “We are working on the details and will present our plans before Bahrain”, confirmed Domenicali.
“We have to make sure there is a striking difference between the first race and the world championship race”, he added. “The ceremony following the Grand Prix is the highlight of the event, so there can be nothing like that for Saturday”.
