They should use Austin Maestros. Not sure there is a GT3 version though

They could do a spot of karting. Oh, how it would be a dream to see them perform in equal machinery like that (as much as I enjoy the constructor nature of F1). Although can you imagine any accusations of unequal machinery, different set-ups and questions of karts suiting individuals' driving styles or not?

Or how about BMW M1s? I guess the modern equivalent of that Procar series would be the Porsche Supercup. Without the F1 drivers though!

The Times yesterday seemed to be indicating that the plans were for a single practice on the Friday, with qualifying for the Sprint race on Friday afternoon.


Sprint race on Saturday to be approx one third normal race distance, with the results of the Sprint race to determine the grid positions for Sunday's race, and some championship points for the first 8 in the Sprint race.


Supposedly to be trialled at 3 meetings this year, if teams sign up to it.

I don't think I like the points AND positions from the sprint race. No problem with a sprint championship within the season, don't offer the sprint race at every race meeting. But I'm sure they will come up with something stupid and it will annoy more people than it should.

It could be a really good thing if they are allowed to run unlimited fuel flow and engine mapping as well and the tyres last the whole race when the driver is actually hanging it all out in a real sprint race but that won't happen. They should also make energy harvesting and use unlimited as well and see who can actually RACE 9/10 for the whole time. A sprint race should be just that, a no holds barred race.

What will happen when one of the stars totals a car and it can't be repaired in time or he finishes up injured and can't compete the next day.

Well raised reservations but I think these days teams have become quite good at turning a pile of junk into a sparkling new steed in fairly short time.

With reserve drivers being urged to attend events by their teams anyway (standing by to sub for Covid positive regulars) there will already be someone ready to jump in.

im still concerned that if they parc ferme the cars after the sprint, so the chassis and aero set up engine mapping and even tyres you run in the sprint is how you start the main race.
Will we see all the cars jamming into the pits near the end of the sprint to get new tyres and sunday set up screwed on.

18 laps of sprint, followed by pitlane traffic jam and fastest pit competition, then 2-3 lap balls to the walls sprint to the flag to scrub the tyres and get a grid spot

actually that sounds rather fun!

then theres strategy, as far as saturday vs sunday points .. it really does add a dimension. pit late on saturday race Or stay out to get saturday points and best grid position, then pitting really early in the main event for tyres and set up changes.

I wasnt in favour but now im warming to it for a handful of races, less than half.
but im dead against reverse grid, your grid position is earned by how good you and your team are, not by a coin toss - leave that stuff for the weekend amateur clubby "fun racers".

while i have been an advocate of playing around with the format, i would have a problem with a sprint race not being able to give us quali tires, low fuel, clean air, fastest lap that can be done by that car.

but as long as F1 bury that experience within Q2, rather in the middle of the hour instead of at the end of it, then qualifying as a whole, for me at least, is going to feel anti climactic which will naturally lead me to want to see alternatives.

like bathurst77, i also enjoy the strategy compromise between saturday and sunday but i also need to see a fast car go as fast as it can go.

im not sure if all of those 'asks' can be fit together?

There is no way that Grosjean or his car was going to race the next day. Perhaps they need to re-introduce T cars because I can't see a true sprint race happening any other way due to the drivers trying not to bin it at the front of the field and those at the back causing mayhem trying to climb through the field. I am all for it if they can actually have a no holds barred SPRINT race....bring it on I say and let the panels fly, let's see some true knock down, drag out sprint racing.

Maybe they're actually thinking of using Sprint Cars for the sprint races? Scrape out a dirt oval at each Grand Prix venue and "let's go racing boys"!

640 odd Kg, 900 Bhp - methanol V8s at 9,000 rpm could provide the yin to the current F1 cars' yang?

Car was no problem as spare easily built up from sub-assemblies, but I’m not sure rules allow reserve driver to start without qualifying anyway. So what’s different to someone being ruled out after qualifying before now?

I think HAAS has already resolved this issue.

If drivers are precluded from the Sunday main event then the teams will throw their toys out of the pram and have a sulk and that will be the end of sprint racing which BTW won't be a true sprint race just a short warm up thing. The teams will all eventually come to the same recipe on how to best run the "sprint" race and normal order and operations will ensue from there.
