Brivio: The Sprint has changed the rules of the game

The Portuguese GP saw a new era of the World Championship kick off with the first-ever Tissot Sprint taking place on Saturday afternoon. The Italian spoke to MotoGP™ Pitlane reporter Jack Appleyard, and he firmly believes that the Tissot Sprint format changes the game completely and makes Saturday a crucial day for the Championship: “It’s very interesting, of course, it changes the rule of the game!”. In the Tissot Sprint, there’s little reprieve for a poor qualifying or launch from the line. In the Sprint, the start will be very important, it will be difficult to recover, so important to qualify well, that’s why it’s a different game. Overall, the introduction of the Tissot Sprint format has elevated the excitement and competitiveness of the World Championship to a new level.
