Ecclestone slams F1 sprint qualifying format

Bernie Ecclestone says Formula 1’s new sprint qualifying format is “complete nonsense”. Ecclestone, 90, went on to say the “important thing” is that the new format will not involve reverse grids, as it would have “violated the DNA of Formula 1”. The Briton now thinks the format will only deepen the advantage of the fastest cars, especially as the top three ‘sprint race’ finishers will be awarded extra points. “If the winner of the sprint race also gets points and is first on the grid, it won’t really reflect who really is the best driver at the end of the season,” said Ecclestone.
