EXCLUSIVE: F1 bosses pressing ahead with plans to revolutionise Grand Prix weekends despite widespread opposition from the likes of Max Verstappen who threatened to QUIT in the event of planned changes

Formula One bosses are pressing ahead with plans to revolutionise the format of Grand Prix weekends, despite accusations that they are putting entertainment before sport. It can be reported that the proposals, still under discussion, involve staging one practice session on Friday, followed by qualifying for the Grand Prix. Saturday would be ‘sprint day’ with qualifying, comprising shorter sessions than at present, held prior to the sprint, a one-third Grand Prix that would be held in the afternoon. The outcome of the sprint would not determine the starting order for the grand prix itself, which remains as it is, unchanged, on Sunday. The revamped format will only apply where sprint races are already scheduled to be staged.
