F1 considers sprint format tweak for 2023

Formula 1’s ‘sprint race’ weekend format could be shaken up for 2023. “Honestly, I’m just not a big fan of it because I feel like we don’t really race,” said the Red Bull driver. “There are only a few points that you get but you also know that you can’t really risk much because the main race is where you really get the points.”. He said the lack of pitstops and the leading drivers’ caution then leads to less exciting races. “I do like the one practice and then straight into qualifying,” said Verstappen. “What I’d like is having qualifying for the sprint on Friday and qualifying for the main race on Saturday morning, as the free practice currently isn’t very meaningful for anyone,” said Haas boss Gunther Steiner.
