F1 should tweak new sprint race idea says Ecclestone

Bernie Ecclestone is worried Formula 1 could make a grave mistake with the new ‘sprint race’ format. Friday qualifying and a Saturday sprint race will be trialled at three races this year. “DNA is important, but we have to admit that some of the races are boring. “People will only watch the main race if something else will happen compared to the sprint. But why should Sunday be any different to Saturday if the result of the sprint race is the grid for the main race?. “I think you need to give points for the sprint and then turn the grid around for the main race. So if the winner of the sprint gets 15 points, he has to go back 15 starting places on Sunday.
