Marko, Ricciardo approve of 2021 ‘sprint race’ trial

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali’s Saturday sprint race idea is gaining approval up and down the Formula 1 pit-lane. “I like this idea more than reverse grids,” McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo said on Monday. I like the idea of more races and less practice,” he added. “I don’t want winning in Formula 1 to become easier so that the value of a win is diminished,” said the new McLaren driver. Red Bull official Dr Helmut Marko also likes the idea of F1 sprint racing. “I think it’s a good decision – we’ve had too many boring races,” said the Austrian. Finally, McLaren team boss Andreas Seidl said on Monday: “We don’t want to artificially change the order of the drivers, as would be the case with reverse grids.
