Ross Brawn is ‘optimistic’ F1 teams will agree to doubling the number of Sprint races to SIX for the 2023 season… with a crucial vote on the shortened race format to take place at next week’s Commission

Formula One teams will vote on doubling the number of Sprint races for 2023 next week, with managing director Ross Brawn ‘optimistic’ on securing six for next season. ‘On Tuesday we want to discuss increasing it to six, so we’d like to have six races next year,’ said Brawn. ‘I think [the teams] can see the success and I think we didn’t know quite where we were last year with the old cars, but I think they can see the way this is feeding into the new cars, and the philosophy of the new cars. He added: ‘We’re very pleased with the sprint race, great entertainment, lots of racing going on, plenty of overtaking. Last year’s sprint races offered points for the top three finishers only but that has now been extended to the first eight.
