Silverstone set to stage new F1 sprint race on July 17 to decide starting grid at British GP and could welcome 100k fans

SILVERSTONE is set to stage a new Formula One sprint race to decide the British Grand Prix starting grid – potentially in front of 100,000 fans. The sprint will then determine where cars line up on the track for Sunday’s showpiece Grand Prix. For sure we do not want to take away the prestige of the Grand Prix itself. We will have qualifying on Friday and then ‘sprint qualifying’ on Saturday. “But points will be awarded — how many is yet to be decided — towards the world championship and determine the grid for the race itself. What I can say is that Silverstone will hold a sprint race.”.
