Silverstone to host half-hour sprint race in 2021

The ‘super qualifying’ sprint races to be trialled in Formula 1 this year will only last half an hour, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has revealed. Just as new concerns emerge over the viability of the race in Montreal this season, it now emerges that Silverstone will join Monza and Interlagos as hosts of the three-weekend trial. “The sprint race can be an electrifying added extra dimension.”. Domenicali has travelled to Bahrain for talks with the teams aimed at finalising the details of the format. “But points will be awarded – how many is yet to be decided – towards the world championship and determine the grid for the race itself.”.
