Sprint races at every GP or not at all says Boullier

French GP boss Eric Boullier thinks sprint qualifying should take place at every race weekend in future if the 2021 trial proves successful. “I appreciate the process of testing rather than jumping into the unknown,” Boullier, referring to the three-race trial of the format this year, told France’s Auto Hebdo. Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport claims that at the end of long negotiations, Domenicali has now agreed that teams will be compensated for the extra costs of each sprint qualifying to the tune of $100,000. “Now the teams will always use this argument if something costs extra money,” one bemused team boss is quoted as saying.
