Sprint races – Rossi in the Mugello rain

So, Sprint races next year – but not for the first time in the 74-year history of Grand Prix racing. Perhaps they were unplanned but Sprint races in various forms are not new. It was the shortest ever race in the Premier class, six laps of the magnificent Italian circuit just 31.470 kms. If they stopped before the cut off how many laps would the new race be and would the times from both races be added together. A six lap Sprint race was scheduled with maximum World Championship points being awarded. No race times being added together, just six laps of pure mayhem. No Flag to Flag or Sprint race to help them out in those days.
