Steiner pushes for F1 sprint format shakeup

Gunther Steiner says he would support moves to shake up the ‘sprint race’ weekend format in Formula 1. Next year, the number of ‘sprint’ weekends will be doubted from three to six, but the Haas team boss thinks the format for those events can be improved. Steiner also says it would make every practice session fully meaningful through the sprint weekends. “We could give it a little spice so that it becomes a qualifying for the race. It has not been debated yet, but they are already thinking about what the next step should be.”. Steiner also thinks Formula 1 has hit the limit with its huge 24-race calendar scheduled for 2023. “The next step should not be more races, but more sprints,” he said.
