Teams want extra money for sprint qualifying

Progress on F1’s three-race ‘sprint qualifying’ trial in 2021 has hit a snag. Teams are arguing with the sport’s authorities over the financial aspect of the proposal, insisting that the new format will cost them more just as the $145m budget cap is imposed. “Sprint qualifying will cost more money and can cost significantly more money if there’s accident damage. “I think it’s worth trying, but we simply haven’t got the margin to go for it and then find out that there is an extra half million pounds or more that we have to find within that budget cap,” said Wolff.
