The Sprint is here to stay! Formula One reach an agreement to DOUBLE the number of shortened races next season to six after successes at Silverstone and Monza

Formula One executive Ross Brawn said an agreement is in place to double the number of sprint races to six next season. ‘We have in principle agreed with the teams that we will look towards six sprint events next year,’ said Brawn, with a record-breaking 23-round calendar scheduled for 2022. ‘So we are being conservative for 2022 but positive about the concept and we are very pleased that Formula One has been brave enough to take on trying an alternative concept at three races to see how it will work. ‘We want the points rewarded to be significant enough so it is worth racing for, and they go lower down so drivers in lower positions still want to fight for it.
