Vasseur gives sprint qualifying tweak thumbs-up

Frederic Vasseur has given the thumbs-up to Formula 1’s sudden qualifying format change in 2023. In Melbourne, it emerged that the ‘sprint race’ weekend format was set for an immediate tweak, with a second and separate qualifying session added. Now, for the sprint weekends, there will be just a single practice session before the first qualifying session on Friday – which will determine the order of Sunday’s grid. “The new format should be more dynamic,” Ferrari boss Frederic Vasseur is quoted by Russia’s Sport-Express. “I’m not a big fan of the regular practice format, which is sometimes pretty boring. “So trying to make the weekend more dynamic is a good decision,” said Vasseur.
