What is F1 sprint race qualifying, and how does it work?

F1 Sprint is happening again tomorrow – with the new race format set to dazzle spectators and excite the masses across another two weekends this season. F1 Sprint will be part of the race schedule this weekend at Interlagos. Essentially, F1 Sprint is a mini race which will be run over 100km on Saturday evening, with the usual Grand Prix distance. Taking part will be the 20 drivers who qualified on Friday evening and their starting positions will be determined by their qualifying finishes. Wherever you finish in F1 Sprint will then determine where you begin the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday. Should you win F1 Sprint, you will start in pole position on Sunday, but should you finish in eighth position, you will start in eighth for the main race.
