Thumbs up F1 considers 2021 Saturday sprint races, reverse grids ruled out



Asked by Motorsport.com about his views on the topic during an interview with selected media on Thursday, Domenicali said: “Reverse grid is over. That’s something I can tell you.

“It’s important to think maybe of new ideas to be more attractive or interesting, but we don’t have to lose the traditional approach of racing.

“I think that what we learned when we were changing the qualifying every two days was something that has burned our fingers. So we need to avoid that, and therefore now I think that the format is quite stable.”

im f glad this reverse saga is over.. adding a sprint race may hurt the "Grand Prix" spirit but if they can manage to implement a format that doesnt hurt GP, it can be nice..

Are people still greatly opposed to a weight ballast type "penalty" system for the top teams?

if you're going down that road you might as well make it a spec series.

Hopefully McLaren have made a step forward with the car as well...the more cars competing for wins the better.
Racing Point made quite the improvement last year after switching to a long wheel base design...I could see them in the mix if they still had Perez in the car...not convinced swapping him for Vettel was a good move but maybe Seb can get back his mojo.

All of this. If we can't hang out with Merc at the USGP, we will do so with McLaren. I still love the team and their performance ethos. I use both Merc and McLaren in presentations to clients at times. I use Ferrari too but just not in a positive manner...
