FIA evaluating the impact of doubling number of F1® sprint races

28/04/22

All F1® teams are in favour of having six sprint events.

The FIA is continuing to evaluate plans to double the number of Formula 1® sprint events to six next year.

Silverstone staged the inaugural sprint race last year and the first of three on the 2022 calendar was staged at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix last weekend.

All 10 F1® teams are in favour of having six sprint events on the 2023 schedule.

F1®'s governing body is still considering whether to approve such an increase.

An FIA statement said: "With the first of three sprint events of the 2022 season popular with fans and stakeholders last weekend at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, Formula One and the teams were supportive of an extension to six sprint events for the 2023 season, running with the same format as in 2022.

"While supporting the principle of an increased number of sprint events, the FIA is still evaluating the impact of this proposal on its trackside operations and personnel, and will provide its feedback to the commission."

Max Verstappen won the sprint at Imola to take pole position and duly converted that into a race victory on Sunday.

FIA has blocked the proposal for now as they evaluate the impact of this proposal on its trackside operations and personnel.
