The new for 2023 Sprint format returns for more action, more jeopardy, and more excitement on what we're terming: Sprint Saturday.
What's it all about though? We caught up with Sporting Director Ron Meadows, and Trackside Engineering Director Andrew Shovlin, to get the low down.
"The most notable change is the removal of Free Practice Two from the weekend timetable. That has been replaced with a session called the Sprint Shootout," Ron states. "This will set the grid for the F1 Sprint later that day and ensures that Saturday is completely dedicated to this format. Qualifying on Friday will therefore determine the starting order for the Grand Prix on Sunday."
