F1 selects tracks for 2020 qualifying race trial
Font size:
Sunday 13 Oktober at 06:35 : Oct.13 (GMM) Formula 1 has decided the location of the three 'trial' qualifying races in 2020.

It is believed that Ross Brawn told the teams at Suzuka that he wants the 45 minute, reverse-grid qualifying sprint races to take place at Paul Ricard, Spa and Sochi.

There will be no mandatory pitstops and drivers are free to choose any tyre compound.

But although a wholesale qualifying format change for 2021 can be pushed through, the 2020 trial can only take place if all the teams unanimously agree.

That appears unlikely. Indeed, after a meeting with Chase Carey on 'typhoon Saturday', it emerged that only four teams - Renault, McLaren, Alfa Romeo and Williams - are supportive of Liberty's 2021 regulations revolution.

The other six want the technical rules to remain substantially the same.

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reports that Honda only wants to decide whether to stay in Formula 1 beyond next year once the 2021 rules are announced.

Reportedly, Honda's executive vice president Seiji Kuraishi favours pulling the plug.
