“I have always felt that F1 should try to develop ideas to make race weekends more dynamic. Now we will experience a situation in which the qualifying race will be more important, while in other weekends it will be the opposite. We’ll see how it goes, but maybe it will be useful for the future ”.Lewis Hamilton during the press conference for the presentation of the home weekend at Silverstone he remained consistent with what he has argued several times in the past, namely the need for F1 to find innovative formats to overcome certain problems of some weekends, such as that of Monaco for example where it is impossible to overcome.
How the Silverstone Sprint Qualification works
Tomorrow, unlike what usually happens, the drivers will support qualifying after the first free practice session, because the starting grid for Sunday’s Grand Prix will be established by a Sprint qualification of 17 laps. The reigning world champion hopes to assert the home factor that has often rewarded him in the last editions of the home game: “I hope to give the public great joy, in the past I have always been strong here. This season in which we are forced to chase is bringing me even closer to the team and it is no coincidence that we have already formalized the fact that we still have a long way to go together. This championship is giving me great motivation and I want to keep fighting ”.
