Recently, Formula 1 is considering making some changes related to departure routes. The reformulation would be based on those practiced by MotoGP and will be put into practice at the Azerbaijan GP, between the 28th and 30th of this month, with two qualifying and two races, the sprint and the main one.

In an interview with the press, Lewis Hamilton commented that the change will be positive for everyone: “I think the changes with sprint racing can be positive in some places. I’m open to changes, to make them more inclusive and engaging for fans. I really like the Friday of a sprint weekend and would love to have more rankings because it’s always so much fun. I just think it should be different”.

“Maybe we can apply small changes to different races that are specific to those places. If there’s a race where you can’t overtake, like Monaco, what else can you do to make it more exciting?
George Russel, also a Mercedes driver, also evaluated the change: “For the fans in the stands, just seeing the cars running on the track in practice is not as exciting as having a qualifying session or a sprint race. I think it’s exciting for us, for the teams and for the fans”.
