Sprint races replace F1 qualifiers in three GPs

The Formula 1 committee of the international car federation FIA took the plunge yesterday: this season, a sprint race will determine the starting grid of the actual grand prix on Sunday at three major prizes.

The top three of such a race over 100 kilometers – one third of the full race distance – also score World Cup points. The starting order of the sprint race will be determined by the usual qualifying format, which will be completed on Friday. The three races have yet to be officially announced, but Radio Paddock is sticking to the grand prix in Silverstone, Monza and Sao Paulo.
