Formula One fans have a lot to look forward to

The 2022 car will not be the only novelty that awaits everyone. As it turns out, the coming weekend’s British Grand Prix will also host the first ever Formula One sprint race. The sprint race is a shortened race lasting just a 100 kms, where the final results declared the grid for Sunday’s race.

Of course, there is still a traditional qualifying session to decide the sprint race grid. However, that takes place on a Friday, after a single practice session. On Saturday, there is another practice session before the sprint race, with the main race on Sunday. Naturally, Red Bull and Mercedes will be the favorites, as the former is in a good run of form.

Meanwhile, the latter has generally performed well at the Silverstone Circuit. However, one must not discount any other team, as the likes of McLaren and Ferrari have been quite resurgent. Although they are not on Red Bull or Mercedes’ level just yet, they are dark horses.
