In a bid to spice up the show for the viewers, Formula 1 is introducing a brand new format at the remaining three races this year, starting with British Grand Prix 2021. The highlight of the overhaul is the new 100 km Sprint race, which will take place on Saturday. The winner of the sprint race will be also granted the pole position. In the race, the divers will be given a free choice of tyres.
The Sprint race is getting organized by sacrificing one of the three practice sessions that used to take place before the main event. And ahead of the new exciting Sprint race, here is everything you need to know about the Sprint race.
