The latest survey commissioned by Formula 1 revealed fans show little support for the newly-introduced Sprint Qualifying format.

Details:

  • Over 167 thousand fands replied to the global survey, and just 6.7% agreed that the “introduction of sprint race has improved the show.”

The deep dive:

  • “Sprint races are viewed as having marginally improved the F1 show,” the official report says.
  • “The number is very, very encouraging because you need to consider that we see for what we receive as a figure the mixed feeling of having more traditional fan, less happy for the change, while the new fans are really happy to see things are moving in a different way,” said F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.
