After it was published calendar for 2021 according to which it has been confirmed that Formula 2 will have three races per weekend, the format of such a weekend has now been announced.

Friday will remain unchanged - there will be one free 45-minute training session and a half-hour qualifier.

Saturday will look different. There will be two sprint races, ie races of 120 km or 45 minutes, whichever comes first. The main race from now on will be run on Sunday morning, before Formula 1. It will still be 170 km long or an hour long.

Scoring systems will also not change - the main race carries points up to tenth place (25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1), and sprint races will carry points to the fastest eight (15, 12, 10). , 8, 6, 4, 2, 1). Pole position carries four points, and the fastest lap in each race two points, so the maximum number of points per weekend will be 65.

The biggest change will be determining the starting orders. The main race will still be determined by the qualifying standings, but the sprint racing system is changing.

So far the sprint race has been run on Sundays and the top eight have started in reverse order from the one in the main race. Now in the first sprint race the order of the top ten from the qualifiers will be reversed, and in the second the same number of riders will be reversed given the results of the first sprint race.

Each driver will have six instead of the previous five sets of dry tires - four sets of hard, two sets of soft and three sets of rain tires.

“It’s fantastic that we can move the main race to Sunday, Formula 1 race day. It will improve the show for the fans and make it more special,” said Bruno Michel, CEO of Formula 2.

“Two inverted grids on Saturday will further spice up the championship. We’ve already seen how much fun such races are. It should also allow drivers to show off their skills in front of the F1 paddock and the rest of the world. ”

The new season will kick off in late March in Bahrain, at a location that will conclude the 2020 season this weekend.

    All this is fine, but I don't like the choice of races, ie the calendar. Spielberg, Spa, ..?
    Of course, I understand that they are trying to reduce costs, but since these are young drivers in development, isn't it more logical to take them through as many tracks as possible - more experience plus more variety (trail A suits one driver, trail B does not)

    So you will be 10th in the qualifiers, you start first in the first sprint race, let's say you win, you start 10th in the second sprint race and then again 10th in the main race.
    Seems fair to me.
    And quite interesting.

    • Great. Much better than if you are the fastest to start first because it makes no sense.

        It can be like this, you will be the first in the qualifiers, you start 10th in the first sprint race, you finish 10th, in the second sprint race you start first and you win. On Sunday you start first in the main race (because you were the best in the qualifiers) and you win.
        For what from the previous comment you win 15 + 0 + 1 = 16 points, for what I have just written you win 4 (for pp) + 0 + 15 + 25 = 44 points. We will not count the fastest laps.
        Yes, it’s certainly great and like I said, pretty fair, but also very interesting. ;)
        Next time, read a little better and find out what is written in the article and / or someone's comment ……
