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.
