F1 will stage its first sprint race on Saturday at Silverstone as part of qualifying.
Qualifying will move to Friday and set the starting order for the 17-lap sprint race on Saturday afternoon, the result of which will then define the final grid for the grand prix on Sunday.
The top-3 Sprint race finishers will not get any podium ceremony like the Sunday race winner will get.
There will be a “sprint victory lap” to its schedule, taking place in a 30-minute window after the race from 5pm to 5:30pm.
The top three finishers will be rewarded with winners’ wreaths, that they will wear on their victory lap as they soak up the adulation of the crowd.
