Formula One technical boss Ross Brawn has revealed that two season-leading sprinters 2020 voted against F1 team.
Formula 1 should premiere in the offseason 2020 a new layout of qualifications that would be implemented as a qualifying race.
Ross Brawn is set to present to Suzuki F1 teams the layout of an extra race that should last (*************************) minutes. The racers should start in reverse order according to the World Cup scoring, they could use a tire mix of their choice at the race, and a stop in the boxes would be optional.
Additional sprint races would, according to the proposal, be run in the French, Belgian and Russian GPs, and their implementation would have to be unanimously approved by all F1 teams, which did not happen.
Formula 1 executives have failed to agree with the teams, which means there will be no sprint races in the season 2020 and the qualifications will remain in their current format.
Brawn was disappointed with the rejection of the new format.
We had the principled support of all the teams, and then the two teams voted against in the last meeting. We asked for the opportunity to try out the layout in three races next season. If it didn't work out, we would of course continue with the old format.
