Formula 3 Test Driver
- Dec 22, 2016
That sprint was a **** show. Nothing much else to say about it.
That would be an extreme measure but I know the feels. The racing during the feature was all round excellent, but I think we do need some kind of a format change after tonight. After Zandvoort I was against a rolling start but if it went to a vote I'd change my opinion.I'll say we stop with the sprint race right here and right now.
Based on experience, I very much doubt it would have helped much.Speaking of a rolling start, I would seriously suggest trialing it full scale in a championship round. At the pre-season test we had barely 20 people so it didn't prove anything. Spa would be a good candidate, although given that it's fairly wide I would expect less incidents anyway, so perhaps 2 rounds in succession to make sure we have reliable results so we can decide whether or not to make it the permanent format.
No hard feelings. I was surprised when you rejoined the track the way you did but amazingly I took very little damage, mostly cosmetic. It's hard to judge fully as I didn't see the replay and it wasn't broadcast as far as I could tell.
