Hamilton likes the idea of shortening the weekend programOctober 13, 2019
According to Lewis Hamilton, the leadership of Formula 1 should pay attention to the experience of Suzuki, where this year, due to weather conditions, the weekend program was shortened to be used in the future.
Two trainings took place on Friday, but the third session of free arrivals, which usually takes place on Saturday morning, was canceled, and the qualification was postponed until Sunday morning and will begin four hours before the start of the race.
The five-time world champion liked this schedule.
“I have nothing against. I would be glad if they do this every year, – quotes the words of the racer Mercedes edition of RaceFans. – I definitely support the idea of reducing the weekend program, it would be nice. I think if the format changes a bit, it will be great.
This will require a different attitude, the rhythm of the day will be different. Usually after qualification you calm down, relax and get ready for the next day. And now everything will go on Sunday, this implies a different kind of difficulty, and I like it.
I hope that in Formula 1 they will continue to develop the idea of different formats, including that they will differ from stage to stage, so that there is no identical weekend program for all 22 or 23 Grand Prix of the season, if the weather is the same as here, or if on some route the races are not very spectacular.
For example, in Monaco it’s not so interesting to watch a race, because it resembles a procession. But if in such cases a different weekend format is used, who knows, perhaps this will have an effect. ”
