Personally and in my opinion, a Saturday reverse order points race is a bad idea. Perhaps try the concept full season 2020 in F2 and see how it shakes out before bringing it, even partially, to the big show?
The present form of qualifying is satisfactory to me. It offers competition without the risk of race damage or injury not recoverable in time for a Sunday event.
[Partial] points for a Saturday sprint race is bad idea, part two. It will only serve to confuse what is now a straight forward, easy to understand points system. It is hard enough to build and maintain a fan base with a one-day race. Now possibly a two-dayer? Cannot see that being a winner for F1. Keep the fastest lap single point, though. I was not in favor of that at the start of the season, but now see it adds interest to an event.
No mention of how the proposed Saturday sprint race will effect free practice. I can imagine the drivers may want an to move back FP1 and FP2 to Thursday? With FP3 on Friday, or perhaps preceding the Saturday sprint? Or some combination of the three FP's. Or change FP's too? Some considerations there as well. A three- day event is already tough enough to do on back-to-back events. Adding, perhaps, a fourth day will make it even tougher on teams.
Getting bad vibes from this. F1 needs to get it right. Cheers and Regards.
