Domenicali proposes idea to award more points to drivers who dominate race weekend

Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has outlined an idea that drivers who complete a 'Grand Chelem' could earn themselves more championship points

Stefano Domenicali has spoken about more ideas in which Formula 1 is looking at tweaking its format, and outlined one idea in which a dominating driver might be able to earn more points.

A 'Grand Chelem' or 'Grand Slam' is a pretty rare occurrence in Formula 1, and consists of a driver getting pole position and scoring fastest lap and the race win by leading every single lap. Just how rare it happens is illustrated by Lewis Hamilton, who is second on the all-time list, with six such weekends out of his 98 victories.

Domenicali explained that more ideas are being looked at as Formula 1 introduces 'Sprint Qualifying' races at three events this year, with one idea being to reward drivers who can achieve this level of domination.

"What is also on the mind is to create a grandslam bonus so to speak," Domenicali told La Gazzetta dello Sport, "where a driver who wins qualifying, sprint race and the race gets extra points or something.

"We have to see what could be linked to that, but we are thinking about rewarding that grandslam at some GPs where we would use Sprint Qualifying in the future. We could use this set-up for historic GPs in the coming years to make them even more special."

With F1 specifically targeting younger audiences with their Sprint Qualifying idea, Domenicali explained that the aim of these new ideas is to hone the sport's format to increase excitement.

"We are growing fast, we can see that in the TV and social media figures and of course we are very happy with that," he outlined.

"The young generation is also showing more and more interest in the sport. Of course we still have a lot of work to do, but we are currently in a very good time with Formula 1 and the sport is growing fast. That is why we are constantly thinking about how we can make it even better. We want to show the fans even more. We are also going to have a season where we are going to keep excitement in the season until the end of the year, which will make the fans even more interested."
