Red Bull boss Christian Horner believes F1 should push forward with innovative ideas following the introduction of Sprint Qualifying races at events this season.
F1 recently confirmed that Sprint Qualifying will take place at three rounds this season. Horner believes the new format could bring some benefits, though he wouldn't stop there.
"I'm happy to support the promoters and give it a go because I think if we don't try something different, how do you know if it's any better or not?," Horner told Sky Sports.
"Part of me thinks a grand prix has a classic qualifying and a race element to it, but then this could bring something extra. And I think if it's not on every single race, then it could be something quite interesting.
“I’d even go for a point for pole position, because that has a value. I think with Sprint Qualifying, we’ve got to give it a go and that’s why we’ve agreed to go with it. Maybe more can be done with it in the future. Because the points are a critical element as well, maybe put more emphasis on the points on that race and maybe then, reverse that grid.”
Each Sprint Qualifying race will award three points to the winner. As things stand, the new format will be used at the British, Italian and one yet to be named grand prix.
