Ross Brawn confirms weekend structure for future seasons

Ross Brawn has confirmed that Formula 1 will continue with the three day race weekend instead of changing the format for future seasons. Many believe that the weekend should be made shorter due to the fact that the season has been extended. 

“The format is an aspect of the sport we have focused on in some detail as we work towards the rules that will govern Formula 1 over the coming years and we have taken into account the voices of all of the key players – the promoters, the teams and last but not least the fans,” Brawn was quoted by Motorsportweek.com.

“I’ll be honest and say that there has been strong consensus, especially among the organisers, for maintaining the three-day format of track activity, although with a different timetable.

“It's true that a day like Sunday in Suzuka offers a great show in just a few hours but it would confine the feeder series races to the previous days.

“After careful analysis we have concluded that the best solution is to keep the event over three days, revising the Friday format but leaving the rest untouched, with qualifying on Saturday and the race on Sunday."

It looks like the weekend structure is set to stay the same for the future. This will allow the junior formulas to race but with the extended season, teams and drivers are spending a lot of time away from home.
