This race weekend, Formula 1 experiments tduring qualifying for the Italian GP with custom qualification rules. In addition, the drivers will have to use certain tire compounds.
After earlier experiments with qualifying in Hungary, qualifying for the GP of Italy will also be different. As in Hungary, drivers will not have a free choice of tires in Q1, Q2 and Q3. On the Monza circuit, drivers will be required to use the hard tires during Q1, the medium tires in Q2 and the soft tires in Q3. In case of rain, of course, free choice of tires applies, but no rain is predicted.
With these rules, Formula 1 not only wants to increase the spectacle, but above all also want to make the sport more sustainable. After all, the allocated tires will certainly be used, while now, for example, the hard tire compound is barely used. By reducing the number of sets of tires, Formula 1 wants to become more sustainable as a sport.
Rules experiment qualification GP of Italy:
– Q1: Compulsory use of hard tire compound
– Q2: Mandatory use of medium tire compound
– Q3: Compulsory use of soft tire compound
