Sprint race at Silverstone. 2021

https://racer.com/2021/03/11/silverstone-to-hold-f1-sprint-race-this-year-canada-still-tbc/ maybe canadian gp also. f1 isn't saturday night dirt tracking. biggest problem, at least to me, is what happens when there is a big crash in the sprint race? teams don't have a spare they can just wheel out.
