Red Bull Racing team leader Horner believes that F1 should at least try to start in reverse order. The event can choose non-world championship games.
F1 has considered replacing qualifying with a reverse start sprint in some races of the 2020 season, but this proposal was rejected due to Mercedes' opposition.
F1 managers said that after the dramatic race at Monza, they will revisit the idea of 2021 (reverse start). In the past few red flag races, the red flag has had a serious impact on the fastest car. The probability of passing this plan is higher in the 2021 season, because in 2021, only a "super majority" (more than 2/3) is required, but in the 2020 season, the team needs to be unanimous, but in recent weeks, the voice of opposition has increased.
Red Bull Racing team leader Horner said that F1 “should not be afraid to try something different”. He believes that in some non-world championship events, you can try to start in reverse order.
"If there is a chance, or a performance game, or an invitational event, or even a non-world championship event, a reverse start like this can be tried and it will be an interesting process to see the result," Horner Say, "If you don't try, you will never know the result. I think it is a very simple thing to say that this idea is absurd, and it will not have any effect. But sometimes in life you must try and see the result;
“如果有机会，表演比赛，邀请赛或什至非世界冠军赛，可以尝试这样的反向开始，这将是一个有趣的过程，可以看到结果，” Horner说， “如果不尝试，您将永远不会知道结果。我认为说这个想法很荒谬，不会产生任何效果，这很简单。但是有时在生活中，您必须尝试并观察结果;
"If this approach does not affect the World Championships-because I can't see how to use different rules in a World Championship game-but it may be a non-World Championship race, or An invitational game
"We have introduced a lot of new tracks this year, but in the future it is impossible to keep all of these tracks. If a certain game is selected to try a different format, we have nothing to lose."
Since 1983, F1 has not held a non-world championship race. Such a race without World Championship points is currently just an "idea" and has never been discussed between F1 and the teams.
According to the rules implemented after 2021, as long as three teams oppose, the proposal to adopt a reversed start in 2021 cannot be passed, and there are many opponents.
Mercedes seems to have loosened from the initial position of firm opposition. McLaren remains firmly opposed. Team leader Seidel said, "The team will never support reverse starting."
Seidel is also opposed to trying new grid formats in non-world championship events, he believes this is "not necessary".
"Looking at the competition in the midstream group, it's already great. I don't think we need to fundamentally change the sport. We need to wait for the 2022 rules, which will significantly narrow the gap between the teams," Seidel said.
