The top three finishers in Formula 1’s new Sprint session will receive wreaths, and a celebratory parade lap, at Silverstone on Saturday.
Formula 1 has revised its weekend format for the British Grand Prix, with qualifying moved to Friday, and Sprint taking place on Saturday afternoon.
The outcome of the 17-lap Sprint will determine the grid for Sunday’s main grand prix.
The format is set to be replicated in Italy and again once more in 2021, potentially in the United States, after which its success will be evaluated.
The top three finishers in Sprint will receive 3, 2 and 1 point respectively and Formula 1 has now revealed further information regarding the post-race set-up.
There will not be a podium ceremony but they will carry out a victory parade lap, during which they will be presented with unique celebratory wreaths.
“F1 Sprint is a brand-new and exciting format, so we felt it was important to come up with a post-race moment that was equally special,” said Alex Molina, Formula 1’s Director of Event Spectacle explained to its official website.
“The moment recognises the seven decades of history in the sport and combines it with a modern twist – very similar to the Sprint itself.”
Sprint is due to take place on Saturday at 16:30 local time.
