Sebastian Vettel criticized the idea of Formula 1 sporting director Ross Brown to introduce a reversible grid starting next year at some stages …
Sebastian Vettel: “If you need a reverse start, then you could not write a good regulation, find a way to reduce the gap in the peloton and make the race more spectacular.
I want to remind you that we had rules regarding the design of the front wing – the teams spent a lot of money on their implementation, but this did not affect the fight on the track. We expect a lot from the changes in regulations in 2022. But, solving this problem, you need to focus on the main thing, and not play at random.
The use of a reversible grid to increase the unpredictability of results is contrary to sporting and competitive principles. Although I, as a driver, do not like it when others win, I acknowledge the merits of the rivals if they did a better job and won. It would be wrong for sports to try to mix the peloton with reversible starting grids. “
