Leading German automobile magazine Auto motor und sport provides more details for the planned Formula One races in the 2020 season :
3 tracks: Spa, Sochi, Paul Ricard
Starting grid: Reverse WDC standing
Start: 15:00 (Local time), race lasts ~ 45 minutes, for the TV the cars will be 10 minutes on the grid before it starts
All possible penalties will be applied for the main race so not the quali race!
If there is a collision during the quali race, the car that was in front at the time of the collision will be rated higher.
The result of the quali race is the starting grid on Sunday.
No mandatory pit stops and free tyre choice for the quali race.
Also for the main race on Sunday, all teams have a free tyre choice
Mercedes did a simulation of the quali race and said that they would only make up for 4 to 5 positions, which means that the top teams have a disadvantage here. But in 2021 the FIA can make the quali race without the agreements of the teams so it is better for everyone to test it in 2020.
