A proposal to introduce reverse-grid races when Formula 1 returns next month is unlikely to be accepted due to opposition from Mercedes – with Red Bull boss Christian Horner telling Sky Sports that Toto Wolff believes it “would interfere with Lewis Hamilton’s championship campaign”.

There has been a fresh push for an experimental sprint race – where the leader of the championship would start at the back – to replace qualifying and determine Sunday’s grid order at tracks which are due to host two races this year to create more unpredictability for the second event.

Austria and Silverstone are both set for back-to-back F1 weekends this summer, with Spielberg kicking off the campaign in early July.
