2. To limit the number of hours required for preparing the car for the following day.

3. To allow enough reconfiguration of the cars to make Saturday morning practice a useful session.

After the start of sprint qualifying, cars will be in full parc fermé. A limited number of components will be able to be changed after qualifying: * Weight distribution may be altered

* Power unit and gearbox cooling may be adjusted by altering the engine cover outlets or louvres providing the declared ambient temperatures recorded by the FIA appointed weather service provider one hour before the start of qualifying and one hour before the start of sprint qualifying varies by 10 degrees centigrade or more.
