Why is F1 so afraid to experiment with different GP formats such as reversed grids, sprint races, etc?

Any time anyone experiments with something publicly, they risk failing and losing face. That's the main reason nothing happens.
Things need to change for a reason, which needs to be debated in public. Formula 1 pays for itself because of the spectators and viewers - if they stop watching, then the big sponsors will be lost and it will go down the pan.
