Formula 1 bosses have voted unanimously to deliver a dramatic overhaul of the qualifying format for the upcoming season.
Following a meeting of the Strategy Group and F1 Commission in Geneva, the format change has been voted through to spice up the show. Qualifying will remain as a one-hour session, split into three segments, but drivers must be on track throughout each part until they get knocked out. Details on how the new qualifying format will work exactly have yet to be decided, but the general outline has been agreed. Q1 will now last 16 minutes and after seven minutes the slowest driver will take no further part in the session. Every 90 seconds thereafter, the slowest will be knocked out until there are only 15 drivers remaining. After a short break, Q2 will commence and last 15 minutes with the slowest driver eliminated after six minutes. As was the case in Q1, the slowest driver at the time will be knocked out at 90-second intervals until eight remain. Q3 will last 14 minutes and see the process repeated again with the slowest taking no further part after five minutes. The next five drivers will drop out at 90-second intervals leaving the final two drivers to fight it out for pole in the final 90 seconds. The change will require ratification by the World Motor Sport Council, which next meets on March 4.


Would be the worst thing to happen to the sport since the FIA giving Pastor his Super Licence

Haha on the pastor comment.

Hope that system doesn't come into play, sounds crap to me.
