A FIA statement regarding qualifying: "The World Motor Sport Council today approved, via e-vote, the decision to revert to last season's qualification format for the remainder of the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship."

"The format, where the slowest six cars are eliminated at the end of the first two qualifying sessions before a final ten-car shootout for Pole in Q3, will return for this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix."

  • Finally, but it's not over yet even more brain dead ideas are incoming for 2017. You have to kill it with fire before it lays eggs, there is no other way.

    We need to expect anything these days. HALO, fuel consumption less, tyres, no aero, no radio. And they still wander why the interested in F1 is going down.

    For 2017 I suggest a "see how much custard you can wear in your underpants" competition to define the starting grid.
