British motor sport weekly Motorsport News are suggesting the Formula One’s controversial new qualifying system won’t be used at the first round of the season in Bahrain.
The procedure would see the entire field on-track for qualifying with the slower drivers gradually whittled away and twelve slowest cars allowed to refuel before the race. The over-complicated system has been put in place for the new season but has rightly attracted criticism for allowing too many potential loopholes and complexities to what should be a straightforward battle to set the fastest possible lap.
Hopefully the new system will be dropped in favour of a return to 2002-style qualifying or a single-lap, low-fuel lap for each driver.
