@bradley13 One thing is, if drivers are demoted but unavailable for the Saturday race, will they have to drop out as I think it is a tad unfair as it could be deemed ‘unfair dismisal’. I am confident I will probably be relagated but cannot and will not for sure be able to race on Saturday.
@bradley13 and @formula-1 – It won’t necessarily be an unfair dismissal. There could be a discussion, in which we decide an appropriate racing time for all competitors. Not to mention that promotion and relegation won’t be completely clean cut. For example, even if I am in the top 3 at the end of the season, if my work shifts don’t allow me to race on a Sunday, then I will not be able to move up, and therefore it has to be decided whether or not driver no.4 moves up, or we stop a driver from the top tier moving down. But still, there is a long way to go before we get to that :)
Aren’t the quali sessions like 20 minutes? Either that or 15. It’s very rare that it will be shortened, because most people tend to do a few laps, come back in, and then go back out, at which point the session is almost over. Obviously, if you’re happy with your time and want to save tyres, then you can just stay in and wait for everyone to finish. Maybe go and grab a snack whilst you’re waiting :)
@raginginferno – @jamiefranklinf1 is right, the qualifying session is 20 minutes, and it literally flys by, so I doubt you’ll worry. Plus, if you’re at the back, you’re never going to be happy with your time ;) haha
