Welp. They are going to be able to start the new quali system at the start of the season after all. Gonna be interesting to see what strategies the teams adopt to fit this new format. I'm still not completely sold on it, but I'll try and reserve judgement until I actually see it in action.

Quote:
The new system is scheduled to be introduced for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix later this month, despite concerns aired by Formula One Management regarding its implementation due to software issues.

The three qualifying periods will remain, with Q1 to run for 16 minutes, with the slowest car eliminated after seven minutes, and then every 90 seconds thereafter until 15 remain to head into Q2.

The second period is to run for 15 minutes, and will follow the same process as Q1, with the first driver to be eliminated after six minutes until eight remain.

For the 14-minute Q3, the first driver will be knocked out after five minutes, with the session continuing until only the man on pole is left standing.

I think he said it wasn't that bad. That's practically praise from Kimi.

I can't believe it does impede the vision. Maybe since they are turning left and right a bunch that center post isn't an issue but it looks like it would be

I gotta say i was a little taken back at first, but, it definitely grew on me. I kinda dig it. The renaults actually look kinda nice too. Ive always gone back and forth with them. I loved the black and gold lotus throwback look, but they have always looked pretty good in yellow too.

Didnt notice too much difference in sound sadly. They do sound a bit more raw this year, but its a marginal improvement. Which is exactly what the engineers told us it would sound like in the off season.

Yeah I noticed it was a bit louder but only during certain situations. Sounded about the same other times.

Pretty much. Thats just due to the nature of how its constructed. Since it relys on the wastegate for additional noise now, its only really open more under certain conditions. Full out race mode not being one of them

Qualifying is garbage. The 90-second rule is bullshit. I'd like to see them use the next completed lap after the 90-seconds is up.

Even that would be an improvement. As long as youre on your flyer when your 90 seconds is up you should be able to complete your lap instead of just being dropped out immediately. You could be on the best lap of your life, and be .0001 seconds from crossing the finish line, but NOPE. Dropped out. The final car when the checkered flag is dropped is allowed to finish their lap, so why not every car. That was so horrible. With 5 minutes left and plenty of time for other cars to still compete, everyone just pulled it into the pits and parked and the only 2 cars still on track were the 2 damn mercedes. And then rosberg decided to just hang it up, and for the last few minutes of quali you were just watching people walk around the pits. Horrible. It will be changed before the next grand prix. I hope it just gets scrapped and they go back to the old way. That WAS exciting to watch. It didnt need to be changed.

It was bad, and everyone that was responsible for it should feel bad.

I loved how the announcers were just bashing it. No holding back at all. "I feel sorry for the people who paid $300 to see this"

its true tho. Never in this modern day of qualifying have I NOT seen any cars on track for the last 3 minutes of Q3. Just rediculous. This way of quali is not about what skill level you have or how well your car is performing, its how well you can time yourself against the clock to be on track and get a damn lap in.
