F1 Fans.....Qualifying

Boy oh boy did the FIA flub that one up!!!!!

The old formula was pure genius, it was similar to bubble day at the Indy 500 every two weeks or so. The new scenario went over like a fart in church...............

I agree, what a catastrophe that was, hopefully the will revert to the old system for the next race, maybe increase the tyre allocation so teams can really hammer it without having to save tyres for race day.

I'm watching the race Replay on my Apple TV NBC app. This is a nice easy way to never have to set a dvr.

It is hard to understand Ferrari's thought process by keeping Vettel on those Super soft tyres when the 2 Mercedes restarted on mediums, there should be an F1 strategist looking for a job this morning!!!!

2 minutes left in Q3 and not a car on the track. Absolutely ridiculous. I'm very glad that they are dumping this format and going back to the old way for the rest of the season.

I was completely confused by that whole qualifying process. The announcers didn't help explain much. They seemed as confused as me.
