The "bidong" Formula 1 Qualifying session for 2010.
Please give me constructive insights and opinions regarding this.
The "Qualifying Session" will be divided into 2 parts.
a. The First 25 minutes (rubbering down)
a2. 5 minute coffee break.
b. The Second 30 minutes (setting fast lap times)
26 cars are free to run in (a) to rubber down the track, given that everyone in (a) and (b) will be using the harder-compound tires. The six fastest drivers of (a) will be allowed to run the softer-option tire for (b) Fuel load for (a) and (b) will be a fixed 25 laps (or whatever amount of Liters) and there will be no refueling during the entire qualifying session.
(b) will be open for 3 flying laps for each driver. These flying laps can be done in their own time; as long as it falls within 30 minutes. Also, all flying laps will not be counted once the chequered flag is out. The six fastest drivers of (a) will be allowed to run on one set of the softer-option tires and one set of the harder-compound tires. While the other twenty drivers can run on two sets of the harder-compound tires. Pole position driver will be allowed to do donuts (in their own engine life expense) and carry his national flag (team or driver) around his victory lap.
*by the way, lap times will be considered as one for the whole qualifying session. Meaning, if the fastest lap time was set in session (a), this will be the pole position lap.
This, IMHO, would really improve the show
