FALLOUT FROM MONZA
Should the current qualifying procedure be changed?
Qualifying for the last grand prix race at Monza was memorable but for all the wrong reasons with rumors beginning to circulate around the paddock of a new reformatted qualifying session.
During the final 10-car shootout seven cars failed to set times at the end of the session because no-one wanted to take the lead and act as slipstream for their rivals so recorded no lap times at all.
Some teams have suggested the prospect of a final sprint race to determine the grid for the main race a day but Red Bull principle Christian Horner believes the current system works just fine and doesn't need modifying especially as a sprint race would favor just the top tier teams and wouldn't allow for unexpected conditions or driver errors which can change a race's outcome citing this year's German Grand Prix as an example .
