Pathetic.

FIA need to look at themselves. Wankers!

What the ****!

Is this supposed to me more exciting? Watching yourself be eliminated?

What's wrong with a group of cars and a stop watch, fastest wins! That's what we want!

This isn't worth waking up for.

I thought start of Q1 it worked well. But it really doesn't work in Q2 or 3.

I give it another race before it gets altered. The thing is normally in the old style quali if Force India finished 9th and 10th I would have been happy. Today as the clock ticked down I lost my excitement as it felt like we missed out on any of those moments where you think, **** we might sneak a cheeky 4th place here.

There's just something not quite right about it and looking at the qualifying as a whole, it all seemed a bit inevitable in the end. Mercedes and Ferrari the top two, Manor, Haas and Sauber the worst three teams.

In fact I think it only really worked in Q1 because it forced all the cars out from the start, after the crap cars started being eliminated, it all became a bit inevitable really.

Pile of poo imo.

Manor drivers get 1 lap and they are out.

Q3 was a joke. Drivers getting out of their cars with 5 minutes to go was a 2-finger salute to Bernie.

Farce.

Maybe keep for Q1 only. It will get changed.

I think both Manor drivers were unlucky as their team weren't sure how the rules quite worked unfortunately. Even down to Ericsson at the end he was flying around the track only to be told, you might as well stop, you have run out of time.

Didn't go as I think they would've liked. Kyvat the only real casualty early, outside of that I think most drivers/teams conceded the sessions.

Disappointing.

The only way it could have worked is more tyres and longer elimination times.Today was boring.

CPFC_DAVE77 the start time is indeed 5am GMT as worked out by Bones14. If you look at post 59 (on Page 3) of this thread you will see details of times and radio/TV coverage which I add for each race.

Decent first race. Typical that both Hulk and Checo pitted then the crash happened the very next lap and that compketely screwed our race strategy.

Even though it was a very familiar result of ROS, HAM, VET, I felt the season showed sone promise. I kind of tailed off the last two seasons through sheer boredom, but I think this year shows some real promise. All teams look decent, even Werhlein in the Manor looked like he might do something at one point. Also like to mention Joleyon Palmer. Seen him a fair bit in GP2 over the last 5 years and got to say even though he didn't make the points on debut, he certainly looked like he belonged in F1 unlike say someone like Max Chilton who just bought their place.

Good race!

Well done to Grosjean and Haas, that's a great effort.

Toro Rosso won't be too happy, supposed to be picking up points early in the season.

Max has pace though, even after the spin got right back at Sainz, who also looks good.

The Hulk is a great driver. He deserves a Ferarri seat ahead of Raikkonen in my opinion.
