NEWS STORY
01/04/2006

Following the confusion over starting positions at the Malaysian Grand Prix, the FIA have introduced clarifications to the qualifying procedure and the line up of cars on the grid for the San Marino GP 2006 onwards.

The procedure to be used for today's session in Melbourne however, remains unchanged.

From Imola onwards, the sessions will be run as previously in Bahrain and Malaysia, and today in Melbourne, with the six slowest cars being eliminated from qualifying at the end of each of the first two sessions. However, the times recorded will only be used in part to form the grid.

The changes have been made with the following goals in mind:

  • To increase transparency in the decision making processes
  • To reduce the cost of competing
  • To improve the sporting spectacle
