Instead of Bahrain going out we'll probably get 12 Hours of Bahrain. Surely an instant classic.

The GTE sprint race idea is stupid. It is gimmicky. Less than about 15 car grid won't cut it when you compare to Blancpain grids. And are they expecting teams (drivers might forget it sometimes...) going 100% and risking the main race next day. Would probably more confusing (as if the different classes weren't already) for the average viewer: why are these GT cars doing a quali race but not the other classes.

Only positive I see that the qualification right now is so pointless across the classes except for the 1 Championship point and except that Le Mans where there is at least a big PR bonus. (Quali might as well as be replaced with extended practice session durations and then the grid being formed from those times.)
