The jury is out on this one for me.

On the one hand it'll be great to see the guys going for it on low fuel. On the other hand, aggregating times is just going to get confusing for thre fans.

I thought they stopped aggregating times after race red-flags for just that reason, so why start it up again now?

If they are going to fart-arse around with 2x 25 minute sessions, just give then the hour. I know it was a mad scramble at the end and not much happened at the start, but I found the anticipation and tension made it better.

It was used for years, so I don't know why they really changed it in the first place.

But then again, I'll take any improvement going and will sit back in the stands and enjoy it.

I'll echo that Spud ... anything's better than what we've got now. As for who it'll benefit, I'd say MS, RB, JPM, DC at least.

Kirk has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I have mixed reactions about this one. True, it will be nice to see the return to quick laps on low fuel but the pressure is essentially off the driver to put in that 1 quick lap when needed ... and that is a shame.

There is a lot of pressure on the drivers to do a quick lap - but they need to do it twice.

I agree that the aggregate rule is wrong, though.

DEFINITELY DC, and probably Monty and Webber. You only need to look at Webber's Minardi quali efforts in 2002 to know that.

Ferrari as usual will have a handle on it.

The new way (similar to the old) will benefit the better teams and penalize the weaker ones. It will also damage the finances of many teams already strapped financially, as they will not be able to get their sponsor's any time to speak of in front of the camera.

Bad move for all and certainly the sport in the long run.

While the smaller teams might get less % of the coverage it might work out alright if the new system is more popular and more people watch. There is no point in getting 10% of the coverage if no one watches. Additionally aren't they getting cheaper engines for it?
