Fuel load quali will be gone for next year anyway, because there won't be refuelling. I welcome a return to low fuel quali, but the parc ferme should be kept for other reasons.

I agree that all the teams should use the same amount of fuel in qualifying,but that will not be an issue next season anyway.In parc ferme now you can still adjust a number of things on the car (front wing etc),and change certain parts.

Satorian has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

As duke_toaster said, parc ferme isn't just about fuel loads. You want the current qualifying mode gone, not parc ferme.

Rules in 2010 wont be much different than the current rules - there's no point in reinventing the wheel, particularly when the focus will be on other things such as the structure of the series, financial arrangements, TV rights etc.

But, I could see some dramatic technical rule changes in future years when FOTA has more time to consider things.

The post-qualifying parc fermé indeed includes more than the amount of fuel. I never denied that.

Despite the 'low-fuel' qualifying laps will return next year, we won't see proper qualifying to return. Drivers are only allowed to change the front wing settings and the tyres. As pure speed isn't required to start from pole position, the rules are still very much against the spirit of the sport.
