The FIA announces the approval of a new classification system agreed by the World Council of the that we did echo of the news in your day by having a future a little uncertain. The new system of classification is divided into Q1, Q2 and Q3, but with some very important changes that will affect the traffic on the track, as the cars will be rolling more consistently not to lose his position, eliminating downtime and making the action on the track will come up.
The new system has been approved as an official at a meeting of the World Council of motorsport, which was held in Geneva, Switzerland.

The same for the Q2 where it will be 8 and will go on to Q3 that will only last 14 min and you will have 8 participants. The disposal in Q3 will begin after 5 min of the start of the session and will repeat the elimination until there is only the Poleman….
