F1 ‘musical chairs’ qualifying may not happen in 2016

F1’s new ‘musical chairs’ qualifying format may not happen at all in 2016.

Earlier, the changes touted to mix up the grid were approved by the F1 Commission, but Bernie Ecclestone subsequently told the Independent newspaper that his software-writers would not have time to be ready for Melbourne.

Ferrari team boss Maurizio Arrivabene admits he is no particular fan of the shakeup.

“In my opinion, it is still necessary to understand if it will increase the entertainment or it will be a flop,” he told La Stampa newspaper.

In any case, F1 supremo Ecclestone has said ‘musical chairs’ was also a compromise solution as the teams refused to back his real idea for reverse grids.

Now, he has told Forbes’ F1 business journalist Christian Sylt: “We will see if the changes that have been announced get overturned.”
