F1 qualifying to remain unchanged

F1's qualifying reversal

The FIA's Formula One commission has rejected Bernie Ecclestone's proposals to introduce a new qualifying format for the British Grand Prix and has instead decided to stick with the current regulations until the end of 2004. (so sayeth Autosport)

I was so looking forward to some actual drama being brought back to qualifying. What on Earth are the FIA thinking these days?

Aren't we getting a little sensitive these days Alex...

I did not mention Ferrari anywhere in my post.

Actually, I think it can be blamed on Minardi and Jordan... I know Paul Stoddard was up in arms over it because it doomed his car to starting last.

Oh yeah, they start there anyway. Oh well, that's what he said anyway...

Hey, F1 world needs a scapegoat, otherwise it's too boring.

Well, since it was brought up.
