Aggregate grids for 2005
F1 has adopted an unprecedented aggregate qualifying format for next year. Grids will be decided by adding together times set in single-lap sessions on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings.
The Saturday runs will take place with low fuel levels, but in the new Sunday session the cars will be fuelled for the start of the race. The system means that the final grid will not be known until just hours before the start.
Reaction to the format has been mixed among drivers. David Coulthard said: “It’s losing a bit of what qualifying is all about. It should be about man and machine on that day in history driving the nuts off the car.”
