With many more Formula One cars being built for next year than there are places on the grid, I gather that eliminating trials might be held. As a spectator I find that Formula One races are far too short and, except for Formula Three, the supporting races are usually not worth watching. So why not have two heats and a final? The first heat to consist of the first, third and fifth (etc) fastest in practice, and the other for the second, fourth and sixth (etc). The fastest twelve in each heat would go to the final!
