F1 chiefs will move to change the qualifying format within days after the new elimination-style system endured a farcical debut at the Australian GP. The newly-devised system, which sees drivers knocked out at 90-second intervals from mid-way through each of the three sessions, was panned by drivers, team bosses and pundits after the new rules confused fans and meant cars were not on track at what were meant to be decisive moments of the session.Polesitter Lewis Hamilton was already in parc ferme three minutes before the chequered flag fell, while a host of drivers had earlier been knocked out when their cars were not even on track. Conclusions from qualifying for the Australian GPBut after an immediate backlash from fans on social media, and condemnation of the new system from a number of the sports leading figures, moves are already underway to make immediate changes for the second round of the season in Bahrain in two weeks time.There is a will [to change it], Mercedes boss Toto Wolff said on Saturday night in Melbourne. Head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff said the new qualifying format is rubbish, and thinks discussions will take place over reverting to last years form Nobody tried to damage the spectacle in qualifying on purpose. The basic idea of having a shootout and every 90 seconds somebody drops out could trigger results that give a certain variability and could mean that a favourite gets it wrong.So the basic concept was not completely stupid but, as with many things, the devil lies in the detail and weve seen today that we actually complicated things in a time that we should simplify them.There was periods when no car was running, you saw that at the end, and that wasnt exciting. Qualifying report Lewis Hamilton dominates in Australia to take pole That should be the target [to change by Bahrain].With the season already underway, a unanimous vote of the F1 Commission will be required to change the regulations again - with such a move possibly taking place as early as Monday.Technically you need a couple of days to change whatever you want, said McLaren racing director Eric Boullier.You just need an e-vote by fax or by email and the FIA Commission members can give their opinion. If everybody agrees, it should be unanimous and it could be done.Whens the Australian GP on Sky Sports F1?It appears likely that the three-part qualifying system will revert to the rules used over the last decade, with a group of cars exiting at the end of Q1 and Q2 respectively before the top 10 compete for pole in Q3. Sky Sports F1s Martin Brundle and David Croft give their damning verdict on the new F1 qualifying format which resulted in no action for the last four min It seems theres a unanimous desire amongst both the team bosses and the drivers themselves and other power brokers within the sport to get all this changed, probably back to the way it was last season in time for the Bahrain Grand Prix, reported Sky Sports News HQs Craig Slater.The shake-up of qualifying was only first agreed two weeks ago by the Strategy Group and F1 Commission and had already provoked controversy among drivers, who had argued that it would not work.Team managers also met with FIA race director Charlie Whiting to express reservations about the new-look Q3 during testing at Barcelona, but the elimination system was subsequently rubber-stamped in its original form by the World Motor Sport Council last week. Ted Kravitz brings you all the latest news from qualifying at the Australian GP Wolff believes F1 is right to be looking at ways to improve its spectacle, but suggests it needs to take longer working on any more radical solutions.There are two perspectives, he said. The first is we had a qualifying format that was pretty okay and in order to spice things up this is where we ended up. The obvious choice is to return to what we had before, its in the regulations. If we were to reinvent a different format I think we need to think carefully about what that would do.We shouldnt close our eyes to trying to make the spectacle better - that is important - but it should be a thought through process.Hamilton enjoys sexy laps for pole positionThe first race of the 2016 F1 season, the Australian GP, is exclusively live on Sky Sports F1.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has called on Formula One to abolish its rules on track limits in order to solve boring asphalt run-off areas.The FIA tightened its rules on track limits at last months Hungarian Grand Prix by imposing drive-through penalties on drivers if they exceeded track limits four times during the race at Turns 4 and 11.Wolff insists F1 would be far more spectacular if it eradicated track limits totally and left the drivers alone.The tarmac run off is so boring anyway that drivers are able to go off and re-join, Wolff said. If you go off the track you should be in a wall or in a gravel bed. If there is tarmac, let them have the quickest line.A million miles of run off areas, it becomes less and less spectacular and audiences have less interest in what we do, so my opinion is -- be it Club or Copse -- let them drive the quickest line.If it is somewhere too unsafe because we are coming too close to the barriers or when you re-join you are putting others in danger, then OK look at the specifics of that corner but for the rest just let them go, let them drive. [It is] spectacular pictures.Wolff believes the recent moves to police track limits, which has included using electronic sensors, is sending F1 in the wrong direction. He argues it is ridiculous to penalise drivers for going off track by the smallest of margins.If you start to analyse white lines, and whether a driver has put 2cm of his tyre on a white line and his lap time is going away, nobody understands anymore, Wolff explained.ddddddddddddhis is not long jump, where two centimetres makes the jump invalid, this is a six-kilometre track and two-centimetres shouldnt be changing that. Just leave the drivers alone, let them drive, provide spectacular pictures over the kerbs.A week later at Hockenheim FIA race director Charlie Whiting had to clarify track limits at Turn 1 after drivers were left confused, believing an agreement had been reached with the FIA in a Strategy Group meeting to move away from imposing penalties.Wolff feels the lack of consistency in F1s rules -- which has included the decision to revert back to the old qualifying format after two races and to free up radio communications half-way through the season -- risks alienating fans.Consistency in the rules is very important because we are not changing the size of a football goal every game and I felt that, in the last strategy meeting, we made really good progress on the various items.Finally, the radio nonsense goes away and provides again narrative for fans and spectators and TV audiences, and then we discussed the track limits should be limited by the kerbs and that therefore the drivers should go the quickest possible way.
