New quali?

There’s an interesting piece over at autosport.com, that says the Formula One Teams’ Association will be looking at the possibility of a new qualifying format for next season, which would change the whole format of F1 Saturdays as they currently are.

Anyway, what they’ll be discussing is an idea that would see all of the cars out on track at the beginning of the session, on the same amount of fuel, with the slowest driver being eliminated after each lap.

Then after a total of 14 laps, the quickest six drivers left would scrap it out for pole, still using the same fuel load.

There’s even an idea to include a championship point for pole and some prize money.

I don’t know how this would work with Bernie’s proposed gold medals for winners rather than points mind you, but they might not even be considering that. Which frankly I think is a rubbish idea anyway.

I’m not sure what I think of the quali idea as I quite like the current set-up, but it would add an interesting spectacle and we’d get some proper on track tussles and a realistically fastest driver on pole, rather than what we’ve had a few times this last season with whoever’s running lightest on fuel sitting at the front.

What do you think?

Can we just have qualifying which shows which car/driver is fastest? Isn’t that the point of racing, even F1. Use the current format and get rid of the stupid race fuel final session and have a real shoot out. Yes award an extra point, do that for fastest lap in the race as well.

I think they should have two races a sprint 1hr on a Sat and 2hr race on the sunday and forget qualifying.

The grid would be a reverse grid based on this years or in the case of the 1st race last years position in the drivers championship. It would give some great racing and over taking. Just look at Brisca Stock car racing the best guys still win but they have to over take the whole feild fantastic racing.The two race set up would give fans a real show on a sat

Fuel load doesn’t seem to matter to the Brawn GP guys.
Button on pole by 0.6 secs with more fuel than Vettel.
just shows you its not the fuel, its the car.

We need to scrap Quali and have a hours sprint race on the Sat and 2hr race on the Sun. The grid for the 1st race is the championship position in reverse and then reverse champion position for the rest of the season.

works in stock cars that way they have to over take

Cheap VPS or virtual private server is the ultimate solution to costly maintenance web servers. In fact, virtual private server is more advanced than shared hosting & is more like dedicated server, but to emphasize, at a much lower cost. The low cost of virtual private server is the significant difference between shared web-site hosting and dedicated server. A slightly advanced than shared website hosting and has the features of a dedicated server, but it is way cheaper than a dedicated server. The financial advantage of using virtual private server is not the only advantage it could give to its customers or users. Explained below are the additional advantages and disadvantages of using cheap virtual private servers.

Advantages of Cheap VPS:
The first thing that you could get from your individual virtual private server is the root access to your server. It means that you can have access to the root level of the hosting server. Thus, you have the ability to put in & configure any programs you require. Additionally, you can also host a limitless number of net sites through Apache’s virtual hosts & manage them efficiently. Not only this, but you can also host other services, such as a mail server, an FTP server, or any type of server you want. You may even use VPS for file storage or as a backup for all of your files. Since VPS is isolated from other sites present on the physical server, it is secured that no harmful script or application used by other webmaster, that can harm your website.

Disadvantages of Cheap VPS:
There are definite disadvantages in using cheap VPS or virtual private servers. For, you cannot get managed servers. This means that in case you have no idea how to set up & configure your own VPS, it is a huge disadvantage. This disadvantage leads us to get another disadvantage, that is, you are solely responsible of all the installation, maintenance, security measures and updates on your VPS. Thus, in the event you do not possess the high-proficiency in using the VPS to control the working of the net site, the applications used, & the server resources skillfully, you will have a major issue & your VPS becomes unmanageable. Additionally, cheap VPS hosting designs might give you a whole operating process of your own to work with, you still share hardware resources with other VPS users on the host server. Therefore, in the event you are jogging intensive programs that need high performance, you may need to make use of other technique of website hosting, such as co-location or a dedicated server.

Remember, the great features & capabilities of the dedicated server are available for pricey fees to you. So if your web-site does not need high finish performance, cheap VPS are ideal for you. They are economical, efficient and offer excellent benefits for your website. Therefore, cheap VPS or virtual private servers can be reliable, but since it on a budget plan, do not expect as much as you would from expensive VPS plans.
