F1: Stop in qualy and you're out, says FIA.

Stop in qualy and you're out, says FIA.

Any driver stopping on the track during F1 qualifying will take no further part in the procedure, even if they've gone fast enough to make it through to the next round.

Thus if a driver who has done a time in session two that qualified him for the top 10 subsequently spins off, he will have to start from 10th place.

The last minute change to the Sporting Regulations has been introduced with the full agreement of all the teams, and had solved what could have been a serious problem for the FIA.

As written the rules allowed cars that had stopped on the circuit to be returned to the pits between session one and two, and two and three. While this was feasible at modern circuits with good internal access roads, it was rather less easy to manage at tracks where cars are towed back on the circuit itself, because the five minute gaps between the sessions did not allow much time for the track to be open to recovery vehicles.

In either case it was pot luck as to whether a car could be returned in time, which could have led to arguments had one car made it back, and another not.

Now any cars which are towed back will be held in parc ferme, and not returned to the teams.

It's fairly new, its inaugural F1 race was in 2004, unlike the MotoGP track in Quatar the F1 track in Bahrain doesn't have astroturf covering the sand on the side of the track though, which I'm not sure is a good thing.
