Vettel blasts `circus` nature of F1’s new qualifying format

London, Apr.5 (ANI): Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel has joined the bandwagon of drivers opposing the newly proposed aggregate qualifying format of the Formula One.

According to the latest qualifying format, a driver’s two best laps in each of the three knockout sessions will be combined in order to determine the grid position.

Meanwhile, the 90-second qualifying format that saw the drivers get eliminated one by one rather than being dismissed at the end of each session in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix and in the Bahrain Grand Prix would be dropped.

Hitting back at the new format, the Ferrari driver compared the new system with the circus and insisted that the F1 should focus only on racing, the Guardian reported

Echoing similar views, Mercedes executive director Toto Wolff described the new format as `madness` and said that all the teams wanted to revert back to that of the previous season.

The voting for the proposal will take place on Thursday. (ANI)
