I just don''t get it.
DC''s time was 01:18.187 hence, he shall be on the pole. His time was around 200/1000 of a second faster than Hamilton''s. Yet, he is on the 11th. spot only. IsnĀ“t the pole position supposed to be reserved for the faster car?
This qualyfing system of three rounds is interestng, but I still miss the originial "everyone vs. everyone" system in wich Ayrton Senna always shone brigthly.

Look Gabriel, if you don't know how the qualifying system works, why waste time posting? Five cars are elminated after Q1, times are reset. Places 16-20 are awarded based upon times. Five cars are eliminated after Q2, times are reset. Cars are awarded positions 11-15 based upon thet finished this session. For these two sessions the cars are fuelled for the fastest time, ie not much fuel. Top 10 shootout is just that, except the cars must qualify ON THE FUEL THEY'LL START THE RACE ON, hence the slower (cars are heavier) times. Please do some research before posting pointless posts!

Hey, Ramjam 69:

I know pretty well how this qualifying system "works". My point is, I am not so sure it really works. I dislike that under the current qualifying system, the best time at the track does not get the Pole at the grid.

Please re-read this part of my previous post: "This qualyfing system of three rounds is interestng, but I still miss the originial "everyone vs. everyone" (all together) system in wich Ayrton Senna always shone brigthly."

Best regards.
