NC, you heard right, but not for the days of one lap qualifying. Back in the days when we had the 107 rule and one hour quallies, you did sometimes get drivers who were unable to set a time, but the FIA would look at their best time in the practice sessions and if that was within 107% then they'd get in starting from the back of the grid. All the other teams had to agree to this but I don't ever recall anyone being rejected. When one lap qually came in I remember Martin Brundle saying he'd asked team bosses if the 107 rule still applied and no-one was sure whether it was still applicable or not. Continued.
