Qualifying consists of four 15 minute sessions with a 10 minute break between each. Only one driver per A1 Team is allowed to take part in Qualifying but that driver must have completed at least three timed laps in an Official Practice session. Each driver is limited to three laps - effectively one "flying lap" - per session and must record at least two times, an aggregate of which will determine that A1 Team's position on the grid for Sunday's Sprint race. The grid for the Feature race will be determined by the outcome of the Sprint race.
 
I won't be able to watch it all, no American stations are airing it. :(

There must be some shocking drivers in the pack to be that much slower in the same car!

I think they can change settings, and tune the car. I'm not sure, though. But if that's the case, it can be some shocking teams, instead of shocking drivers...
 
^ yep, they can adjust car settings etc, so someone might have chosen the wrong setup :think:
 
I found the first race a bit dull and processional, but the second race was full of action - good way to kick off a new series.

I was confused at first - I thought each team was going to run two cars, but clearly that's not the case.
 
Hey where can I see the championship points? I cant find it on their website :?
 
^Thanx

Yey Australia is in 2nd, NZ just behind - That should be a good battle :p
Im gonna go catch the latest race on FoxSports soon..
