In principal this sounds really exciting qualifying where we could even see overtaking manouvres. However two main thing there is what would neet to be sorted.
1. In what order they would start the first lap. Should it be that the fastest which would be leading the pack (i.e. based on friday practise) or reversed or random? I'm leaning over the assumably fastest guy would go first. If it would be reversed based on the current WDC standings, we would have a action packed qualifying and interesting race.
2. If cars comes over the finish line right on each others tails and it later proves out that the first car was the slowest and it still hold the car behind for until he is informed that he is eliminated, the driver behind is compromised. Maybe this would not be as possible if the fastest guy would start first. And if you mess up the friday practise you can't blame anybody else but yourself)For sure the best would be the best in this format also over the season
and what really tics me in this, is that it would generate a grid which could produce interesting RACE even without rain. The thing what I like the most is the equal fuel loads.
And I would not give a point for qualifying. It's enough reward to have the pole position for the race where the points will be given.
And last for those who are complaining about blocking I suggest some objective examination of the qualifying formats what we've had. In only one there were no blocking and we know that it was not good for you guys. Even in the current format there are always some blocking going on. On the 12 lap format the same, in fri & sat qual there were blocking.
