I dunno about this new format. The 2 15 minute elimination sessions were cool and great fun to watch, once you worked out what was happening.
However I thought that the last 20 minute session was a bit of a farce.
They all just drove round wasting petrol until the last 5 minutes. In the first 15 minutes no one posted a time better than 1.37 (1.31/2 were true times). Then they all pitted, changed their tyres and went mad for a fast lap. The last 5 minutes were absolutely cracking, the first 15 were a waste.
