Narain's lap was very impressive as a rookie and if he does well tomorrow also, then he might be starting the race somewhere around 10th place on the grid which is very good. Heres what Narain had to say "Qualifying was a bit tricky for the rookies today as it was so slippery. I am happy with what I have done. Obviously I could have pushed a bit harder but I am learning step by step".

Qualifying is over Gordon. Atleast session 1.

Narain did great! Did you see his lap? He was on the limit, but not over, and his timing reflected that.

However, speaking about the whole session, this new aggregate time thing is terrible IMO. It creates artificial grids, based more on luck than on the drivers/teams performance.

Might as well have them pick their starting positions from a hat.

Thumbs up An Impressive Start!

Narian's inital outing on a F1 track was bloody impresive & especially in the wet. Looks like India has a lot to be proud of. Congatulations guys. One of your countrymen in F1 - That's GREAT man. Anyone know him?
Looking forward to seeing him perform tomorrow. Best of luck!

Dude... I agree with you completely... but with one change in mind... why not also put the car's in a hat and have the driver's pick for the cars as well...

The powers-that-be should realise that this is FORMULA ONE and not IRL... they messed it up with the one shot qualifying, and just when we thought things couldnt get worse.... they introduce this RUBBISH....

Methinks that inspite of MS still being in F1, its going to have an adverse effect on viewership.

well, I sure as hell ain't getting up at 4.30 AM to watch the staged show they call qualifying now.

So i guess that is an adverse affect on viewership right there!!

And yea, the picking cars out of the hat idea would make for some interesting races lol!
