"Formula 1 is revising its qualifying format as of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on July 11. Replacing the existing single car sessions will be a one hour period split into two 20 minute sessions, with combined times from both forming the grid spot.

Each car must complete six laps in each of the timed periods with the fastest time from each aggregated to produce the overall grid time. Both sessions will be run with free fuel levels, meaning a return to flat out qualifying with cars in their optimum specification.

The parc ferme rules will continue but teams will then fuel the cars after qualifying in preparation for the race.

Many of the teams are believed to have pushed for the second session to be run with race fuel levels but Ferrari's Jean Todt pointed out that if fuel conservation was a factor, drivers would then crawl round on their in-laps having set their quick time, leading to potentially hazardous situations."

This is gonna be great! 2 sessions of seeing the cars go flat out! Qualifying is gonna be fun again
