The 107% rule to be axed

The FIA says that it will propose the cancellation of the 107% qualifying rule because of the new format in qualifying which may result in some rather unconventional grids and lap times.

"The teams have been saying that it's pointless," said Max Mosley, "so we are going to invite them to cross it off. It's not important but it's probably going to be tidier to get rid of it."
