chiefs confirm new qualifying format for 2023 in shock shake up leaving Max Verstappen furious

FORMULA ONE bosses have confirmed a new qualifying for 2023 – but reigning world champion Max Verstappen has been left unhappy with the changes. But in the new trial teams will have to run the hard tyre in the first qualifying session, the medium tyre in the second qualifying session and the soft tyre in the third qualifying session. It is not clear how this might affect the usual order but it is possible some teams may excel or struggle on certain tyre compounds on certain tracks, potentially leading to some surprise scenarios in qualifying. It is not confirmed when the new system will be trialled but it is speculated that the first race weekend when fans will see it will be at Imola in May.
