Pole position in MotoGP next season will be decided by a new 15-minute shoot-out involving 12 riders in a revamp of qualifying for 2013. The current three 45-minute practice sessions will remain on the schedule but what would previously have been the opening 30-minutes of qualifying will now be classed as FP4 and not play a role in deciding grid positions.

Like fuel regs, as we saw today "robbed of a race for the sake of bullshit rules" i do not blame casey for leaving, shame they will cockup the supers as well. Pinicle of motor sport / running out of fuel!

Not a fan

Not a fan of this, the current qualfying format has nothing wrong with it, yes on occasion the faster riders get caught behind a CRT bike that ruins there lap but the CRTs are going in 2014 so why not just keep the current qualifying session format till then. I fear for the future of MotoGP with silly rule changes like this hapening more and more often.

i admire the efforts being put in to boost grid size , next year is only 5 short of this season . 4 bike rule is working excellent to boost the grid. also admire the fuel limit rule , it boosts the overall spectacle as battles disperse as riders drop out empty. so excited for next year. spec ecu will eventually be the icing on the cake as 16 bikes challenge a major all in battle at 60klms of fuel saving hell bent for leather carnage that will have blind men on the edge of there seats screaming for the end of the world. the shoot out is the perfect way to take my mind away from the empty pits. caramel asparagus is a business genius whe has me totally convinced and blindingly ecstatic.
