Qualifications for tomorrow's race starts at 10:45. The qualification for "2-race events" (this is the only one this year) is different than the knock-out sessions that we've gotten used to. We have 2 groups of cars, with a single 12-minute session for each. Only 5 minutes of green flag time in guaranteed. The fastest in practice pics whether to have his/her session go first or second (second if they expect conditions to improve, first if rain is threatening).
