F1 bosses fail to reach agreement on new qualifying format

Sakhir : Formula One hierarchy failed to arrive at an agreement on its qualifying format here on Sunday. A meeting between F1 team bosses, Bernie Ecclestone and the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) ended without any headway. A new meeting will be held on Thursday to discuss fresh proposals. According to Red Bull boss Christian Horner, race promoters and the FIA are reluctant for the sport to return to the format used last season. "The bottom line is if we don't agree to a compromise then we are stuck with what we have got and I think everyone agrees that what we currently have isn't right," Horner told Sky Sports on Sunday. "We've got a proposal on the table to vote on by Thursday and hopefully we can find a sensible conclusion that gives the right thing for the fans."
