F1 teams agree to ditch elimination qualifying

Formula 1 teams have agreed to ditch elimination qualifying with immediate effect.

Following a meeting with the FIA on Sunday morning, it was agreed unanimously that the system used in Australia should be ditched.

Teams have agreed to revert to the old system from the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The change to the rules needs to be approved still by the Strategy Group and F1 Commission before going to the World Motor Sport Council, but that should be a formality.

The news comes after F1 team bosses united against the system following its first use yesterday.
