Will the problem of traffic jams during qualification be resolved?

Qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix in 2019 did not go by itself. During several sessions in Formula 1, 2 and 3 there was a traffic jam, which resulted in dangerous situations. During the upcoming Grand Prix a solution has to be found.

Something remarkable happened in Q3 of the Italian qualification in 2019. The effect of the slipstream on Monza was so great that no driver wanted to start the final session at the front. It caused a big traffic jam, so in the end only Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc were in time to drive a lap.

No more traffic jams on Saturday

''Together with the team bosses we will go round the table on Thursday to refresh the memory. We already had a discussion after qualifying last year and those discussions will continue this week'', says Michael Masi according to Racefans.net. The teams and drivers are also hoping for a better outcome.

''Some drivers already let us know on Friday and after qualifying we already had a discussion about this. We were not happy because we missed the opportunity to finish higher with Lando Norris. In addition to our own problems, however, it is important that we look at this with all the teams and find a solution to prevent this from happening'', concludes Andreas Seidl.
