With the new ruling on usage of tyres, refuelling & the setting of the engine during qualifying & race day – it is difficult to predict the front runners today would be able to maintain their pace in the first five rounds of tomorrow’s race. The fact that all cars would be heavily fuel on the starting grid as no refuelling is allowed as a new ruling this year, will make this season more interesting to follow.
