Here we go again!

Formula One's Sunday qualifying is likely to be discontinued after this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix in favour of a single Saturday session. The International Automobile Federation (FIA) said the 10 teams had unanimously agreed to change qualifying procedure.

The proposal is for a single qualifying session on Saturday afternoon with drivers each having a single timed lap. The new format could be in place for the European Grand Prix at the Nuerburgring in Germany on 29 May. FIA president Max Mosley has given his seal of approval to the plans.
