Marko: Reverse grid qualifying idea 'absurd'

Helmut Marko has labelled Liberty Media’s idea to change qualifying into a reverse grid format as “absurd”.

Marko, clearly, is not a fan.

“These plans are absurd,” he told AutoWeek.com.

“If you did that on circuits like Monaco, Singapore or Barcelona, it would be pointless because overtaking is difficult or even impossible.

“Our sport is supposed to be like (soccer) or tennis, where the basic conditions have not changed fundamentally over the past 30, 40, 50 years,” he added.
