I think this will be a much more exciting season of A1 racing.....I'm guessing the championship will be a lot tighter....

A1 Grand Prix Chairman David Clare insists the third round of the series in Beijing will go ahead as planned, despite a catalogue of problems that have contributed to just 25-minutes of running being conducted thus far and qualifying to be cancelled.

Having only confirmed a venue a handful of weeks before the race was due to take place, a problem with the layout of the circuit, in particular the exceptionally tight turn eight hairpin, had already forced practice sessions to be postponed while a revision was sought.

Such a change was found overnight, with drivers given a 90-minute practice session ahead of qualifying to get used to the circuit. However, after just 25-minutes it was discovered that a manhole cover on a racing line was coming loose under the pressure of the cars travelling over it at high speed...
