Just one race into the new Formula One season and unhappy drivers are calling the series' decision-making "obsolete and ill-structured" and calling for a "restructuring" of its governance.A rushed decision to change the rules of qualifying, and then subsequently scrap those changes after the season-opening Australian Grand Prix last weekend, showed how much F1 is riddled with confusion and uncertainty as it tries to regain popularity. That was further underlined in another volte-face Thursday when F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone said the unpopular new qualifying format will remain in place – temporarily – at the Bahrain GP next week.This comes after four-time champion Sebastian Vettel – a critic of the new qualifying format which underwhelmed spectators and frustrated drivers in Melbourne – joined former champ Jenson Button in demanding better leadership. The last session, Q3, saw the first of the eight remaining drivers eliminated after five minutes until two cars were left for the final minute and a half.F1 has become predictable over the past few seasons.
