F1 bosses using eSports to evaluate change to grid formation process

In which Pat Symonds takes a shot at "someone" (aka Bernie)
Symonds pointed to the uproar caused by a sudden qualifying format change in 2016, which was scrapped after just two races following criticism from both fans and drivers, to back the idea of simulating a proposed change rather than making a knee-jerk decision.

"Some might remember that a couple of years ago, someone who is no longer involved in F1 decided it would be a good idea to change the qualifying procedure and at a whim that was done. There was no simulation of it whatsoever.

"A few people with an IQ that ran into double figures did look at it and decided it was going to be a disaster and sure enough it was a disaster but nevertheless it went ahead and sure enough it was a disaster. How do things like that happen? We can't let happen again."
