Qualifying consists of three parts referred to as Q1, Q2 and Q3.

All 20 drivers start Q1 but only 15 progress to Q2. Places 16 – 20 are the Elimination Zone so the driver in 15 is referred to as the Driver at Risk.

And then in Q2, 15 drivers start and only 10 progress to Q1. Places 11 – 15 are then the Elimination Zone so the driver in 10th is referred to as the Driver at Risk.
