Format changes[edit]

With an entry of 51 cars, race organisers changed the format of qualifying to allow every driver a shot at qualifying for the Marlboro Masters itself. The top 28 drivers from qualifying were automatically entered into the race, with the remaining drivers going into a qualifying race, as seen at the Macau Grand Prix. In the qualifying race, the top four finishers would progress to the Marlboro Masters.
