Qualifying and Villeneuve's Death
The section as currently written is an almost verbatim copy (99%) of the section in the Gilles Villeneuve article on his death. I am removing the duplicate material and adding a link to the section in the Villeneuve article about his death. Theshowmecanuck (talk) 15:33, 17 July 2010 (UTC)
Please note that both Jarier and Cheever are said to have started 14th. If anyone has the right data, please correct that.
- Cheever started 14th. Jarier started 16th. Fixed. Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 22:26, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
Not the first drivers in F1 history to be DNPQ-ed
"This was the first ever race when some drivers took no further part after Friday, as this was the first time that any drivers failed to pre-qualify, namely Paletti and Villota." Pre-qualification has been used before, on several occations in the 1978 F1 season (USA-West, Monaco, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Italy and Canada). In the article about the 1978 United States Grand Prix West is this: "At the start of the weekend, though only 22 cars would make the grid, there were 30 entries, requiring a one-hour pre-qualifying session on Friday morning for the eight non-FICA members. From these eight, the fastest four would join the rest of the field in qualifying for one of the 22 starting spots." — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sjonni86 (talk • contribs) 17:18, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
