F1s drivers have voiced their opposition to the sports proposed qualifying revamp as uncertainty reigns over whether the changes will be introduced in full. The FIA announced last week the F1 Commission had voted unanimously to make changes to the knockout qualifying system from potentially as early as this season, with drivers to be eliminated from sessions more regularly than is currently the case.However, within days of the announcement, Bernie Ecclestone suggested the new rules might be delayed until Mays Spanish GP - the fifth round of the 2016 season. On Tuesday, it then emerged that the original idea could be watered down, with only Q1 and Q2 featuring 90-second eliminations while Q3 would stay as it is, albeit with eight cars instead of the current 10 running in the final phase.The majority of drivers - including Kimi Raikkonen, Jenson Button and Nico Rosberg - met with FIA race director Charlie Whiting in the paddock on Wednesday evening to talk through the planned changes. Carlos Sainz arrives for the meeting with the FIA And Force Indias Sergio Perez revealed they made their concerns known.We felt that it can definitely mess up the rules and for the fans it could be quite difficult to understand, Perez told Sky Sports News HQ as the drivers left the meeting.Its complicated for us already, so for the fans it will make things more and more complicated. We feel that the qualifying at the moment is really good and I dont think theres a reason to change that.Several drivers had earlier aired similar views about the need to shake up Saturdays in the first place.I find it quite strange that there is a change to qualifying, Williams Valtteri Bottas told Sky Sports. The idea behind the proposed changes is to create more unpredictable grids I havent heard anyone complaining about it. Im fine with whatever system it is but l dont know what the point is.Saubers Felipe Nasr added: I dont think there was ever an issue about the qualifying format.The final legislative body in the F1 structure, the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC), meets on Friday and any change to qualifying for 2016 would have to be rubber-stamped in that meeting.But while it is understood the WMSC can amend proposals passed on by the F1 Commission before they enter the rulebook, any significant revisions would have to go back to be agreed at Strategy Group and F1 Commission level.

But we saw when we got into the groove what we can do as a unit.Brock Osweiler didnt fare as well in his Texans debut, failing to lead Houston to any points in three drives. Houston got on the board early when John Simon returned a fumble by Carlos Hyde 41 yards for a touchdown but struggled to generate any offense with its starters.Was it completely what I wanted tonight? Absolutely not. But rarely is it ever, Osweiler said. I think the biggest thing about tonight is we did some really good things offensively and we know we have some things that we need to work on and grow and get better at.With Kaepernick sitting out with tightness in his throwing shoulder, Gabbert got to make his case in the battle to win San Franciscos starting quarterback job for first-year coach Chip Kelly.Gabbert, who started the final eight games last season, did little to improve his position in the first two drives. He was off-target on his first two passes as San Francisco went three-and-out in 41 seconds on the opening drive and started the game 1 for 6 overall.But he was much more effective on the third drive when he scrambled 13 yards for a first down and then hit McDonald for the long score when Benardrick McKinney slipped in coverage.The good thing is that he did settle down, Kelly said. There were some real positives that we can build on but there were some throws that even if you ask Blaine, hed say he wished he had those back.Gabbert finished 4 for 10 for 63 yards and a touchdown.Osweiler, who signed a $72 million, four-year contract witth Houston in the offseason, went 4 for 7 for 27 yards.ddddddddddddHe took one sack and left for good after throwing an incomplete pass to Braxton Miller on fourth down early in the second quarter.To put on the Texan uniform, and run out of the tunnel as a team for the first time, it was certainly special, Osweiler said.Tom Savage threw two TD passes in the second half for Houston, connecting on a 9-yarder to former California receiver Stephen Anderson and a 9-yarder to Akeem Hunt in the fourth quarter.ROOKIE WATCHTexans: Miller, a third-round pick, had four catches for 34 yards, including an acrobatic 24-yard gain in the third quarter from Savage. First-round pick Will Fuller had just one catch for 4 yards.49ers: First-round DL DeForest Buckner was pushed around a bit in the running game and finished with one solo tackle and two assists.INJURY UPDATETexans: CB A.J. Bouye sat out after injuring his groin Friday in practice and will have an MRI on Monday.49ers: Backup QB Thad Lewis was 12 for 21 for 97 yards before leaving the game with a lower-leg injury. ... DL Arik Armstead sat out the game after being limited last week in practice by a shoulder injury.POSITION BATTLESTexans: DL Christian Covington made a good showing as he got a look with the starters with J.J. Watt sidelined with a back injury. Covington forced the fumble by Hyde that led to Houstons first score.49ers: RT Anthony Davis, who sat out last year in temporary retirement, played with the second string behind Trent Brown in his first game in more than 19 months and was beaten by Eric Lee for a sack late in the first half.QUOTABLETexans: Knowing my family and friends are in the stands really supporting me, that was a dream come true, said Anderson, who grew up in nearby San Jose.49ers: Colin isnt 100 percent, Kelly said. It wouldnt have been fair to put him in and judge him on that competition.
