The Formula One Teams' Association, FOTA, will discuss a new qualifying format for the sport when the body meets next month.
FOTA is looking to spice up qualifying, currently divided in three sessions, two of them including a knockout system.
The new idea to be looked at consists of all cars jumping onto the track at the same time and with the same amount of fuel, with the slowest driver being eliminated after each lap.
After 14 laps, the six fastest drivers would then fight for pole position, fitting new tyres but still using the same amount of fuel.
The proposal might even include a championship point for pole position and prize money.
The current format, where the ten quickest drivers fight for the top spot in the final session with an amount of fuel decided by the teams, often sees pole position going to a car that's lighter than the rest.
FOTA will meet on December 4 and if the proposed format is agreed upon by all teams, it is expected to be submitted to the FIA for approval.
