F1 drivers propose Q1 session 'split' for Monaco

Formula one drivers will propose that the 'Q1' qualifying session for next weekend's Monaco grand prix be split into parts.

A group of drivers from both ends of the grid fear the traffic implications of 24 cars being on the short and twisty street layout at the same time, particularly with three teams vastly off the pace.

"I don't think it's a bad idea (to split Q1)," said reigning world champion and current championship leader Jenson Button.
