The weather has held off so weve walked around most of the 7km long track.

Time to relax watch the sprint (not race) with a sherbet and pomme frites.

That's what I can see at my PC rain radar.

Hopefully they pull the red flag and wait for a drier moment later today .

Another option is : They can also stop the sprintrace behind the safety car ...
What a mess . Ough !!!

And the track shows a rainbow ...

I just heard if the track is declared wet they can change when it dries out

That means any time they want
And obviously when it's dry and starts to rain, they're allowed to change to intermediates/wets. Otherwise it would become very dangerous very fast

Think they won't race , and just run a few laps behind the safety car ..
That's the best decision in this dangerous situation .

What is the rule for a race? The commentators mentioned something about 2 laps

Would like to see these guys race in full wet conditions and take risks as they see fit. Currently F1 waits until conditions are pretty much intermediate tires and then switch to dry. Look at how F1 used to race with poor visibility. No more!
