Unless they rewrite the rules again. 1/2 points it is so far. Watch this space.

Normally rain makes a better spectacle of the the race. In this instance it was a super damp squib anticlimax.

Another FIA farce

The only farce was waiting until the last minute to actually call the race off.

I wouldn't want to drive a normal car in rain like that, never mind one with 800bhp and and 35kg of lithium ion batteries about 18 inches from my backside...

That is what I ment they were calling the cars back to the grid without the 10 min warning then when they had got there called it off!

It is a shame, really, about the half points because, at the top end it also halves the difference.

Jenson Button was driving a superb race and all he has to show for it is one extra point.

Amazin what some people post.

The reason they formed the cars up was incase they decided to give the 10 min notice. With the late start time day light and the weather beat them im sure next year they will go back to 2pm local time start.

You seem to have an opinion on every conceivable subject.

You have already admitted knowing little about F1.

Why don't you try to refrain from posting silly comments, when you obviously don't know what you are talking about.

Noldi I don't think the light necessarily beat them because they were ready to restart, but the two hours were up!

I would have thought the two hour rule would have been suspended when the race is forcibly stopped for nearly half of that.

Having said that, apparently just about everybody bar the FIA thought that 5pm was a silly time to start.
