    supposedly the cloud cover is so low that it hinders it from making it to the hospital safely; its the medical helicopter.....

    I don't remember the last time a copter couldn't operate. The weather doesn't seem that hectic. What's the problem? Imagine a situation like this on Sunday...

    Oh, so it's not an F1 related issue. That's good to know.

    That would be great!! If the car is competitive, WCC is almost a given with FA and SV as the pilots.
    Seb plays his games on the track unlike Hamiltons politics, so it wont be much of a problem for the team between FA and SV. Though i have my doubts if SV would want to go up against FA in equal machinery.

    07:29 Whiting has also confirmed that if the session can't get underway during the original 90-minute period, then this practice session simply won't happen.

    Sky F1's David Croft spoke to a 'logistics man' during the break between sessions about what could happen if these conditions continue throughout the weekend, putting qualifying and the race in doubt.

    One option may be to delay the race until Monday but that will pose problems down the line:

    “We have a grand prix in Bahrain in seven days’ time. It’s already a bit of a rush to get things to Bahrain. I don’t think we could go racing on Monday without creating a huge amount of chaos for those who have to set the garages up and get the cars ready.

    “Everything gets packed away after the race on Sunday and there are three pallets of air freight per team. One pallet has to leave the track by midnight on Sunday. That then goes straight to Bahrain and gets there in time to get to the track by Tuesday morning. Everything they need to set up the garages goes by midnight on Sunday. Everything then follows ad gets there by Wednesday morning.

    “An advance team goes straight to Bahrain to set up the garage and then the rest of the crew get there first thing on Wednesday and it is all hands on deck for every single team. It’s kind of cutting it fine but it can be done.

    “If you then race on Monday, everything is pushed back by 24 hours and chances are not everything will be set up and ready by Thursday for practice on Friday.

    “I suppose they could bring the race forwards on Sunday or potentially cancel Friday practice in Bahrain – but then you are cancelling a day’s track action when promotors in Bahrain would want people to come.”
