That last 20 minute delay was stupid, it was hard rain for about 2-3 minutes then drizzle after that
I really don't like what they are doing under wet conditions. It's like they have completely forgotten what Formula 1 is about. Nothing wrong with using the safety car or even stopping the race when conditions become too extreme, but sometimes they go way too far with these decisions.
For example Montreal 2011. That would have been a pretty good wet race, even after the restart, if they had done it properly. But no, they had to wait until the track was almost dry, thus changing the whole race. Too often they wait way too long to restart the race or pull the safety car, thus ruining the race of those who had prepared for the conditions.
Nice Bottas got into Q2! Like seeing some up and coming talent..Don't know what to say about Maldonado and his comments when his rookie partner makes it through.. Could be he had some bigger problems or excuses
