For god sake guys of course it had to be red flagged .. Ferrari got their strategy completely wrong meaning they were not going to get into Q3 . Something had to be done to avoid this catastrophic situation happening . Todd, Berni , Whiting , some things never change . Punish the smaller teams when they outwit the big boys

as an F1 fan as well as a bike fan i find it astonishing they red flagged it,just watched Motogp qualifying and it was chucking it down,helmets on and off they went,and two wheels you have considerably less grip.

I don't agree with red flagging a qualifying season because of rain/bad weather/plenty of running water, there should be no red flags for the above mentioned reasons in qualifying once the season has been started, it's up to the teams/drivers to decide the conditions, anybody going out and try doing a time does so at his own risk, red flagging it will punish those who managed a good time, those that did so at their own risk,

A credit card sized tyre contact patch aquaplanes too trust me.The best way to clear a wet track is to put F1 cars with wet tyres on it.The session would of been over by now if they just carried on.
