the stewards had to make a decision based on the safety of the drivers. f1 is about the racing, not about those of us who watch on tv. i have been in melbourne, and flash flooding is not unexpected. whilst agreeing that cars use wet tyres and should be able to race in those conditions, it becomes a lottery, not a race. the stewards had access to weather data and decided that delaying would cause problems with light, they made a sensible decision. it is not the first time that quali has been posponed or even cancelled due to rain. i even remember when there were NO rain tyres, and race could be stopped as soon as a few drops of rain fell. f1 must always consider the safety of the participants as a priority. we dont like it??? tough, we just have to accept the decision
