More rain at Qatar.

The Qatar MotoGP race has been delayed by heavy rain.

A storm earlier in the evening halted the 125cc race after just four full laps, while the following 250cc race was reduced to 13 laps after a delayed start.

Rain returned when the MotoGP grid assembled and the start was subsequently 'delayed'. The rain then got even heavier and it now looks highly unlikely that the race will go ahead... in the next few hours anyway.

UPDATE: It is still raining heavily 20 minutes after the race should have started and the track is covered in surface water.

Racing at Qatar does not take place in the rain due to glare from the floodlights.
