Suspends the FP2 by the torrential storm in Austin


The tremendous storm that threatened during the first free practice sessions of the GP of the united States fell with all its virulence just before the kick-off of the seconds, which was flooding into all the path of Austin. The rays that fell on the circuit in one of the worst storms in living memory left, also, without being able to work to the commissioners of track, which made it impossible to get out to the track.

After more than an hour of waiting, and while some joked (as the pattern of boat Romain Grosjean), it was decided that it was unfeasible to expect more, not only because the track was completely waterlogged, but because the visibility was zero which, joined to the electrical activity of the storm, made it impossible to also work on the helicopter. In fact, this was the official reason of the cancellation final.

If the situation is repeated this Saturday, when the expected worst conditions of rain, repeat the situation of Japan, 2010, when the rain and the poor visibility meant that the classification is played Sunday, a few hours before the race.
