F1 drivers react to Melbourne rain delay
- From the section Formula 1
Formula 1 drivers react to the news that qualifying at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix will be delayed until Sunday morning following heavy rain.
Only the first knock-out part of qualifying was run at Albert Park in Melbourne as race director Charlie Whiting decided conditions were too dangerous to continue.
Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg, who set the pace in the first session, says the delay is a "pity" as he felt comfortable out on the track while McLaren's Jenson Button says the decision will cause "mental stress" but it is the fans who he feels sorry for.
