The decision has been made to cancel the final Formula 1 practice session at Sochi due to the weather conditions.
Why it matters: Sochi Autodrom has been hit by heavy rain, which means F1 drivers will not get a final practice session.
What they had to say:
- “In the interest of safety [the decision has been taken] to modify the Official Programme by cancelling Free Practice Session 3 due to Force Majeure,” mentioned in the stewards’ decision.
- “For the purposes of the regulations and associated time limits, Free Practice Session 3 will be considered as having taken place, except where otherwise advised by the Race Director.”
