Qualifying red flagged
Indefinite delay in Malaysia

As expected the Malaysian monsoon has interrupted the final segment of qualifying with conditions deemed too dangerous to continue when the rain worsened just as the top ten shoot out began. The session was red flagged with seven minutes and 17 seconds remaining and no times set.

The weather has already taken its toll with both Ferrari's of Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso, and the McLaren of Lewis Hamilton, losing out in the first session thanks to the change in the weather, while Jenson Button made it through to the second segment on time but had beached his McLaren and could take no further part.

The rain is easing at the time of writing and the session should resume as soon as conditions are deemed safe.
