Qualifying was delayed because of rain, so the grid was decided only 4 hours before the race.
Provisional grid: SV, MW, [LH*] RK, FA, JB, NR, RB, LH, NHu, MS, NHe, FM, VP, KK, AS, JA, VL, SB, JT, HK, LdG, TG, BS, SY
*LH received a 5 grid spot penalty for a gearbox change.
The good news is that it’s dry – track temperature 36°C, 51% humidity, 5.8m/s wind.
In the warm up LdG went off at 130R – big accident under braking and hit the tyre wall really hard. He’s OK but the Virgin car is a mess. He won’t be able to take his place on the grid.
SV leads everyone (except LdG) away on the formation lap.
