    Default F1 - Chine GP practice interupted

    First practice abandoned due to visibility. The rules state that a helicopter must be able to reach a hospital within 20 minutes from the track. This was not possible due to lack of visibility.

    Heavy rain is forecast for Sunday in Shanghai. There is some talk of the possibility of holding the rain on Saturday as the weather is forecast to be better.

    That's a pretty good metric really. But I confess I'm surprised they don't have advanced life support at the track? well, I suppose they do.

    Here is a summary of what they do have at track-side, written late 2014.

    I'd think there would be a bar in the vicinity.
