Qualifying for the Russian Grand Prix is under further threat as the FIA cancels all track action ahead of qualifying with the hope the weather will improve enough for the local airport to reopen and the medical helicopter is able to fly.

An FIA statement read: “An updated timetable has been issued with the next session being F1 qualifying at the originally scheduled time.

“While the conditions at the track have improved, there is still inclement weather in the local area that is affecting the airport and road network.

“This is why there won’t be any running between now and F1 qualifying, by which time we expect the local airport to reopen so that our medical helicopter can return to being operational and the session can go ahead as planned.”
