“Chinese GP: Fog halts FP2 running”
The second practice session of the Chinese Grand Prix elapsed with no running this morning, due to heavy fog.
The conditions were such that it was deemed too dangerous for the medical helicopter to land at the designated Shanghai hospital, based 38km from the circuit.
As such, FP2 ended with thirteen minutes still on the clock in a session that saw no cars enter the circuit. With the first session only seeing 27 minutes of action for similar reasons, this marked a barren Friday for the fans in the grandstands.
For the teams, this will put a premium on running in Saturday morning’s one-hour final practice session.
