Sending the car out now to see if the racing line is dry. Not raining, but lot's of lightning.


Just said 250cc postponed to half past. May give half points and shorten race distance.

125: Iannone 'wins' red-flagged Qatar GP
The first race of the 2009 125cc grand prix season has been red-flagged after just four full laps due to torrential rain at the Losail circuit, in Qatar.

Racing at Qatar does not take place in the wet due to visibility problems caused by glare from the floodlights.

Pole sitter Julian Simon had just taken the lead from Iannone at the time of the weather change. Simon then fell due to the rain, but was able to get his bike back to the pits and be credited with second position.

After some safety car laps, with Valentino Rossi among the passengers, it was decided to abandon the race and award half points.

The result was thus taken from the end of the last complete lap before the race was stopped: Iannone, Simon, Cortese, Espargaro, Smith, Folger, Terol, Bradl, Webb, Rabat.

Factory KTM star Marc Marquez had earlier escaped serious injury in a spectacular highside, after running wide onto the artificial grass on the exit of a fast right-hander, while battling for third.

It now remains to be seen if the rain will stop, and track dry sufficiently, to allow the 250 and MotoGP events to go ahead as planned.

That high side was big.

It's not raining and the safety car is making it's laps. It looks very dry, but very reflective. The pit lane and front straight are completely dry. The back of the circuit is the problem.


Well at least they actually need umbrella girls, even though it's a night race.

Compared to the 250,000 they get at Euro races, um yeah, one bit of grandstand ain't chit.

There isn't any seating at any other corners.

Yeah, I know just that small space for them. Still, if I was a spec.....the race must go on....


They just announced it will be half points, race distance 2/3 (13 laps). They will race the 250's.

They are gridding up!

Said it is slicker than FP1 because the rain brings down a lot of sand.
