F1 race start in Singapore delayed due to rain

As expected based on weather forecasts, the rain hit Marina Bay shortly after the conclusion of the W Series race, with the sky quickly starting to darken by the time the F1 drivers completed the customary parade prior to a race in the highest category of motorsport.

The raindrops began to fall in the paddock about an hour and 20 minutes before the scheduled start time (8:00 p.m. local time, 2:00 p.m. in Spain) and due to its intensity the track was flooded in a few minutes.

The rain turned into a strong electrical storm and for a moment the television cameras that were placed on the main straight could not even record the asphalt, just a great curtain of rain falling from the sky.


At 19:02 local time (13:02 in Spain), the Formula 1 information board showed the following message sent directly from the FIA, confirming the delay of the race.

“Pitlane open and start procedure delayed,” the message read. “Update in 20 minutes, a notice will be given at least 10 minutes in advance.”

According to the advanced systems of the teams, which measure the weather at the moment, the rain should pass by in the next few minutes, so the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022 race could start a few minutes after the hour planned at the beginning, despite this, it will be the FIA that will have to make a decision once the time comes, because the track could continue to be very flooded even if the rainfall stops.
