Qualifying delayed until Sunday morning

The start of qualifying was delayed by 30 minutes after a rain storm hit the track before the lights when green.

An action packed Qualifying 1 session saw everyone head out on full wets. Rosberg was immediately quick, whilst team mate Lewis Hamilton spun his car on the exit of Turn 1, luckily managing to survive with just a broken rear end plate. Other mistakes came from van der Garde, Felipe Massa, Sergio Perez, Mark Webber, Paul di Resta, Charles Pic and a big crash right at the end of the session for Esteban Gutierrez.

Eliminated drivers: Maldonado, Gutierrez, Bianchi, Chilton, van der Garde, Pic.

The start of Qualifying 2 was continuously delayed until the FIA announced that Qualifying would instead take place at 11am on Sunday morning, due to the continuing rain and the lack of light at the track.

Q2 and Q3 are the only sessions left to take place
