Sochi, Sep 25 (TIWN) Heavy rain at the Sochi Autodrom on Saturday has led to the cancellation of Free Practice 3 for the Russian Grand Prix -- with doubts remaining over the possibility of holding qualifying on later on Saturday.

“Free Practice 3 had been due to start at 1200 local time. But with heavy rain, along with thunder and lightning, having hit Sochi on Saturday morning, the decision was made to cancel the third practice session,” a statement on formula1.com said.  “In the interest of safety [the decision has been taken] to modify the Official Programme by cancelling Free Practice Session 3 due to Force Majeure,” ran the decision from the race stewards.
