Formula 1 @ Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia – suspended due to heavy rain !

It was a crazy wet race that just happened in Sepang just moments ago where the race was suspended due to heavy rain and race officials decided to call it off. There were many cars spinning out at around lap 30, so the safety car, the Mercedes SL63 AMG came out during lap 32-33.

The rain got even heavier, so the race was suspended, with all the drivers moving to the starting grid, lined up with the current positions.

After waiting for like 50 minutes, FIA decided that the race will not be restarted and also apparently there is a 2 hour window for the race. So it was decided to be stopped and the drivers will be getting half the points based on their current position.

Below are the latest standings, i think Jenson Button will be so happy that the race stopped as Nick was really very fast :p They will be getting only half the points.
