Sebastian Vettel (car 1): “It’s a shame when there’s so much water, as we’d love to go out on track more, but you can’t. It’s a shame for fans around the track – it’s quite windy and probably not so nice out on the grandstands.

Hopefully they can come back tomorrow with dry clothes and we’ll have some sunshine – that’s the forecast anyway! You can’t race in these conditions, as the tires can’t get rid of the water.”

Mark Webber (car 2): “It’s a shame because we love Spa and it would be nice to do some more laps, but in the end you can’t really learn much in these conditions. We got some info from FP1, but you can’t race when there’s so much standing water on track and you probably wouldn’t qualify in this, so in the end we just put the car to bed tonight and come back tomorrow.”
