Qatar grand prix postponed until Monday 13 April

The season-opening round in Qatar was postponed tonight due to torrential rain that fell moments before the start of the warm-up lap.

The Qatari race was scheduled to be run at night, under the glow of powerful spotlights. On the rain-soaked track, the reflective glare from these lights significantly reduced rider visibility so the decision was taken to abandon Sunday's running.

The race has been rescheduled for Monday 13 April at 2100hrs local time, following a warm-up session at 1830hrs.
