The F1 Singapore Grand Prix race, originally set to start at 2000 local time (1200GMT), was delayed due to heavy rain, and took off at 2105 local time (1305GMT) with the cars scheduled to set off on their formation lap. The latest news is Safety car out: 14 cars on-track.
After the rain stopped, the F1 event’s organisers stated that the formation lap would start at 9:05 p.m. to provide marshals time to remove significant standing water from the course.
