F1 delays Singapore GP start amid torrential rain

Formula 1 has announced that the start of the Singapore Grand Prix will be delayed following a downpour at the Marina Bay Circuit.

Just an hour before the cars were set to take the starting lights, a heavy shower of rain hit the track, leaving it heavily saturated.

It forced F1 to announce the start had been delayed due to the conditions, with another update expected at 19:30 local time.

F1 has not yet confirmed when the race will get underway. The pit lane is closed, with cars not permitted to leave the garage.
