Due to adverse weather conditions at the Sochi Autodrom, the FIA Formula 2 Sprint Race 1 has been postponed.
The race was set to get underway at 10.30am local time on Saturday morning, however the wet track surface forced the pit lane opening to be delayed while track conditions were monitored.
With circumstances not letting up, the opening race of the weekend was postponed.
Heavy rain is expected to fall at the track until roughly 1.30pm local time, with the forecast projecting its intensity to decrease into the afternoon.
Further information will be provided in due course.
