Snow disrupts Formula 1 testing

Testing was disrupted by snow

Snow has caused disruption to the third day of Formula 1 pre-season testing at Spain’s Circuit de Catalunya.

Tuesday’s session had been interrupted by snow, before a further snowfall blanketed the venue overnight and continued to fall throughout Wednesday morning.

With conditions preventing the operation of the medical helicopter, circuit officials elected not to start Wednesday’s session as scheduled at 0900 local time.

Conditions eventually improved, with the green light eventually shown at 1200 local time after a three-hour delay.
