Grounded helicopter halts Shanghai action

After a shortened session in the morning, with limited running for the drivers, teams would have been hoping for better in the afternoon. Unfortunately, the low-lying fog didn't shift which meant the medical helicopter was grounded. Race Control were keeping a close eye on the weather and hoping for a break in conditions but had to admit defeat and call the session off.

With fewer than eight laps each in damp conditions, the drivers will have a heck of a challenge being ready to tackle qualifying tomorrow - if the fog lifts at last.
