Tuesday testing extended after rain stops play in Austria

23 Jun 2015

Heavy rain halted Tuesday’s opening morning of the post-race test at Spielberg before any of the teams could run in anger. As a result the session has been extended to 2000 local time (1800 GMT).

Only McLaren and Ferrari, who had Stoffel Vandoorne and F1 debutant Antonio Fuoco in their respective cars, were able to complete installation laps before track officials decided to red flag proceedings because of the amount of standing water on track.

Conditions mercifully improved enough for running to resume after lunch, and the extension will allow teams to make up for lost time in what is the final in-season test of the year, with all squads bar Marussia in attendance. and our official Twitter channel, @F1, will bring you the latest news, images and reaction throughout the Spielberg test.
