With the rain continuing to fall over the Albert Park Formula 1 Circuit the stewards had no choice but to postpone the rest qualifying session for tomorrow morning.

The decision was that Q2 and Q3 will start Sunday morning at 11.00am Sydney time, and while this is no doubt a disappointing end of Saturday’s running the safety must always come first.

Here are the partial results:
