FIA moves Russian GP support races amid weather concerns

The FIA has brought the Formula 3 race at the Russian Grand Prix forward to Friday evening due to a poor weather forecast throughout Saturday. Heavy rain earlier in the weekend flooded a number of areas of the Sochi Autodrom, and the forecast for Saturday is for more torrential downpours that could see more than 1.7 inches of rain falling in the morning. A thunderstorm in the afternoon is also predicted, that could have an impact on Formula 1 qualifying at 3:00 p.m. local time. Given the forecast and with F3 in its title-deciding weekend, the decision has been made to move the first F3 race forward to Friday evening in Russia, in turn moving Formula 2 qualifying earlier as well.
