Anyone unfortunate enough to be there yesterday?
Felt so sorry for the fans who turned up and you deserve a medal if you actually stayed untill the official call off.
From what I could see on the box there wasn't a cat in hells chance of it going ahead.
Not good.

Agreed, I especially feel for anyone who actually traveled internationally to see the race...  I'm sure the circuit management will be having some terse discussions with the paving company in the next few days/weeks.

I agree it's not rocket science just a slight camber probs solved

The re-surfacing company will have done what the contract required of them, if they weren't asked for a camber they won't have laid one....
It was interesting though to hear Razlan Razali, the CEO of Sepang circuit say they had to re-surface 3 times a few years ago to obtain the desired result, he suggested it wasn't an easy fix.

Mind you, even Wickes has the answer!
