It was driveable at the proper speed, what that speed was I do not know, the drivers who aquaplaned of track were exceeding that speed, but not all drivers were aquaplaning of track. The drivers are racing at the pinacle of the autoracing and as such I expect that they can manage racing in the rain.
No need for red flag yesterday.
for you, it seems, there are just two different conditions: dry and wet. but there are much more. dry, light rain, rain, showers, showers with thunders etc.
the thing is, if there is too much rain and too much water on some places, the drivers cant really control the cars, and have visability problems. for you this is no reason to interrupt, till the situation improves, but thankfully there are people who think different, and i am not just talking about the drivers and the team memebers who all welcomed the interruption. i am also talking about fans, who can understand decisions.
and here is an opinion from a person who was there yesterday:
Having actually been sat at the track yesterday, I have to disagree. The rain was apalling, it really doesnt translate to TV that well. Luffield all the way round to as far as I could see up Woodcote was underwater when it was flagged, it really was undriveable.
