Emilia Romagna Grand Prix teams told to stay away from Imola in flood alert

The sport and promoters are monitoring the situation and are in consultation with further updates expected during the day. The Emilia Romagna region has been placed under a red threat-level warning from the Italian authorities because of persistent heavy rain that threatens to cause flooding and landslides. F1 remains optimistic that the race can take place this weekend, with the rain expected to continue all week but to ease after Wednesday. However the Grand Prix remains in doubt despite there being no suggestion from F1 or the promoters that the race will be cancelled or postponed. The teams, who lost vital setup time on Tuesday, now face a further day of delay and will be up against the schedule should they be allowed to return to the paddock on Thursday.
