FP2: Not a single lap in Chinese GP second practice

Second practice for the Chinese Grand Prix never got underway on Friday as poor weather conditions meant the medical helicopter could not land at the designated hospital.

Following minimal running in FP1, the teams and drivers had hoped to make up for most time in the afternoon's session at the Shanghai International Circuit but it was not to be.

The start was initially delayed because the medical helicopter was unable to land at the designated hospital.

The FIA announced that the session would still end at 3:30pm local time.

As the clock counted down on the allotted 90 minutes, the only action was Lewis Hamilton leaving the pits to head to the grandstands where he signed caps before throwing them into the crowd.

The FIA eventually called FP2 with 12 minutes on the clock and not a single lap completed.
