The Grand Prix of Britain on MotoGP can be cancelled


As the technical director of MotoGP Mike Webb, in case of a heavy rain in Silverstone in day of a race has confirmed officially, the Grand Prix of Great Britain can be cancelled at all. The opened serious jamb of operators of a track became the reason of it: after a turn of asphalt the system of a drainage has ceased to work.

Urgent news: Dorna the second time in a week changes the schedule of BritishGP, having postponed the main race of day - in the Royal class - at 11:30 in the morning in hope to be in time till the rain.

B than reason? As it became clear on FP4, in case of a rain, the system of a drainage doesn't dewater from 8 and 9 turns. This situation has arisen after an asphalt turn therefore as it has become clear, a drainage partially or it is completely blocked.

during FP4 were in these parts formed huge pools: the heavy rain has begun unexpectedly, and water has quickly filled the lowland in Stowe. Tito Rabat has suffered serious injuries when falling in that place, also as Franco Mobridelli and Alex Rins have fallen, and Alesh Espargaro following them just has managed to ottormozitsya in time.

Qualification of Q2 has been postponed almost for 20 minutes, but about the reasons of it nothing was told on air. At this time marshals tried to remove water from these turns! Manually. There was a situation, similar to that, as on the Grand Prix of Qatar in 2017. Unlike Losail, in Silverstone know what is a rain... and with a situation have more or less celebrated, qualification has passed on "hurrah".

But then has taken place the closed meeting of Commission on Security of MotoGP at which racers, representatives of teams and Directorate which was represented by Webb, have discussed possible scenarios on Sunday.

For a start, have postponed the race MotoGP in the schedule to the beginning of day, at 11:30 (13:30 across Moscow). According to the forecast, the rain will be for 100%. But will be slightly later. In case of heavy rain, 7-8 turns will flood again, and no rain rubber will save the motorcycle from hydroplaning. Racers have said that in case of a rain they will just refuse to come for start as it will be too dangerous. After the meeting with teams, Mike Webb has made a statement.

"A problem with new asphalt that we have found the center of stagnation of water in two turns: apparently, the drainage system under new asphalt has ceased to function and water doesn't go to drains, or she is killed, and water doesn't manage to leave, - Webb has told. This problem is especially notable in MotoGP as motorcycles heavy and powerful. We have considered several scenarios, and have come to Dorna to a consensus that safety is more important than a show. We have talked to teams and have defined the new schedule of BritishGP, it also to reduce risk of cancellation of races".

What will be if the rain goes before 11:30?

"Is two options of succession of events. Now Silverstone Circuit uses great efforts to understand the reason and to correct a situation. But there is a chance of a heavy rain in the middle of the day. And if nothing is possible to eat with "plan B" - the race will be cancelled. We won't let pilots to start for safety reasons. Perhaps, the same бу
