SEPANG, Malaysia - The Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix has been red-flagged due to a wet Sepang circuit.

Drivers were recalled to the grid after running nine of the 56 laps, two of which had already been run under safety car conditions.

Front-runner Jenson Button from McLaren described sections of the track to team engineers as being "like a lake".

Race officials have announced the race will restart at 17h15 local time (11h15 in South Africa).

    Surely a race track should be made in such a way that it can cope with excessive rain?

      Yes but the conditions were dangerous for the drivers and the FIA do not want to risk injury of the drivers in risky conditions
