The Canadian Formula One Grand Prix was halted after completing 24 of the scheduled 70 laps on Sunday with drivers complaining that torrential rain made it impossible to race.

Red Bull’s world champion and pole sitter Sebastian Vettel was leading when the race was red-flagged and cars ordered to park on the starting grid as rain lashed across the circuit.  The race was the first run in wet weather this season, making the twisting and challenging layout all the more treacherous.
