The Formula One teams will meet with the FIA on Friday night to discuss the possibility of having the Chinese Grand Prix on Saturday.

The suggestion has been made due to the poor weather conditions in Shanghai this weekend which resulted in limited on track action during Friday’s practice sessions. The weather is due to improve on Saturday but will deteriorate again on Sunday.

In order for the race to go ahead of Saturday it would need the unanimous agreement of all the teams. The race can not be put back to Monday as the Bahrain Grand Prix takes place next weekend and all the equipment needs to be shipped to the Sakhir circuit.
