Montreal Monsoon

Less than an hour before the 2011 Canadian Grand Prix and it's pouring down rain at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.  Of course, it may stop before the race, but the track'll still be damp.  Ladies and Gentlemen, we've got ourselves a wet race! 
UPDATE: Forgot to mention the little detail that, as long as anybody on-track is using galoshes, DRS is disabled entirely.

Also, Custard d'Ambrosio has been permitted to take to the grid for the race.  The stewards decided that, since he needed to have a backup car built for him after his wreck on Friday (the monocoque was broken!), his pace was acceptable in Quals.  He'll start 24th. 

More after the race with F1 Update!

I'm watching what amounts to a liveblog for the race on the BBC. At one point it says,

Does the race have a hard time-limit for duration?

3 Yes, but they didn't reach it: two hour time limit under green flag conditions.
