Qualifying for the Formula One season opener in Australia will be completed on Sunday after a series of rain delays and darkness prevented the second and third sessions being held on Saturday.

A wet first session of qualifying was completed after a half-hour delay, but a succession of delays of Q2 meant it was becoming too dark to hold the remaining sessions.

Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg was fastest in Q1 ahead of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and Lotus’ Romain Grosjean.
