I just read that if conditions don't allow for qualifying on Sunday morning, the grid will be determined by the second practice session times. I didn't realise this could happen. Has it ever happened in the past?

This is a complete joke.
As just one example; Leclerc forced Hamilton off the track at very high speed - risking a massive accident and possible injuries. No action taken!
Steiner offers an opinion that a steward is an idiot - no risk/nobody hurt. Actions being considered include deducting team points!!!
Get a grip!

A statement from Liberty, F1 commercial rights holder last Thursday has been taken by most as meaning there are no competent bids from new teams, if we read it carefully however this might be far from the case.
Liberty's statement wording - ‘while Formula 1 appreciates their interest, we can confirm that there are no serious discussions with any persons or companies about the admission of a new team’ - does not actually say they have had no approaches and if said approaches are credible.
Two problems arise anyway from Liberty's statement:-
(1) applications for entry must be made to the FIA not Liberty.
(2) teams can race without a commercial agreement, it's happened before, but now it could be a real headache for Liberty and image rights etc.
Racefans.net has more to say on this issue, and why Liberty may not wish to have more teams in F1.

Dixon says it'd like a road car and that's exactly what it looks like.
Takes the open out of open wheel racing.

Well...that was a bit of a Ferrari bungle. Seb made the start of the season, and agreements aside, he would have won if it wasn’t for his breakdown, but the question is didn’t his wash hold up Leclerc too much? If Merc hadn’t had the VSC thanks to Vettel’s car failure, they would have been battling for the 3rd step. It would have been interesting to see if Ferrari had made the switch, if Leclerc would have been able to pull away from Vettel. The unanswered question I guess.
Another disappointing day for Ricciardo and Raikkonen.
Fantastic race for Albion and Max kept his nose clean.
Honorable mention for Pérez, Mag and Hulk.

I am not sure what Ferarri was up to today but they didn't help either driver with their supposed previous agreement between drivers.
Seb gets a great start and starts to run away and then the team calls Leclerc to say Seb will let him by next laps!!
The radio call to Seb was not a surprise when he refused to pull over.
Seb had a better start..let them race.
I truly am thrilled to see someone of Leclerc's talent grow and develop into, what I believe, will be a future champion. But I don't agree with team orders about whoever gets to be ahead based upon an arrangement made beforehand.
Nice to Lewis was able to capitalize on Ferrari's misfortune today and increase his lead in the championship as he hasn't gotten many wins lately.
The win of the day for me was to hear Paul di Resta doing colour on Sky in place of Martin Brundle.
I see Paul as a worthy successor to Martin as I find Martin can be a bit pompous now and again.
Sochi is a rather boring track. I realize they are trying to get use out of a facility that has no real use now it has finished as an Olympic site.

Guess we'll see other big outfits escalating the arms race with plenty of capital expenditure ahead of the proposed budget cap.
Not so much a level playing field then as a lessening incline for challenger teams.
