Two Hondas, Rosberg and the two Force India cars out. Rosberg had suspension problems- the car was bouncing badly

During slight rain, Bourdais set the fastest S2 time while Rosberg gives up! I didn't understand their decision. Rosberg told through raido that his car is dancing but anyway, he should have been on track and go for it!

The rainfall radar suggests that we are clear of rain for the remainder of the session.
