Remark of the working day

Just after a close to-skip beneath Security Car or truck in the Australian Grand Prix in between Pierre Gasly, Yuki Tsunoda and Mick Schumacher, @g-funk ponders whether or not the FIA need to carry out a limiter to avoid mishaps beneath Security Car…

Probably an RPM limiter related to the pit lane velocity limiter for the duration of security motor vehicle intervals requirements to be investigated? It would be more quickly than the pit lane velocity limiter and would scale down as the pack bunches up and cars and trucks capture the security motor vehicle. But I consider at this stage it is obvious that the motorists will normally want to go a lot more quickly than has been considered protected by race management and will need to held back again by exterior restrictions to continue to keep absolutely everyone, together with them selves, protected.@g-funk
