Remark of the working day

Ought to motorists who lead to crimson flags in qualifying have their finest occasions deleted to stay clear of motorists intentionally gaming the method for an benefit? Lots of show up to assume so, but @brightlampshade factors out some likely problems…

We have experienced crimson flags for motorists managing more than kerbs and them coming free, exact same for manholes.

A driver spinning and then a 2nd has a greater incident making an attempt to stay clear of the initial.

Intense illustrations indeed but they’ve took place from time to time.

I absolutely concur with the intent of the notion, but in actuality it is not a minimize and dry detail. Primarily as it is down to human selections/mistakes on no matter if to toss a crimson/yellow flag.BLS
