Also, repairs can be done and tires can be changed when someone pits on a red flag situation (race to release the car at the end of the pit lane.), inevitably putting them at the tail of the field.
WHAT THE RED FLAG DOES NOT NEED:
(Repair on the grid) it saves their position.
(Change Tires on the grid) " "
Have backmarkers interrupting the restart. (I just dont know how to put them in proper order.)
After reading most posts on this thread, i think there is an general aggreement that;
1] Tyres should not be changed what so ever - but warmers applied to keep the heat in the tyres as much as posible.
2] Repairs like Hamiltons shouldn not be allowed as well as it saves a race for him.
3] The cars should be put back into posistion order to avoid backmarkers ballsing things up.
Howver, id like to raise a couple more points;
A] Would it be fair for a driver that needs a repair to come into the pits to get the repair and start from the pit lane after the last car has gone past when the Safety Car takes the pack away from the red flag restart??
B] If we are to have the pack in race order at a red flag restart, why not do the same after a safety car period like what happened pre 2010?? Yes it takes time to get this to happen, posibly another lap or two of a Safety Car period, but the way i see it is this. If the top 10 or 12 are in race order, why not release them and them only?? If there is a small pack a sector behind, why not tell them they can race from the next sector line??
