If Branson demands a change, I have one tailored for him: I suggest cars be allowed to be lapped twice by the leader, then the lapped car gets a black flag.
I didn't think that Branson was DEMANDING a change, only saying that there should not be a need to have blue flags. And I agree with him. A car being blue flagged is a backmarker, being lapped, and so the speed difference would be considerable. To a good driver, passing should not be a problem, and it is up to the overtaking driver to use the backmarker to his advantage if possible. It is ridiculous to see some cars having to come to a near stop, to let another past, especially if the overtaking car is nowhere near the slower car, but he has to comply with the four flags rule.
Monaco might be the exception though. Ask DC.
