A crane is never on track. Always behind fencing lining the track. Nothing and nobody is supposed to be outside the fencing during a race. Once the crane is needed out from behind the fencing lining the track to retrieve a car because the car could not be moved by manpower it automatically triggers a safety car.
it's not really automatic. In Sochi when Seb stopped they needed a crane trackside and they covered it with a VSC.
And even that wasn't really necessary. Yellow flags are supposed to mean people on track slow down, and drivers often carefully park in front of an exit so they could just tow it backwards with a bit of rope, so simple, but Liberty seem to have this idea safety cars that ruin the race are good for the show, and also Michael Masi seems to think the top priority is keeping his ass well covered
