drivers urge FIA to introduce new restart system after red flags as George Russell leads calls for change

F1 drivers have called on the FIA to change the restart system after red flags. There are ongoing safety concerns surrounding how races are restarted, with claims the marbles on the track creates an unfair disparity between drivers. The 30-second gap between the safety car and drivers at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix will be increased to 60 seconds in Miami. The F1 Grand Prix Drivers’ Association director George Russell was asked about the safety issues and he revealed the drivers are against a standing start after red flags. “But I think all 20 drivers wouldn’t like standing starts after a red flag with either 50 or 75 per cent of the race completed.”.
