Riders called for Yellow Flag briefing

Ahead of the Gran Premio Red Bull de Andalucia, MotoGP™ Race Direction and the FIM MotoGP™ Stewards Panel held a briefing with the MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™ classes to inform the riders of an important update made to the way Yellow Flags are to be managed. This is in order to improve on-track safety for all riders and marshals involved in all three classes of the FIM MotoGP™ World Championship. For a number of years, any improvement in sector time achieved under a double Yellow Flag has led to the cancellation of a rider’s laptime as a matter of course. From now on, that will now be extended to include single Yellow Flags. A rider can no longer improve their laptime under a Yellow Flag of any kind, and as soon as a rider enters a sector with a Yellow Flag, their laptime will be cancelled.
