Roll on What is a rolling start in F1?

The FORMULA 1 2023 season is set to get underway with the Bahrain Grand Prix. F1 races can start in two different ways, which are the standing start and the rolling start. A rolling start has the cars on the grid in a formation behind a safety car at a pre-determined speed for a number of laps. Rolling starts are typically used when the weather conditions are deemed too unsafe for a standing start. A standing start is a more typical start to an F1 Grand Prix, with drivers starting in a stationary manner in their respective grid spots. Last season, the Monaco 2022 Grand Prix had a rolling start, which was due to heavy rainfall.
