Standing start call was “in hindsight a very simple decision” | 2019 German Grand Prix

The FIA had no concerns about using Formula 1’s wet weather standing start procedure for the first time at last weekend’s German Grand Prix, according to race director Michael Masi.
“To be honest, the way it was, it was in hindsight a very simple decision to go for a standing start restart, or to start the race.”
The combination of cars lapping the circuit and a break in the rainfall allowed them to get the standing start done, said Masi.
Michael Masi: “We saw also from a standing start side of it, it was track conditions, overall level of water, the whole thing comes into the equation.”
