F1 Blue Flag

F1 Blue Flag: During the time where it was difficult to pass in Formula One races, they introduced the blue flags. This allowed the leading drivers to pass the tail-enders unobstructed.As soon as the leading driver, e.g. Vettel, catches up the last place car to lap him, the slower car gets a blue flag waved and has a compulsory obligation to pull over or get a penalty. Some drivers yield better than others and it can cause a bit of controversy when friendly teams seem to let by some drivers easier than non-friendly teams.

But why have a blue flag any more?We now have DRS available during a race which means that if you’re within one second of the car in front, you’re allowed a significant speed boost. Any driver in a good car should easily be able to use this against cars he is lapping.

So I say, ditch the blue flags…force the leading driver to actually overtake cars and give those guys at the back a chance to defend their position. Whilst the leading drivers are struggling to pass, maybe it will allow the guys behind a little more time to catch up and lead to a closer race.
