After reviewing the final set of rules regarding the event for which the red flag is implemented, MotoGP decided to make significant changes to the rule as it looks ready for the upcoming season and this has to happen sooner rather than later.
The changes were made after an official announcement from the Grand Prix Committee. Notice clarifying the change that has been made. Now, in case of a red flag in the race, the result will be taken into account where the leader’s net is when he crosses the starting line before the red flag goes into effect.
The previous rule was a bit vague and therefore needed a bit of tweaking. The final rule includes making it mandatory for every driver to cross the line if there is any official race classification, which means that results are taken from the entire previous lap that has been discarded by the Grand Prix Commission. .
MotoGP and Grand Prix made the rules clear in one case where a race was flagged in red
The Grand Prix Committee stated: “Previously, if a race was red flaged and the final result was announced, then that result was calculated from the lap where all the drivers crossed the finish line last.”
“If a driver or several riders trails the race leader by half a lap or more, this causes race classification to be made from the previous lap, even if the race leader and most of the course completed the next lap. In these cases, any positional change or collision during the race leader’s final lap is up for debate. “
“This system was previously applied to races that were flagged red after the race leader had taken the checkered flag and will now apply to all red flaged races where the final result is flagged. announced.”According to the report of crash.net.
This will make it fair to all riders in the event of a red flag being implemented. We wouldn’t want that to happen normally as it is a disappointment for the fans and drivers but in the event that does happen we can expect a fair race classification with a transparent judgment.
