What is frustrating about the safety car is that the rule needs to be changed and fixed so that drivers do not benefit nor lose when the safety car is deployed. This has been a problem for a very long time, and they almost got it right a few years back when they introduced a rule to prevent cars from entering the pits under the safety car. I think this rule needs to be reintroduced and perhaps modified to prevent cars from running out of fuel – i have a few ideas how that is possible. Or, as newnhamlea1 stated above:
“cars should banned from entering the pitlane until a full queue of cars has formed behind the safety car. The safety car should pull up and wait at the end of the start/finish straight until it picks up the leaders, one it has picked up the leaders an orderly queue of cars should form up behind them “
On the end of the day, lets be realistic, the safety car will never be removed, and the safety car will never be fair. The drivers who build up a lead will always lose out when the safety car is deployed. But what is extremely annoying is to see cars from pos 10-15 all of a sudden go 2nd, 3rd or 4th… etc, and to see some drivers go to pits, change their wing, have a cup of tea and read the daily telegraph, come out without losing a position. Totally ridiculous.
