The trade-off isn’t worth it.
We have rule which will extend the length of most safety car periods by a lap – in other words, reducing the amount of time spent racing by a lap.
In exchange for that, on the infrequent occasions when there are lapped cars between the leaders they will be moved out of the way.
Recent history shows that is unlikely to make much of a difference. It’s rare to see many passes being made from restarts in F1.
The top drivers know how to arrange the restart to minimise their chance of losing the lead – as we saw today and many times last year.
I understand why people want the rule, but I don’t think it’s worth it. I’d rather maximise the time spent racing.
I think it’s a rule that’s better suited to series which race on shorter circuits, like ovals in IndyCar racing, rather than F1 tracks which tend to be on the long side (generally rather longer than is necessary).
