I’m not here to state whether the overtake is legal or not. I hate penalties in F1. I just want to know more about these floppy markers, does anyone have a link to a section of FIA regulations stating anything about these cause I can’t find anything. Unless it is an unwritten rule. Cause all I can find is this:
b) Yellow flag:
This is a signal of danger and should be shown to drivers in two ways with the following meanings:
- Single waved: Reduce your speed, do not overtake and be prepared to change direction. There is a hazard beside or partly on the track.
– Double waved: Reduce your speed, do not overtake and be prepared to change direction or stop. There is a hazard wholly or partly blocking the track.
Yellow flags should normally be shown only at the marshals’ post immediately preceding the hazard.
In some cases however the Clerk of the Course may order them to be shown at more than one marshals’ post preceding an incident.
Overtaking is not permitted between the first yellow flag and the green flag displayed after the incident.
Yellow flags should not be shown in the pit lane unless there is an incident of which the driver should be made aware.
which isn’t even official FIA but from a marshall who claims it’s FIA offical. Once again not here to argue over the overtake, just want to know about floppy markers.
