Project description_


The FIA has also clarified the rule stating that all lapped cars will be allowed to unlap themselves and then join at the back of the field during safety car periods. From 2010, once cars were lined up behind the safety car, lapped cars were no longer allowed to unlap themselves before the race was restarted. This rule was abandoned from the 2012 season onwards, with cars now allowed to unlap themselves before the race resumes however, since 2015, the safety car need not wait for the backmarkers to catch up with the leading pack before returning to the pits. The main news is that lapped cars will again be able to unlap themselves under the safety car. This was a procedure carried out up to 2009, but was stopped after the process took too long. However, as lapped cars in the middle of the field has ruined several restarts, such as the 2010 Brazilian Grand Prix, the FIA has re-introduced the rule. 39.12 If the clerk of the course considers it safe to do so, and the message "LAPPED CARS MAY NOW OVERTAKE" has been sent to all teams via the official messaging system, any cars that have been lapped by the leader will be required to pass the cars on the lead lap and the safety car. Before the safety car returns to the pits all lapped cars will be allowed to unlap themselves and then join the back of the pack, ensuring a clean re-start without slower cars impeding those. The safety car is not always that safe, as usually the lapped cars are allowed to pass the safety car and can speed around the track to join the back of the snake behind the safety car, therefore, not being controlled by the safety car's pace, which, arguably, could cause another, possibly bigger accident, especially in poor weather conditions. Lapped cars passing the safety car. Lapped cars will once again be allowed to pass the safety car. This rule was previously introduced in 2007 but was scrapped at the end of 2009. As was the case when the rule was last enforced, lapped cars will only be allowed to unlap themselves if the clerk of the course allows them to. Now my question is that if lapped cars are not allowed to pass until the incident has been cleared up for safety reasons, how come KVY and RoGRO were let through by the SC. If the SC can let all cars pass between it and the leader right away, surely lapped cars should also be let through right away. The FIA has brought back the rule allowing lapped cars to pass the safety car. The rule was last used in F1 in 2009. It proved problematic because of the large amount of time lapped cars needed to pass the safety car and re-join the train, as most F1 tracks are over five kilometres long. How fast can lapped cars travel in F1 when they overtake under safety car? Surely they have to be going faster than the safety car, and therefore driving more dangerously, so is their speed still limited.
