    Don't think so since they had a lap under safety car.

    Probably knew no one would pit and gamble so they red flagged it to take it out of the teams hands. Probably sensible given the speeds they're blowing at.

    Do they go back to grid for restart? That could be interesting.

    Gotta feel for Max there. He had that well and truly won.

    On the plus side. A Perez win would be good.

    Seems a little silly to restart it for 2 laps, asking for mayhem.
    Then again think of the replay value!

    He’s driven superbly this weekend. He’s got that Red Bull cracked at last.

    Hamilton in trouble here I think, Merc has been terrible at getting the tyres to temp on the first flying lap.

    Drivers getting detention for going too fast on the double yellows.

    Sounds like they may be improving the 'slight lift' on yellows is acceptable. They have needed to change that habit for a long time. Maybe need to set max sector time or even pit lane limit.

    So one lap to form the grid, then one lap of racing. What could possibly go wrong?

    Got to love a race where everything stops, the drivers get out and mill about and no one knows really what’s happening and when. It wouldn’t be F1 without an element of farce.
