Discussion:
OT: According to some here it is supposedly too much to ask the drivers see the "flags"
(too old to reply)

It is apparently too difficult to see them in the places where they have
always been... ...even when approaching at much less than racing speed.

Here's George Russell commentating his own lap around Mugello:

The flags HE mentions are pretty far off the driver's eyeline—being
elevated well above the racing surface...

...and he is not only looking to see them: he's figuring out in which
direction they're flying, so he can gauge the wind.

And also too difficult to auto-chromatically-adjust yellow (as in an
expected yellow flag signal), to red.

Not going to say any more, because there is no point. Masturbaker wins.

I've already agreed that the colour of the "X"s should have matched what
the event notes said.

Wow, you really are butt-hurt.

Are you going to name the "some here" for once... even if just to give
the satisfaction of having caused you so much pain.

Useless as ever.
You forgot to use the word killfile in this post.
Go walk a dog and enjoy picking up that fresh warm dog shit.

No real need to remind us that a driver who regularly finishes in the
bottom quartile has a bit more time on his hands to be looking around
him than the fastest driver out there.

Oh... ...you were serious.

You think a driver IN THE MIX of cars in front and behind has MORE time
to see flags...

...than the lead driver with a gap...

...especially when moving at safety car pace?
