F1における赤旗によるセッションの中断、レース再開の手順




 

天候の悪化や大きなアクシデントの発生により、競技の続行が困難と判断された場合、全てのオブザベーションポストで赤旗が振られ、シグナルブリッジではレッドライトが点灯されます。

フリー走行、公式予選

フリー走行および公式予選において赤旗が提示された時、全ての競技車両は減速してピットインしなければなりません。赤旗が提示されてセッションが中断されても残りの走行時間は延長されることなく、カウントダウンを続けます。

セッション再開の時間についてはタイミングモニターなどによってチームに伝えられます。残りの走行時間がわずかしか無い時は、赤旗をもってそのセッションが終了となる場合があります。

赤旗の提示により走行が妨げられ、タイム計測ができなかったとしても抗議は受け付けられません。

 

 

決勝

決勝において赤旗が提示された時、ピットロード出口のシグナルが赤となり、全ての競技車両は追い越しをすることなくピットインしなければなりません。ピットインした車両はピットロード出口ライン(赤旗ライン)手前からファストレーン上に1列に整列し停止し、レースが中断されます。レース中断中はファストレーン上でチームスタッフによる作業が認められています。

タイミングモニタ等でレース再開の時刻がチームへアナウンスされ、10分前からカウントダウンが始まります。また、セーフティカーが隊列の先頭に着きます。

 

レース再開 内容
3分前 全ての競技車両はタイヤを装着
2分前 トップ車両の前にいる周回遅れ車両がピットアウトしコースを1周走行する
1分前 エンジン始動

 

レース再開の時間になるとグリーンライトが点灯されレースはセーフティカー先導により再開します。レース再開2分前にピットアウトした車両が隊列の後ろに合流し、セーフティカーを先頭とした隊列が形成されます。その後の手順はセーフティカー運用ルールのセーフティカー解除の手順に従ってレースが再開されます。

 

 

赤旗中断のままレース終了

赤旗でレースが中断したまま再開できずに、そのままレースが終了となる場合もあります。F1では、この場合、レースが中断された周回の1周前の順位がレース結果となります。

 

 

2020 FORMULA 1 SPORTING REGULATIONS

41) SUSPENDING A RACE

41.1 If competitors or officials are placed in immediate physical danger by cars running on the track, and the clerk of the course deems circumstances are such that the track cannot be negotiated safely, even behind the safety car, the race will be suspended.
Should it become necessary to suspend the race, the clerk of the course will order red flags to be shown at all marshal posts and the abort lights to be shown at the Line.

41.2 When the signal is given overtaking is forbidden, the pit exit will be closed and all cars must proceed slowly into the pit lane. The first car to arrive in the pit lane should proceed directly to the pit exit staying in the fast lane, all the other cars should form up in a line behind the first
car.

41.3 Any cars unable to return to the pit lane as a result of the track being blocked will be brought back when the track is cleared and will be arranged in the order they occupied before the race
was suspended.
Additionally, any cars in the pit lane or pit entry at the time the race was suspended will be arranged in the order they occupied before the race was suspended. Any cars in their garage at the time the race was suspended will be arranged at the back of the line of cars in the fast
lane in the order they got there. Any such cars will be permitted to leave the pit lane when the race is resumed but must re‐enter the pit lane when the safety car returns and may join the race once the last car has passed the pit exit after the re‐start (also see Article 42.8).
In all cases the order will be taken at the last point at which it was possible to determine the position of all cars. All such cars will then be permitted to resume the race.
The Safety Car will then be driven to the front of the line of cars in the fast lane.

41.4 Whilst the race is suspended :

a) Neither the race nor the timekeeping system will stop, however, in accordance with Article 5.3 the length of the race suspension will be added to the maximum two hour
period.

b) Cars may be worked on once they have stopped in the fast lane but any such work is restricted to that listed in i) to ix) below and must not impede the resumption of the race.

i) Starting the engine and any directly associated preparation.

ii) The addition of compressed gases (see Article 4.5 of the F1 Technical Regulations).

iii) The fitting or removal of permitted cooling and heating devices.

iv) Changes to the air ducts around the front and rear brakes.

v) Changes to the radiator ducts.

vi) Changes made for driver comfort.

vii) Changing wheels and tyres.

viii) Repair of genuine accident damage, including the replacement of assemblies containing such damaged parts.

ix) The aerodynamic set up of the front wing may be adjusted using the existing parts. No parts may be added, removed or replaced.

c) Only team members, officials and duly accredited television cameramen will be permitted in the pit lane.

41.5 Unless asked to do so by the FIA, cars may not be moved from the fast lane whilst the race is suspended. A penalty under Article 38.3(c) will be imposed on any driver whose car is moved from the fast lane to any other part of the pit lane.
At all times drivers must follow the directions of the marshals.

 

 

2020 FORMULA 1 SPORTING REGULATIONS

42) RESUMING A RACE

42.1 The delay will be kept as short as possible and as soon as a resumption time is known all teams will be informed via the official messaging system, in all cases at least ten minutes warning will be given.

42.2 Signals will be shown ten minutes, five minutes, three minutes, one minute and fifteen seconds before the resumption and each of these will be accompanied by an audible warning.

42.3 When the three minute signal is shown all cars must have their wheels fitted, after this signal wheels may only be removed if the car has been moved out of the fast lane or during a further race suspension.
A penalty under Article 38.3(d) will be imposed on any driver whose car did not have all its wheels fully fitted at the three minute signal or has any of its wheels changed before it leaves the pit lane after the race has been resumed.
At the two minute point any cars between the safety car and the leader, in addition to any cars that had been lapped by the leader at the time the race was suspended, will be allowed to leave the pit lane and complete a further lap, without overtaking, and join the line of cars behind the safety car which left the pit lane when the race was resumed.

42.4 When the one minute signal is shown, engines should be started and all team personnel must leave the fast lane by the time the 15 second signal is given taking all equipment with them. If any driver needs assistance after the 15 second signal he must raise his arm and, when the remainder of the cars able to do so have left the pit lane, marshals will be instructed to push the car into the slow lane. In this case, marshals with yellow flags will stand beside any car (or cars) concerned to warn drivers behind. Drivers may leave the fast lane in order to pass any car unable to leave the pit lane.

42.5 The race will be resumed behind the safety car when the green lights are illuminated. The safety car will enter the pits after one lap unless :

a) The race is being resumed in wet conditions and the race director deems more than one lap necessary, in which case see Article 24.4(l).

b) All cars are not yet in a line behind the safety car.

c) A further incident occurs necessitating another intervention.
When the green lights are illuminated the safety car will leave the pit lane and all drivers must follow, no more than ten car lengths apart.

42.6 Overtaking behind the safety car is only permitted in the following cases :

a) Any driver who is delayed when leaving his position in the fast lane or during the lap(s) behind the safety car may overtake to re‐establish his original starting position provided he does so before he crosses the first safety car line on the lap the safety car returns to the pits. Should he fail to do so he must re‐enter the pit lane and may only re‐join the race once the whole field has passed the end of the pit lane after the race has been resumed.
A penalty under Article 38.3(d) will be imposed on any driver who fails to re‐enter the pit lane if he has not re‐established the original starting order before he reaches the first safety car line on the lap the safety car returns to the pits.

b) Drivers may leave the fast lane in order to overtake any car delayed when leaving its position in the fast lane.
Any driver whose car has been pushed from the fast lane, in accordance with Article 42.4 above, may not overtake in order to re‐establish the order before the race was suspended.

42.7 Either of the penalties under Article 38.3(c) or (d) will be imposed on any driver who, in the opinion of the stewards, unnecessarily overtook another car during the lap (or laps).

42.8 When the clerk of the course decides it is safe to call in the safety car a message “STANDING START” will be sent to all teams via the official messaging system, all FIA light panels will display “SS” and the car’s orange lights will be extinguished. This will be the signal to the teams and drivers that it will be entering the pit lane at the end of that lap.
At this point the first car in line behind the safety car may dictate the pace and, if necessary, fall more than ten car lengths behind it.
Once the safety car has entered the pit lane all cars, with the exception of those that were in their garage at the time the race was suspended (see Article 41.3), must return to the grid, take up their grid positions and follow the procedures set out in Article 36.9 to 36.13.

42.9 If, after several laps behind the safety car, track conditions are considered unsuitable to start the race from a standing start, the message “ROLLING START” will be sent to all teams via the official messaging system, all FIA light panels will display “RS” and the car’s orange lights will be extinguished. This will be the signal to the teams and drivers that it will be entering the pit lane at the end of that lap.
At this point the first car in line behind the safety car may dictate the pace and, if necessary, fall more than ten car lengths behind it.
As the safety car is approaching the pit entry the FIA light panels will be extinguished and replaced by waved green flags with green lights at the Line.
No driver may overtake another car on the track until he passes the Line (see Article 5.3) for the first time after the safety car has returned to the pits.
Each lap completed while the safety car is deployed will be counted as a race lap.

42.10 If, after several laps behind the safety car, track conditions are considered unsuitable to resume racing at all, the message “RE‐START PROCEDURE SUSPENDED” will be sent to all teams via the official messaging system and all cars must enter the pit lane behind the safety car. The procedures set out in Article 41 and Articles 42.1‐42.7 must then be followed and there will be no standing start.

42.11 If the race cannot be resumed the results will be taken at the end of the penultimate lap before the lap during which the signal to suspend the race was given.
