When was the last time there’s been a black and white flag? I can’t recall one

Utter horror show for Vettel but a great win for LeClerc notwithstanding the move that probably should have been penalised.

I think they wheeled that flag out because it was so borderline and were scared to death of giving him a penalty. But they wanted to do something...

2010 in Malaysia. However, there was also a black and white flag shown in the F2 race today, hours earlier.

There's a news story from 4 days ago about the potential use of it:

It's not the best timing, since without that context (which I didn't hear mentioned in commentary?) it really does look like the stewards bottled it.

Fair enough, wasn’t aware, thanks

Basically every driver now has a ‘professional’ block available to them before being penalised?

They gave out the black and white flag in the F2 race too, that was even more crazy moves. I read that they did that as if they had given a stop/go or similar time penalty there could have been riots!

After reading the full article (only could see part of it before due to reaching the Autosport article view limit), it appears the black and white flag was actually used in Spa. Anyone know if there was any coverage at all about the rule being brought back into use? I don't watch all the pre-race stuff.

I guess we'll see how it's used going forward, but I guess if they keep applying it like they did here, you'd be right...
