The Daily Star reports that Green Flags WERE being waved moments before Jules Bianchi's horror smash. The FIA had issued a statement that yellow flags - a signal to a driver to slow down and be prepared to stop - were being waved following the incident involving Adrian Sutil. But horrific footage of the Bianchi crash has come to light showing that in fact GREEN flags were being waved immediately before. Green flags indicate the driver has passed the potential danger point and that prohibitions imposed by yellow flags have been lifted. Eight seconds before the smash, it's reported that only greens - and NO yellows - are waving.
The FIA is to consider a change in the decision-making process regarding safety car deployment. At present the safety car is the sole responsibility of the FIA race director Charlie Whiting. The FIA will now consider whether the decision process should be handled by more than one person, but this will require in-depth analysis before changes can be made. They will also look at the consistency of the safety car deployments.
