But thanks to a quirk in F1’s regulations that ...

The safety car was called out after Carlos Sainz lost control and crashed on the first lap, and the crane – and at least one marshal – were on the circuit when the safety car led the field through the next time round, prior to a red flag before the end of that lap.

With the Suzuka race having been red flagged early on due to deteriorating conditions, and the event not resuming until there was just under 40 minutes of the three-hour maximum time limit remaining, it was never going to run to full distance.
But while teams had a rough idea of how long it would play out for, they were caught on the hop about the exact lap it would finish on.
Under F1’s ...
