Who does through an orange flair on the track? That must be an absolute idiot! Well actually it was a security guy hired by the circuit! Afterwards the circuit officials said that he just made a small error of judgement and should have extinguished the flair in the sand behind the tribune. But hey, mistakes are easily made…. See linked YT film:
F1 Grand Prix race length has nothing to do with fuel as Paul stated.
It is rather determined at every event as the lap that takes the length over 300km +1 lap.
Exactly. Only exception is (as with many things) Monaco, because they would not make that distance within 2h around that track … I believe there it is 260km?
Almost right, in the rules it is stated as:
Sprint race: the least number of complete laps which exceed 100km or 1 hour
Race: the least number of complete laps which exceed 305km or 2 hours
Exeption is the monaco race where the race is capped at 260km
